Outdoor & Adventure

It’s the Largest Ski Resort in the World

Dolomiti Superski is the world’s largest ski resort with 450 lifts and 745 miles of slopes in 12 valleys. Lifts and slopes are all on one ticket – the Dolomiti Superski pass. Not all the slopes are directly connected to each other by runs, but you don’t need to drive more than one hour to reach everyone of them.

The Scenery is Just Fantastic


UNESCO declared the Dolomite mountains a World Heritage site in 2009 because the landscape is amazing in terms of scenery, geology, flora and fauna.

A winter paradise, formed 250 million years ago from the primordial sea. At that time, the peaks were probably atolls. We might therefore say that skiers are in fact exploring a barrier reef that turns fiery red/dark violet at sunset. An experience that warms any heart!

Endless Ski-Safaris and Thrilling Ski Tours

Skiing every day in a different valley, and spending the night up high in one of the 400 mountain lodges in the middle of the Dolomites makes it an unforgettable experience! If you just want to have a one-day-ski tour, the Sellaronda Tour is the absolute highlight. 26 miles around Sella massive in both directions, passing through 4 valleys and always surrounded by stunning peaks.

Slopes for Everybody

The Dolomiti Superski ski region offers a big variety of slopes. 30% of all slopes are blue (for beginners and families with small children), 60% are red (for advanced skiers) and 10% of the slopes are black, that means steep and long and they should be skied only by expert skiers.
