Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in Val Gardena
Freeriders on the whole find Val Gardena a cool place to ride, with a good mixture of terrain features from trees to banks and wind lips. The best off-piste riding can be had in areas like Passo Pordoi, but it's best tackled with the services of a local guide.
Freestylers will find that the okay fun park and halfpipe, located on Alpe di Siusi, is the place to hang out and get some air. If youre there at the right time you could also be riding to tunes by top DJs.
There's also 2 boardercross circuits at Passo Sella and Comici/Piz Sella.
Riders of all levels will find millions of well-pisted trails to get their fix from. Runs crisscross all over the area and no rider will see all of them in a weeks' trip, or even two.
Beginnerswho can’t learn to snowboard here must be clueless idiots; this place is a first timer’s heaven. The runs up above Ortisei are full-on, perfect nappy territory. READ NEXT: Village life, accommodation & nightlife
