Ski circuits are great fun, and a must for every ambitious skier … It’s a good thing that there are not one but two spectacular ski tours in the Dolomiti Superski region! And: one of them has been awarded the “Best ski circuit” certificate by skiresort.de. Both ski tours take you right through the Dolomite mountain range. The unique “Sellaronda” ski tour runs over the four Dolomite passes around the Sella massif. You pass through the Ladin valleys of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Arabba and Fassa. In total, 40 kilometres of tours await – 27 kilometres of those offer pure, unadulterated skiing fun. The Gebirgsjägertour ski circuit, also known as the Peace Tour, passes beneath the walls of the famous summits Civetta, Monte Pelmo, Tofana and others. Two ski circuits with a unique mountain backdrop and a dream view!

The skitour of the four Dolomite Passes around the Sella massif, one of the most spectacular of the world. The tour can be done easily in one day, without removing your skis and passing through the four Ladin valleys: Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Val di Fassa and Arabba. It can be done clockwise or anticlockwise, starting from any of the four valleys. Clockwise the colour of the signposting is orange, anticlockwise it is green. It covers a total distance of 40 km, 26 of which are ski slopes. The Sellaronda tour can be done by skiers of intermediate level.
It is advisable to reach the final Pass by 3.30 pm, since otherwise reaching your final destination could become difficult. In the event of bad weather (snow or strong wind) some lift facilities might be closed.
Giro della Grande Guerra
The First World War is the theme of this tour and in spite of the serious subject there is an optimistic tone. In fact, those who are familiar with the grandiose alpine landscape of the Dolomites will tell you the meaning of the word freedom. Austrian mountain troops and the German Alpine corps along with the Italian 'Alpini' were present here from May 1915 until November 1917, engaged in a bitter struggle for survival. At the epicentre of the fighting, Col di Lana, the tour passes under the cliff walls of those famed peaks like Civetta, Monte Pelmo, Tofana, Lagazuoi, Conturines, Settsass, Sassongher, Sella and Marmolada. We're talking about a day out on those breathtakingly beautiful slopes for all the family.
The run from Lagazuoi to Armentarola and the Punta Rocca run (over the Marmolada glacier towards Malga Ciapela) are particularly spectacular. In fact the Civetta skiing resort is a frequent and superlative starting point. You can also set off on your tour from S. Cassiano, Corvara, Arabba and Malga Ciapela.
