Family Riffeser

In the Hotel Biancaneve we would like to give you the possibility to spend quality family time together.

In 1977 Walter Riffeser built the Biancaneve which for 30 years has been a welcoming Residence with cozy apartments in one of the most beautiful locations in Selva Val Gardena.

Irma has run the Biancaneve for over 40 years with great success. Her husband, who sadly passed away a couple of years ago, will certainly be proud of how well the Biancaneve has grown and developed. After an elaborate reconstruction in 2006 the Residence was turned into the first Family Hotel in Selva Val Gardena.

A couple of years ago, Irma’s son Ferdinand joined the family business. Ferdinand studied Economics in Siena and Valencia and likes to travel around the world: he explored the Trans Siberian Railroad, climbed the Kilimanjaro and even lived in Moskaw and Brisbane for several months. Ferdinand is very passionate about sports and is a huge fan of A.C.Milan. He is responsible for the day-to-day operations and business management of the hotel. At the Tyrolean dinner, every Tuesday, you will see him with traditional Tyrolean pants.

Guido, the youngest member of the family has been studying in the United States for several years. He spent two years in Phoenix, three years in Fort Lauderdale and two in Billings. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sport & Management and a Master’s degree in Public Relations. In 2017 he came back to Val Gardena where he helps in the hotel management.

As a family, it is very important to us that you spend an unforgettable holiday together with your family.

Irma, Ferdinand & Guido
