Dolomites

Dolomites (Dolomiti) Italy The Dolomites ski region provides one of the largest and most delicious ski networks in the world. Named after the type and colour of the pale limestone rock that is found naturally in the spectacular mountains, the Dolomites are a wonderful ski region.  The Dolomiti Superski offers 12 bellissima ski areas connected by 450 ski lifts.

The Dolomiti Superski area takes great delight in offering a true Italian foodie experience, as you combine an impressive high alpine environment, beautiful rifugios, history and great skiing with tasty local al dente pasta washed down with your choice of local vino, espresso or café latte. It’s la dolce vita (the sweet life) in the Dolomites!

Dolomites Ski and Snowboard Terrain The Italian Dolomites ski area offers more than 1,200km of “guaranteed” pistes ranging between 1,400 and 3,200 metres of elevation. Dolomiti doesn’t receive as much fresh powder as Austria or Switzerland, but there are over 4700 snow making machines covering an eye-watering 1160km (97%) of piste runs across the resorts. And what it doesn’t have in the snow stakes it makes up for with beauty. It is so beautiful that it has recently been classified as a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.

The 12 main ski resorts across the Dolomites ski region are: the exclusive and expensive Cortina d’Ampezzo; impressive Kronplatz; Alta Badia; the very popular Val Gardena; Val di Fassa; Arabba / Marmolada; 3 Peaks Dolomites (Drei Zinnen a.k.a Sesto); Valle di Fiemme / Obereggen; San Martino di Castrozza / Passo Rolle; Eisacktal (Valle Isarco); Alpe Lusia / San Pelegrino; and Civetta. The best way to experience this area is with the “Dolomiti Superski” Pass which accesses all the ski slopes and the 28 Snowparks that are spread across the Dolomites Superski network. See the Dolomites lifts and terrain page for information on the ski valleys of the Dolomites.

The Dolomites is famous for two day tours. The Sella Ronda is a 36km loop that goes across four of the ski valleys (Alta Badia, Val Gardena, Val di Fassa and Arabba), whilst the Great War Ski Tour (Giro della Grande Guerra) packs in historical landmarks, lots of ski slopes, and even a horse drawn “ski lift”. See the Dolomites lifts and terrain page for more information.

Ski Holidays Italy An Italy ski holiday offers a superb cultural experience. Schussing the slopes and ski touring the mountains,valleys and villages is only part of the experience. There is an emphasis on enjoying long lunches, vino, panoramic views and hanging out with the fabulously friendly locals.

Where is the Dolomites Ski Area? The main Dolomites (Dolomiti) ski region borders Austria in the north east of Italy. The Dolomites (Dolomiti) is relatively easy to get to, given its central European location. The easiest route to the Dolomites is via Milan (Milano) Airport, but it’s also not far from Verona, “Marco Polo” in Venice, or the airport in Innsbruck Austria. Airport transfer services are available to take you directly to the major Dolomite resorts such as Cortina d’Ampezzo and Val Gardena. Car hire is also available at these airports.  Click below for all airport transfers.
Airport Transfers
The Italian train operators Trenitalia / SAD can efficiently get you there via Verona either from the south via the main railway line Venezia S.Lucia – Calalzo di Cadore, or from the north on the Fortezza-Dobbiaco railway line. Three resort areas (3 Peaks, Eisacktal and Kronplatz) are directly accessible by train on the lines north of Bolzano (Bozen). Bus transfer services are available for the main resorts and local public buses or taxis will get you to the rest.

Why Ski or Snowboard in the Dolomites? Whilst the region does not boast the highest mountains or the largest number of glaciers, the Dolomites does offer some of the world's most spectacular alpine environments, tonnes of sunshine, fabulous food and an awesome light show off the pale mountain backdrop throughout the day. The ski terrain on piste is not particularly challenging but the region is really geared up for lift assisted ski touring and other pleasures such as the local Trentino, Venetian and South Tyrolean cuisine and welcoming and warm village atmospheres.

The Dolomiti SuperSki pass, Sella Ronda, Great War Circuit and the massive investment in snow making capabilities demonstrates the passion and ingenious use of technology and cross-region co-operation to provide an excellent skiing and culinary experience to benefit both the tourists and the locals.

And just because you may know a little Italian language, be prepared to hear the local “Ladin” dialect and German. The main language spoken varies from valley to valley, adding to the sense of adventure. If you meet their passion with your passion for their mountains and culinary delights, you should be fine!!
