Selva – Snow Report, 30 Mar 2010

SelvaThe snow base is 168cm deep at the top of the Marmolada and 40cm on the lower Sella Ronda slopes.

My advice for the week, get out early! The pistes are in great condition during the first few hours of the morning, where you can ski in the beautiful surroundings of either the Ciampinoi or the Dantercepies.

The temperatures have dropped over the past few days, which is preserving the much needed 5 inches of snow that arrived last Friday/Saturday. So once again, if you aim high, that’s where you’ll find the best snow.

Guests are venturing out to the wonderful sights and runs of the Marmoloda today to experience breathtaking views and long runs at around 3250m high and Arabba is still a skiers favourite at the moment. As the direction of the sun is not always facing on the runs in the Alta Badia region, it means that the conditions around that area of the Sella Ronda are being well maintained.

If it’s your cup of tea, there are some purpose built mogul pistes around the Sella Ronda, so for people who like to experience a more challenging kind of skiing, keep an eye out for these on your way round.

Snow, snow, snow! Tuesday night Selva is due around 11cm of snow, with light snow carrying on until Thursday morning where another 14cm of snow is expected to arrive. Brilliant!

Temperatures will be dropping though to around -4˚ with a slight wind chill tagging along to. Then on Friday, the sun may make another appearance but temperatures are set to remain a little lower than the previous few days.

Moonlight shopping hits Selva on Tuesday where the shops will be staying open late and with those end of season sales on, a bargain or two is sure to be found! Whilst shopping there will also be some street artist entertainment around and maybe including some fire jugglers.

On Thursday sees the start of the practice for the Val Gardena Spring Trophy. Groups from around the local area perform ice shows and provide other means of entertainment to try and win the coveted and prestigious title. From novice to juniors and men to women, everyone can take part and is sure to be a great experience.
