Arabba, a complete change of scenery
Surrounded by the most beautiful Dolomite peaks, the ski area around the resort of Arabba extends to the base of the Marmolada Glacier (3,342 m) – the region’s highest peak – in an extraordinarily beautiful setting.
Dolomiti Ski, an infinite ski terrain
The gorgeous environment in this region draws ski fans here every year to hurtle down the slopes of a great ski area boasting 60 km of pistes served by some 30 ski lifts. A 12 km long ski run from the Punta Rocce summit (3,270m) to Malga Ciapela will delight skiers who love wide open spaces in unspoilt natural surroundings. By combining the various Sella Ronda resorts into a wealth of skiing opportunities, you’ll never be bored in spite of the small size of the resort itself. Indeed, Arabba is connected to the 12 large ski resorts and skiing terrain of the Dolomiti Superski area thanks to advanced funicular technology and shuttles that allow you to explore the famous Sella massif, as well as the Marmolada Glacier (3,342 m) and even the nearby Porta Vescova mountain, whose slopes have been described by many as the most beautiful in the Dolomites!
