Mountain Christmas" in Selva Val Gardena, December 2018 - January 2019

"Nadel da mont", this is what this unique Christmas market, with mountain village character in Selva Val Gardena is called.


The idyllic village of Selva is located in the heart of the Dolomites and offers endless ski fun thanks to the connection to the ski carousel "Sellaronda". From the 6th of December to the 6th of January a touch of slope flair will be brought into the village center of Selva. Original Christmas cabins will be floating over many luminous huts and creating a magical Christmas world that can be experienced with all senses.

Enjoy nice events for example the music entertainment with the CDJG Brass Quintett, magic balloon – balloon art for everyone and the snow sculptures contest. The snow is transformed and comes to life with the sculpture competition in the snow in Selva di Val Gardena. The competition reached its 22nd edition and is an adventure in the form of creativity and originality, where contestants challenge by working a fascinating and complicated matter. The result? Perfect and evocative works, which seem to be to life. This competition has now become a tradition - it started in the early '90s. Sculptors and artists, mostly of the valley, who usually carve in wood, have fun for three days to realize their giant size figures in icy snow. This year the theme chosen is dedicated to the jubilee "150 first ascent of the Sassolungo". A spectacle that you can admire for hours, always discovering new details, carved in the slightest detail by the sculptors.
