Selva flat light recommendations?

 Poster: A snowHead

Hi all

It's a bit dim in Selva today. Where would you recommend for tree-level runs? A good mix of blues, reds and blacks...minimal flat bits if possible Smile and opportunities for side piste always a bonus

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

+1 for Plan de Gralba. From there you could even ski across to the tree lined runs at Mont De Suera!!

Or the run down to Monte Pana is tree lined. Once there you could do the magical mystery bus trip to Saltria on the Seiseralm and ski locally near Saltria then catch the magical mystery bus back to Monte Pana (bus fare is 6 Euros return). Bus timetable: https://www.valgardena.it/dl/stchristina/pdf/Skibus_Monte_Pana_Silbernagl.pdf (note current timetable is on the last page of the pdf file). Smile

I am now convinced the Dolomiti Superski piste map artists are locked in a bitter standoff with their sworm enemies the piste app designers over whether lifts should be known by number or by name, and whether pistes should be labelled with anything at all. Their common nemesis the piste sign writers use either convention with impunity but tolerate no connection between the names they put on the signs and where the piste ends up. I'm pretty sure somewhere above Ortesei I saw a piste marked Birmingham and the North.

Despite this, mostly by luck we did visit Plan de Gralba, Mont De Suera and the run to Monte Pana. All were good - PdG was a bit crazy because many large Italian families had the same idea, but the others were quiet and quite magical with heavy snow falling through the trees.

Our subsequent decision to ride down Monte Pana, walk to the funicular and go up to Secada in a blizzard and whiteout was less successful, but piste 8 down again was knee high fresh stuff til the treeline. If only we could see it!

@brokenbetty, throw the map in the bin, (or just use the overview side as a general “which village is where” finder,) and follow the signage, which generally is pretty good, but forget trying to find specific pistes unless you know the area and instead navigate by the towns and lift names.

D!


Never had issues with any specific area paper map in the Dolomites regarding piste numbers. They all seemed to correlate to the actual signage on the piste. I never even knew that the pistes had specific names until I discovered the 3d reality map. Usually before I go on a trip I'll analyse the pistes and lifts using the 3d reality map which definately helps.
