The Civetta ski resort in Belluno really started buzzing in the 1980s! That was when it joined the Dolomiti Superski association as Veneto’s largest ski area.
What can you expect there? Varied and family-friendly slopes, action-packed snow parks, regional cuisine and of course the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage site. Get to know the El Dorado for families in Veneto that is the Civetta ski resort – you won’t regret it!
Civetta enchants winter sports enthusiasts from early December until the end of April. The mountain is surrounded by three valleys in Belluno: Val Cordevole in the west, Val Fiorentina in the north and Val di Zoldo in the east. Civetta also forms the Civetta-Moiazza range with various smaller peaks, and is a part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage site.
However, the beautiful landscape is certainly not the Civetta ski resort’s only outstanding quality. Historic values, traditional crafts and heartfelt hospitality characterise the region in Belluno. At the same time, Veneto’s largest slope region is truly deserving of its name as a modern winter sports hub. Visitors ski and sleep in the surrounding communities of Alleghe, Selva di Cadore and Zoldo. Skiers and snowboarders can also be found on three slopes in Palafavera.
Good to know: names aren’t always what they seem! “Civetta” is the Italian word for “owl”. However, the locals from Alleghe call their mountain “Zuita”. Bet you didn’t know that!
The perfect slope for every winter sports enthusiast – skiers and snowboarders can quickly choose their personal favourites from the total of 80 kilometres. 25 blue slopes with an overall length of 30 kilometres give newbie and returning skiers a safe start. A total of 44 kilometres on 18 moderately difficult slopes promise varied descents. And last but not least, the daring can tackle sporting challenges on four black slopes with a total length of six kilometres.
Heavenwards: 22 state-of-the-art cable cars and lifts carry you safely from one slope to the next. Check the lift operating hours now!
Two snow parks, unlimited action: the two snow parks Alleghe Central Park and Zoldo Alleghe have a lot to offer! With kickers, jibs, lines, a half-pipe and a snowboardcross route, they leave nothing to be desired for snowboarders and freeriders. Also, the big air bag promises even longer hang time. Dare to try adventurous stunts in front of the unique mountain backdrop of the Dolomites! The “Mini Central Park” ensures that even newbie freestylers don’t feel left out.
You are spoilt for choice in the Civetta ski resort in the Dolomites – choose between one ski resort or as many as twelve unique slope regions. The 80 kilometres of skiing fun in Veneto’s largest ski resort are more than enough for you? Then check out the overview of slopes and lifts in Belluno. And pick your ski pass for a single day, multiple days or even for a whole season.
Want more? That is simple in the Dolomites! The UNESCO World Heritage title guarantees more beautiful landscapes, while the Dolomiti Superski ski pass ensures more snow-based action, in twelve ski resorts with 1,200 kilometres of slopes, to be precise.
From cosy, rustic mountain huts to elegant mountain restaurants – the food and drink options in the Civetta ski resort leave nothing to be desired. Home-made Casunziei ravioli, airy pumpkin dumplings and hearty venison ragout spoil connoisseurs during their hard-earned refreshment breaks. Small snacks, fresh sandwiches and home-made cakes round off the culinary range. Of course, in best Dolomite tradition, no meal is complete without a schnapps afterwards!
By the way: many of the mountain huts can be booked exclusively for dinner with your nearest and dearest, or other private events. Simply reach out to the friendly hosts!
A must for all party animals: après-ski in the Schirmbar at the valley station until late at night! The sporting and musical events around Civetta are worth a visit.
