Dolomiti Ski Tour: Sellaronda from Cortina d'Ampezzo
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Good location on Sella Ronda, Marmolad side challenging but best views and skiing. Also good access to the rest of Sella Ronda and recommended for the avid skier.

Well I have skied Espace Killy, the Arlberg, Fernie BC, Zermatt and plenty more - but after a week in Arabba I'm left wondering if there's any one place as good. Glorious black runs on the Porta Vescovo, sweeping scenic blues and carving reds on the way over to Corvara, and piste-based day tours such as the Sella Ronda and 'Hidden Valley' via Lagazuoi. Even with access compromised by lift closures at the end of a heavy snow season, i.e. no clockwise skiing on the Sella Ronda or access to Marmolada mountain, it was possible to find something new each day. Rather than follow the crowds on the Sella Ronda I would suggest exploring around until you find a piste or two you particularly enjoy, then ski them a few times. For example the black run down to La Villa is pure joy! Snow conditions are also excellent away from any hard-pack on the more frequent routes.

Arabba is a skiers resort and great for getting to resorts both on and off the the Sella Ronda. Apres ski is limited to a couple of bars which are lively after skiing but get quieter as the night progresses. Shopping opportunities are limited but all essentials are catered for. If you go on holiday to get the most out of skiing this makes a great destination.

We spent a week in Arabba for skiing with friends. Have been there before a couple of times. It is a nice but small town in the middle of the Dolomites not too far from Venice. 2,5 hours by bus. The ski- and life system is vast and provides enormous possibilities for all skiers. And it is currently cheap to visit Italy, at least if you are a Swede as I am. Hotel Barbara is among the nicest to stay.

A great resort with access to so much skiing, and varied too. Highly recommended.

Probably not for the beginner, but for those with a little more experience or courage. Vast and varied.
