As one of the largest ski domain in the world, the Super Dolomiti range offers fantastic sport, in a stunning landscape. Add in quaint and excellent huts to stop at, an unparalleled number of easily accessed resorts and you know that you won’t be disappointed. With the Marmolada range just five minutes drive up the road and the linked Arabba area, you can enjoy intermediate and advanced skiing to your hearts content. Go 10 minutes in the opposite direction and access the excellent and varied family oriented skiing in the Civetta range allowing you to visit three different valleys in one day.
And if you fancy a couple of piste based tours, we have two fantastic routes on our doorstep which take in the best of the breathtaking scenery of the Dolomites and provide a great physical workout at the same time! The first and most famous is the Sellaronda – just take the ski lifts over to Arabba and you are right on it in either direction. This takes the average skier most of the day and crosses through the Marmolada/Arabba, Val di Fassa, Val Gardena, and Alta Badia ranges (so a full Dolomiti Superski Pass is essential). The second is the Giro della Granda Guerra which loosely follows the WW1 front line. Slightly less well linked than the Sellaronda, this is never the less a fantastic day out, skiing the Civetta range, then catching a bus to near Passo Giau, then over the tops to Passo Falzarego to ski a hidden (and very tranquil) valley down to Armentarola, then over the back of the Alta Badia range to Passo Campolongo and through Arabba to return back to the head of Val Pettorina. Of course you can do this in the opposite direction as well, although you’d miss the excellent ski down to Armentarola.
All of this can also be achieved by using the regular ski buses which leave just 400m from the door. Ski pass prices, ski maps and ski area info including weather updates can be found at Dolomitisuperski.com.

The Dolomites are also reknowned for the excellent linked ski tours you can complete. Below we have some in depth information about how to approach the tours and the best runs to watch out for, as well as some variations. All of them have been described from Casa Alfredino, but can of course be completed from anywhere on the tour.
Sellaronda – Orange clockwise direction around the Sella Massif
Sellaronda – Green anti-clockwise direction around the Sella Massif
Giro della Guerra – a tour through the Civetta, Falzarego, Alta Badia and Arabba/Marmolada ranges
Panorama – This takes you around Val di Fassa through some excellent and less skied areas in utterly beautiful surroundings
Hexentour – This is a less known tour around Alpe di Suisi is probably the easiest in terms of the skiing.
