We've booked with Neilson for next year, St Christina, just outside Selva. RYA membership gets you an extra 5% discount, not to be sniffed at on a Half Term booking

My experiences with Crystal ranges from awful to overpriced OK. As a family, we go independantly these days. We've have some great family run hotel connections in Selva these days.

Mrs M was in 'Verbs' last week visiting the eldest who is a Snowboard instructor out there. She said that it was amazingly warm and Verbier is high (3300m tops). It is forecast to drop back to seasonally normal temps this week.

SC is the middle village of three in the Val Gardena valley. Selva is the pick IMV because it's on the Sella Ronda and central to everything. St. Christina is only slightly off of it. Col Raiser and Seceda are above SC, they are awesome areas.Again, I'd dump the TO and go indy. Barely any half term loading that way.

Jim and I have been to the valley DIY so many times now, that it's a doddle. We'd gladly help out with planning.

We'll be there en masse in Jan '15.

I've been thinking about taking the kids skiing for a while, but have always baulked at the half term prices so any more cost effective suggestions would be very helpful.

Would the Dolomites be a good choice for a first time trip with children? From a quick glance Selva seems to involve a lot of bus action. On the half a dozen or so times I've been skiing we've normally had direct access from the resort to the slopes but the occasional ski bus experience has not been great.

Nope, no buses at all unless you're in poorly located accomm.

Selva is PERFECT for kids.

The Hotel Astor, where we were last month, is 60m from nursery slopes.
