Ortisei (St.Ulrich) Dolomiti SuperSki – or just Ortisei if you prefer – is a fabulous year-round resort with unique charm and local culture. Positioned just a few kilometres away from the beating heart of Selva, Ortisei is a more traditional market town that’s about more than just epic skiing. Medium in size and huge in terms of importance, Ortisei is the administrative and agricultural centre for the region. Which in turn means it lacks that often synthetic/purpose-built vibe that’s common among mainstream ski resorts.
Ski Resort Location
The Gardena Valley needs no introduction as an outright mecca for ski-lovers at all levels. Forming part of the wider Dolomiti SuperSki region – the largest in the world – you could spend years here and barely scratch the surface of what’s on offer. The immediate ski lifts on the doorstep of Ortisei may be limited, but you don’t have to go far to find exactly what you’re looking for. And as mentioned, Ortisei has a thriving life beyond skiing, making for great entertainment and enjoyment both on and off the slopes.
The pedestrianised centre of Ortisei is home to far more cafés and stylish hangouts than any town of such a size really needs…and all to its credit! The whole place remains wonderfully animated day and night, while outstanding accommodation standards make Ortisei great for families. Topped off with a world of quick and convenient transport connections to the wider SuperSki area, Ortisei delivers on all fronts for all visitors.
