W Winter in the Dolomites

Skiing, hiking and relaxing

Ski vacation in Val Gardena is world famous: whether because of the 1,200 km of slopes of the Dolomiti Superski, the famous Sella circuit, the World Cup races or simply because of the many unique experiences that our guests take home every winter.

The Angelo skiers will find everything their heart desires: 3 lifts starting directly from the village center, professional ski guiding, ski shuttle, ski pass at the reception, overnight ski service and much more.

Those who prefer to spend their winter vacation without skiing, on the other hand, can expect guided snowshoe hikes, winter walks, tobogganing and the winter flair in the pedestrian zone of Ortisei, in addition to sauna, pool and massages.

If you want to hone your technique, you can do so with a ski instructor from one of Ortisei's ski schools.

There you will have the possibility to register yourself or your children directly at the hotel.

Enjoy winter without skiing

Snowshoeing, tobogganing and relaxing

If you want to spend your winter vacation without skiing, you will find countless possibilities to enjoy nature in a sporty or leisurely way in Ortisei and the surrounding Dolomites. Whether with a wellness day in the cozy SPA of Hotel Angelo Engel or fully active on the mountain: experience the winter vacation in the Dolomites from a whole new side!

Guided snowshoe hikes

Experience the liberating feeling of a snowshoe hike in the Dolomites.
A professional mountain guide from the Catores Mountain School accompanies our guests through the silence of the snow-covered alpine pastures and mountains.
We are also happy to advise you for an individual tour. In any case, the appropriate snowshoes as well as poles are available free of charge at the hotel.

Hiking in winter

Hiking in Val Gardena is great, also in winter. Many well marked trails lead you to breathtaking viewpoints, delicious Alpine huts and cozy coffee houses. Especially the Alpe di Siusi and Val d’Anna offer several options to meet up with skiers on one of the mountain restaurants, making Val Gardena the ideal destination for families and couples with different interests.
Especially popular are the short path to the Annatal, the Trenker Promenade to S. Cristina and the panoramic paths on the Rasciesa and Alpe di Siusi.

Horse-drawn sleigh rides

A horse-drawn sleigh ride in the snow is hard to beat in terms of romance. From the mountain station of the Alpe di Siusi you can start your comfortable horse-drawn sleigh ride across the largest high alpine pasture in Europe. This way you can easily reach the surrounding huts and inns, where you can enjoy the day on wonderful sunny terraces and in front of incredible mountain scenery.


Would you like to go tobogganing? From the mountain station of the Resciesa funicular in Ortisei leads a 6 km well prepared toboggan run down to the valley. Toboggan a few times to the middle station, enjoy a hearty lunch at one of the alpine huts at the top and then race down to the valley. 

Cross-country skiing

Alpine skiing is not your thing? No problem. For cross-country skiers Val Gardena is wonderful: The Vallunga valley in Selva di Valgardena, Monte Pana in S. Cristina and the Alpe di Siusi above Ortisei offer unique tracks and fantastic scenery. The valley is undoubtedly an Eldorado for all cross-country skiing fans, with over 115 km of well-maintained trails of all levels of difficulty.

Not enough?

Then glide on fast runners over the ice skating rink of Ortisei, give a horse the spurs in the snowy landscape, fly over the Dolomites in a paraglider, stroll leisurely through the pedestrian zone of Ortisei or simply let yourself be pampered all day long at the Hotel Angelo Engel... Ask us anytime, we will be happy to give you any recommendations you may need!
