On this incredible Ski Safari, you’ll explore a wide variety of the finest ski resorts of the Dolomiti Superski. From San Vigilio di Marebbe, Plan de Corones, Val Gardena, Rosengarten Latemar, Val di Fassa, San Pellegrino, Trevalli, Civetta, Cortina d’Ampezzo, and back to Alta Badia, you’ll have 6 full days of skiing to get to know these mountains well. And one of the beauties of skiing in the Dolomites is that you can ski from resort to resort, returning to a base camp hotel, or moving from rifugio-to-rifugio each night. And, on this exciting ski safari, you’ll do both!

 

Each evening you’ll experience the welcoming atmosphere of a rifugio – an alpine mountain inn set high atop the mountains with excellent views – and savor the excellent culture and cuisine unique to the region. Crossing from region to region – the South Tyrol, Badia, and Cortina – your taste buds will enjoy the unique combination of flavors resulting from the disparate Italian, Austrian, and Ladin cultures found in these valleys.

 

With lift-service pistes to help you move from resort to resort, and this much terrain, you may never ski the same run twice!

Day 2 ~ Kronplatz – Plan de Corones & Alta Badia Ski Resorts
For your first day in the Dolomites, you will enjoy the slopes of two adjacent ski areas: Kronplatz – Plan de Corones and Alta Badia.

Beginning in San Vigilio di Marebbe you’ll access the Kronplatz – Plan de Corones – the number one ski resort in the South Tyrol. Kronplatz is a popular destination for skiers, with its majestic 2,275-meter (7,464′) peak standing out from the surrounding mountains. On the top of a wooded area, along the south side of the Pusteria Valley, it offers a 360-degree panorama of the entire surroundings. 105 kilometers (65 miles) of pistes and 31 modern lifts, its slopes will take you towards Riscone (Brunico), San Vigilio di Marebbe, Valdaora, and Perca.

 

Next you’ll explore the ski resort of Alta Badia. Its location between 1,400 and 2,700 meters (4,593-8,858′) above sea level ensures optimal ski conditions throughout the winter, and offers breathtaking views of the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomites. Fast and comfortable ski lift connections, miles of wide, well-groomed slopes (130km / 81 miles), and the spaciousness of the ski area allow you to enjoy pleasant and safe skiing days. Charming mountain huts and first class mountain restaurants round out the appeal, making Alta Badia a ski area for connoisseurs.

Day 3 ~ Val Gardena Ski Resort

Beginning again today from San Vigilio di Marebbe, ski to Piculin from where you’ll take the ski-bus to Alta Badia. From here, ski to Val Gardena in the area of the Seceda (over Santa Cristina). Then, ski back to Passo Sella where you can have lunch at Rifugio Emilio Comici, famous for its fish dishes. From the start, quality was the main objective of this rifugio, and the excitement about the culinary highlights have made the hut into what is today: a rifugio for the sophisticated.

After lunch, ski around the area and then to your rifugio for the night, located in a beautiful panoramic position on the Col Rodella at 2,440 meters (8,005′) in the heart of the Fassa Valley. Here you can admire one of the most wonderful landscapes of the Dolomite arc, dominated by the imposing mass of the Sassolungo.

The picturesque traditional mountain villages, and five unmistakable ski zones of the Latemar Ski Center (Obereggen, Pampeago and Predazzo, the Alpe Cermis/Cavalese, Alpe Lusia/Bellamonte, Oclini/Lavazè, as well as the Rolle-pass) with more than 100 kilometers (62 miles) of slopes are all perfectly snuggled into the panorama, calling you to try the superb, sun-kissed gentle downhill slopes. And in the distance, you’ll enjoy the views of Marmolada, the Sella Group, and the Pale di San Martino, a breathtaking mountain landscape, particularly at sunset when the “Monte Pallidi” dress in fiery red.

From Passo San Pellegrino, ski to Falcade, and transfer to Alleghe. From here you’ll ski in the Civetta ski area, in the heart of the Veneto Dolomites, which offers a wide range of slopes (80km / 50 miles) and attracts skiers of all levels.

 

Surrounded by plenty of uncontaminated views and majestic peaks, the valleys of Alleghe, Selva di Cadore, Zoldo, and Palafavera of Monte Civetta are rich in history and tradition. This area became famous during the 19th century, during the final century of the Venetian Doges, when the first winter guests discovered the imposing beauty and timeless charm of Monte Civetta and in particular Monte Pelmo – known as “God’s Throne.”

You will get to know all of its slopes, from the famous Olimpica (where the men’s Olympic downhill events were held, and for many years the stage of the Women’s World Cup); to the superb

Canalone (or Canyon in English, where the women’s downhill Olympic events took place); to the beautiful, but more tranquil, piste leading to Pomedes, where you can stop for lunch at Rifugio Pomedes. In the afternoon, enjoy the final runs of your trip as you ski back to Alta Badia.
