Two ski routes across the Dolomites

The Sellaronda and the First World War ski route – two unforgettable tours in a winter paradise

Ski from resort to resort, enjoying the snow, the nature, and the food. In the Dolomiti Superski region there are two outstanding ski routes, and you can access them both with your Dolomiti Superski skipass. Both ski routes go up and down the Dolomites. In 2020 the Sellaronda was even awarded the Best Ski Route award by skiresort.de
The Sellaronda is one of the best-known ski routes in the world, encompassing four Dolomite passes around the Sella group. You’ll ski across the Ladin valleys of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Arabba and Val di Fassa, covering a distance of 40 km, 27 km of which are pure skiing fun.
The First World War ski route, also known as the Peace route, covers an 80-km route around the Col di Lana, a mountain which has become a symbol of the First World War, passing famous summits such as Civetta, Monte Pelmo and Tofana. 

Unique mountain landscapes and breathtaking views guaranteed: both ski routes go up and down the Dolomites, and you can access them both with your Dolomiti Superski skipass!

SELLARONDA

This is a stunning ski route that goes over four Dolomite passes around the Sella group, up lifts and down slopes.
The route covers the four Ladin valleys of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Arabba and Val di Fassa. You can easily cover it in a single day, heading in either direction around the route. If you’re following the route clockwise look out for orange signage, while green signage guides you around the route anti-clockwise. The Sellaronda is 40 kilometres long, of which 27 km are ski slopes. In 2020 it was awarded the Best Ski Route award by skiresort.de.
The route is of medium difficulty and requires a bit of stamina!


Tips:

  • This route takes about 6 hours to complete. We recommend setting off before 10 a.m. so you can be on the last pass by 3:30 p.m. This will get you to the end of the route before the lifts close. 
  • Check the weather before heading out. If the weather conditions are bad (e.g. blowing snow and strong wind), some lifts may be closed.

Warning
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.

THE FIRST WORLD WAR SKI ROUTE

This 80-km route goes around the Col di Lana, a mountain which has become a symbol of the First World War. This is where Austrian, German, and Italian forces battled between 1915 - 1917. It now represents a war memorial, and this tour is sometimes called the Peace route. It passes famous mountains such as Civetta, Monte Pelmo, Tofana, Lagazuoi, Conturines, Settsass, Sassongher, Sella and Marmolada –stunning views guaranteed. 
This ski route is challenging and only for experienced skiers.

Tips:

  • Allow for 6 - 8 hours for this route. If you want to complete the First World War ski route in a single day you should set out early. You can also split it over two days, giving you more time to explore the ski resorts.
  • The Civetta ski resort is a popular starting point for the First World War ski route, but you can also set off from San Cassiano, Corvara, Arabba and Malga Ciapela.
  • The downward slopes from Lagazuoi to Armentarola and from Punta Rocca over the Marmolada glacier to Malga Ciapela are stunning. The latter is 12 km long, making it the longest slope in the Dolomites.
