Win a seven-night ski holiday in Val Gardena
Thursday 14 October 2010
Val Gardena is one of Europe's best-kept ski secrets, a beautiful valley of three villages nestled inamongst the Dolomites in the Italian region of South Tyrol.
It is a place of raw Alpine beauty - in fact, it was recently granted UNESCO World Heritage status in recognition of its stunning scenery. More importantly though, Val Gardena is also a Mecca for serious skiing pleasure. There are more than 175 km of in-bound pistes to explore, from Val Gardena in the middle of the Dolomiti Superski-region, you can access to 200 lifts and 500 slope-kilometers, for example - not including the iconic Sella Ronda, a world-famous 65 km circuit which takes in four villages around the Sella mountain.
The Val's three picturesque villages bridge the cultural gap between Austria to the north and Italy in the south, making for an intriguing mix of Teutonic efficiency and Italian charm and cuisine that really has to be experienced to be believed.
And now, Val Gardena and Crystal have teamed up with The Independent to offer a very special prize - a seven-day skiing holiday there for two. The prize includes flights, ski hire and a twin/double room in the brand new, contemporary-styled Saslong Smart Hotel in the village of Santa Cristina and 2 Dolomiti Superski passes.
It couldn't be simpler to enter - just fill in your details below to be entered into the prize draw.
