Overview

Arabba: the place to be for skiing enthusiasts

A perfect snow park for the whole family, with slopes of all levels of difficulty and magical views of the Marmolada mountain, Arabba is an ideal holiday destination for both long-term skiing enthusiasts and fans of snow and winter sports alike.

This resort in the Veneto region, in the province of Belluno, lies at the heart of the Dolomiti Superski, the largest ski area in the world.

 

Arabba in numbers

63 kilometres of slopes for skiing and snowboarding, 26 ski lifts, 1 snow park with 3 lines, 15 kilometres for cross-country skiing. And as if that weren’t enough, you can climb the 3,343-metre Marmolada mountain to take in all its majestic wonder.

Still left wanting more? In that case, why not treat yourself to taking on the 12 kilometres of the “Bellunese”, the longest slope Dolomiti Superski has to offer?

 

Thrilling hikes and slopes with something for everyone

Located at an altitude of between 1,446 and 3,269 metres, every ski run is a unique thrill, guaranteed throughout the whole season.

An experience certainly not to be missed is the Great War Ski Tour, along a route dotted with archaeological sites, trenches and forts relating to the First World War. Together with the Marmolada Glacier, this is one of the fascinating places that will help make this particular skiing holiday so delightfully unique.

Anyone who wants to avoid overly strenuous hikes will simply love taking part in a snowshoe hike, experiencing a few hours immersed in nature.

 

Away from the crowds

One of the best things about Arabba is how far from the beaten tourist path it is. The highest town among those encompassing the Sella Group massif, it boasts challenging “black slopes”, which at times you may find you have entirely to yourself.

 

An overview of the slopes and the territory

Arabba is connected with Malga Ciapela-Marmolada on one side and with the main resorts of Sellaronda, Alta Badia and Canazei on the other.

The lifts are all comfortable and offer spectacular panoramas, while the slopes are the perfect place to enjoy a spot of alpine skiing, presenting beautiful views of the Sella and Marmolada mountains.

If you are looking for breathtaking descents through forests and cliffs, you have to check out Porta Vescovo.

For freerider skiers, the area offers routes of varying difficulties. More experienced skiers, accompanied by an expert guide, can take on the steep pistes that seem to carve out the walls of the Dolomites. Just as fantastic are the guided alpine skiing, snowshoeing and ice climbing tours.

 

One last thing to squeeze in!

We recommend you take a moment during your holiday to set aside your skis and boots and visit the traditional village of Sottoguda (in the municipality of Rocca Pietore), considered one of the most beautiful in Italy. The old village, with its centuries-old rural architecture surrounded by nature, is a sight to behold at any time of day and looks like a small nativity scene at dusk.
