The Val Senales Glacier is 3.200 meters high.Â There is an impressive gondola that is lifting the skiers in only a few minutes from the 2100 meters of the valley to the glacier which is located in the very north of the Italian Alps on the border to the Austrian Alps, 70 kms from Bolzano and about 120 from St.Moritz, Switzerland.
The glacier is open all year round, although it might be not usable for skiing during the peak period of the winter, as the temperature might be very low and the wind too strong.
