Dolomites (Dolomiti) Italy

The Dolomites ski region provides one of the largest and most delicious ski networks in the world. Named after the limestone rock that is found naturally in these spectacular mountains, the Dolomites offer a unique ski holiday experience. The Dolomiti Superski offers 12 Bellissima ski areas connected by 450 ski lifts all under the one lift pass.

The Dolomiti Superski area takes great delight in offering a true Italian foodie experience, as you combine an impressive high alpine environment, beautiful rifugios, history and great skiing with tasty local al dente pasta washed down with your choice of local vino, espresso or café latte. It’s la dolce vita (the sweet life) in the Dolomites!

Dolomites Ski & Snowboard Terrain

The Italian Dolomites have numerous ski resorts, but it is the 12 Dolomiti Superski resorts that attract most of the attention. The Dolomiti Superski offers more than 1,200km of “guaranteed” pistes ranging between 950m and 3,269m in elevation & up to 12km long. The terrain includes high alpine glaciers on the Marmolada; kilometres of perfect piste trails especially good for families, beginners and intermediates; masses of interesting fun-slopes and terrain parks; plus, when the snow is deep, excellent off-piste bowl, chute & tree skiing.

The best way to experience this skiing area is with the “Dolomiti Superski” Pass which accesses all the ski slopes & lifts that are spread across the Dolomites Superski network. See the Dolomiti Superski area resorts map here.

The Dolomiti doesn’t receive as much fresh powder as Austria or Switzerland, but there are over 4700 snow making machines covering an eye-watering 1160km (97%) of piste runs across the resorts. And what it doesn’t have in the snow stakes it makes up for with beauty. It is so beautiful that it has recently been classified as a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.

The 12 main ski resorts across the Dolomites ski region are: classy Cortina d’Ampezzo; impressive Kronplatz; the fine food & terrain of Alta Badia; the popular Val Gardena; Val di Fassa; the area's highest ski resort Arabba-Marmolada; 3 Peaks Dolomites (Drei Zinnen a.k.a Sesto); Valle di Fiemme - Obereggen; San Martino di Castrozza - Passo Rolle; the Eisacktal (Valle Isarco) resorts of Plose & Gitschberg-Jochtal; Alpe Lusia - San Pellegrino; and beautiful Civetta

The Dolomites is famous for two ski major ski tours. The Sella Ronda is a busy 36km loop that goes across four of the ski valleys (Alta Badia, Val Gardena, Val di Fassa and Arabba-Marmolada), whilst the Great War Ski Tour (Giro della Grande Guerra) packs in historical landmarks, lots of ski slopes, and even a horse drawn “ski lift” over an arduous 80km.

See the Dolomites Ski Resorts page for more information on skiing & snowboarding the Dolomiti Superski area.

Ski Holidays in the Dolomites

An Italy ski holiday in the Dolomites offers a superb cultural experience. Schussing the slopes & ski touring the mountains, valleys & villages is only part of the experience. There is an emphasis on enjoying long lunches, vino, panoramic views, over-nights in mountain rifugi & hanging out with the fabulously friendly locals.

Where are the Dolomites, Italy?

The main Dolomites (Dolomiti) ski region borders Austria in the north east of Italy & start about 100km south of Innsbruck. As with most European ski areas, the Dolomites are relatively easy to travel to, with some notable exceptions (i.e. Civetta). For most international travellers the best gateway airports to the Dolomites are Milan Malpensa, Munich or Venice Marco Polo airport. For flights originating in the UK, Europe or Scandinavia, Innsbruck airport in Austria & Verona airport are excellent starting points.

Airport transfer services are available to take you directly to the major Dolomites ski resorts such as Cortina d’AmpezzoAlta Badia & Val Gardena. There is car hire available at all the airports, however the Powderhounds recommend taking the train & bus from the airports to the Dolomites. For those that just cannot abide public transport or are travelling in larger groups, the most efficient mode of travel is a private transfer. Search & book all airport transfers here.

The Italian train operators Trenitalia & SAD can efficiently get you to the Dolomites from Milan or Venice via Verona. From Verona one can approach the Dolomites either via the Venezia S.Lucia – Calalzo di Cadore line, or the Fortezza-Dobbiaco railway line. Two ski resorts (3 Peaks & Kronplatz) are directly accessible by train on the line north of Bolzano (Bozen). Two other ski resorts are very close to the train near Bressanone (Plose and Gitschberg Jochtal). Bus transfer services are available for the main resorts & local public buses or taxis will get you to the rest.

Train links from Munich & Innsbruck to the Dolomites via the Brenner Pass are excellent. Search & book train tickets here.

See the Hoe to Get to the Dolomites page for more information.

Why Ski or Snowboard in the Dolomites?

Whilst the region does not boast the highest mountains or the largest number of glaciers, the Dolomites does offer some of the world's most spectacular & unique alpine environments, tonnes of sunshine, fabulous food & an awesome light show off the pale mountain backdrop throughout the day. The ski terrain on piste is perfectly suited for families, intermediate skiers & snowboarders, lift assisted ski touring & other pleasures such as the local Trentino, Venetian and South Tyrolean cuisine & warm welcoming village atmospheres.

The interlinked Dolomiti Superski pass, Sella Ronda, Great War Circuit plus the massive investment in snow making capabilities demonstrates the passion and ingenious use of technology and cross-region co-operation to provide an excellent skiing & culinary experience to benefit both the tourists & the locals.

And just because you may know a little Italian language, be prepared to hear the local “Ladin” dialect and German. The main language spoken varies from valley to valley, adding to the sense of adventure. If you meet their passion with your passion for their mountains & culinary delights, you should be fine!!
