Winter Holidays in Val Gardena Valley

The Green Pra Palmer B&B turns white

Silence? In Val Gardena it’s only when the snow falls!

Green turns to white and our winter cloak perfectly suits the Green B&B Pra Palmer too. Then we become a quiet retreat for snow hares, a congenial base for ski enthusiasts and assorted winter holidaymakers.

Pra Palmer Green B&B is where the action is: the ski lifts and practice slopes are just behind us, where kids get to practice their first moves. You too, can get into shape here before tackling the more challenging slopes in the Val Gardena Valley!


Or if you prefer, you can take a back seat and follow the action directly from your room - or better still: from your balcony. Now isn’t that a VIP view!

The Pra Palmer is also ideal for seasoned skiers. Get ready and head for the ski lifts on the sunny Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm mountain plateau. Or take the ski bus up to Selva Gardena/Wolkenstein, which is just a 10 min walk from the top of the panoramic Seceda. What’s more, the ski bus stops right in front of the Pra Palmer Green B&B!


A happy smile and a red nose on the ski slopes: that's winter holidays in Val Gardena for you! But the Val Gardena has much more to offer than just skiing!

Here are the most popular winter holiday activities in Val Gardena:

  • Ski & Snowboard

    If you enjoy skiing and snowboarding, you’ll enjoy Val Gardena. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or if you’re racing down the legendary Saslong like a pro competing for the World Cup. Here we have slopes for all levels of competence.

    The gentle "Wiesenpiste" facing our B&B is an ideal practice slope for children and learners. After your ski lessons, you can progress to the 40 km world-famous Sellaronda ski circuit beneath the spectacular Sella massif. This is the main attraction during a skiing holiday in Val Gardena.

    If even after this winter outdoor adventure you’re still not yet ready to call it a day in the warm waters of the Mar Dolomit aquapark, then here’s some great news for you. With its 12 ski resorts the Val Gardena forms part of the Dolomiti Superski, the world's largest ski network. And you can access all of them with just one Dolomiti Superski Pass!

  • Cross-Country Skiing

    At just a 5 min walk from our Green B&B, lies the cable car valley station that takes you up to the Alpe di Siusi plateau. Besides numerous other ski slopes there’s also an 80 km network of cross-country ski trails, leading through the snow-covered Alpine meadows. Though some of these cross-country trails are easier than others, they all offer a unique panorama of this magnificent mountain landscape.

    Besides Val Gardena and S. Cristina/St. Christina there are cross-country trails in Selva Gardena, in the tranquil and spectacular Vallelunga Valley. Especially for nature lovers.

  • Sledding

    No winter holiday is complete without a ride or two on the sled run, particularly for the younger set – and the young at heart! The cable car takes you directly from Ortisei/St. Ulrich to the summit of the Raschötz. You’ll be blown away by the stunning view! This epic 6 km sled run goes almost down as far as the valley.

  • Snowshoeing and Ski Tours

    But not all winter sports take place on the ski slopes. Those interested in exploring the less frequented parts of the Val Gardena, might prefer snowshoeing and ski touring. Various snowy trails lead through spruce forests, rewarding more intrepid adventurers with magnificent views of the Dolomites. Local mountain guides lead guided tours through this UNESCO world natural heritage site, with some of the most fascinating anecdotes about the Val Gardena. Go to:

  • SPA and Wellness

    A skiing holiday in Ortisei can sometimes be quite demanding. Skiing down the black ski runs strains the thighs and the winter temperatures also take their toll. A full massage and wellness program are “sorely” needed. The Mar Dolomit pool and sauna Spa complex is free of charge for our guests!

    Cabin saunas, stone baths, Brechel baths, a vitarium, aromatic sauna, Jacuzzi whirlpool, hay bath, steam baths, a Kneipp pedal pool, children's pool and more. All this at just under 100 m from the PraPalmer Green B&B!

We’ll be happy to give you some additional on-the-spot advice.

 With us, you can feel at home.
