Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Dolomite Superski vs 3 Valleys

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
All sorts of good advice here. I and a lot of others on here can't recommend the Dolomites enough for intermediate skiers. You are nearly guaranteed well-groomed pistes and at least a few bluebird days. We've been to Val G 5 years straight, minus 2021, and this year I think I saw 2 or 3 clouds the entire week. That said, we also didn't get a flake of new snow, and I have to say I was craving fresh, natural snow by the end of the week.

The one thing that the Dolomites offer is the ability to give intermediate skiers the feeling that they're not missing out on anything. If you can even skid a turn, you can ski the entire SR area without fear. Even the few so-called black runs are just groomers, albeit steep, but not fearsomely so, and completely devoid of moguls.

IDK if the Antares is a proper "hotel" or small apartments. We always stay in apartments and splurge on lunch then make our own simple dinners. The dining options in Selva proper are not tremendous, to be honest. Whereas there are dozens of mountain restaurants that range from acceptable snack bars to near Michelin-starred places...

It's definitely a proper hotel with half board.

Oh, yeah, right, I know where that place is, right on the main drag. It's about 200 m from Ciampinoi main bucket lift and the ticket office. Slight uphill to get to the lift but downhill on the way home...half board should be fine there. My problem is we have huge lunches in the Dolomites so I'm just not hungry for dinner...

When I'm in the Dolomites I tend not to have lunch, or if I do a quick bowl of soup. Why waste the beautiful scenery and activity by sitting down and spending almost an hour eating. You can do that at home.

Shocked You are certainly not wasting the beautiful scenery in most of the rifugios on a fine day. And I do not consider sampling the food produced in these rifugios, which is nothing like what I eat at home, a waste of time. But each to his own.

Any recommendations for apartments in val gardena? 4 middle aged blokes so 4 beds or proper twins preferred.

Same here. The lunches have been a major feature of the trips I've done to the Dolomites. They still leave more than enough time for me to do as many hours skiing as I can, these days. Sitting looking at a lovely view is a different experience to skiing past it with your eye on the road.
