Beginners

The local skiing in Alleghe has a beginner area and there are several gentle blue pistes to practice on after the first few days.

Intermediate

The whole local ski area is geared towards intermediate skiers and if you like touring, the 24km Sella Ronda tour taking in resorts like Arabba, Selva and Canazei is probably one of the best days skiing you will ever do.

Advanced

For the advanced skier, there is not much on-piste local terrain to challenge you with most of the pistes suited to intermediates. The off-piste is far better with many back-country routes such as the trails around Col dei Baldi, Fertazza of Valgranda and Col of Grava.

For some challenging runs, head up to the Marmolada, the highest mountain in the Dolomites - one of the great runs is a decent down the Marmolada glacier into the hamlet of Sottoguda where you can visit the ice falls in the Nature Reserve.

Cross-country

The Alleghe ski area offers 40km of cross-country ski trails that cater for everyone, from occasional skiers to pros.

Snowboard

For snowboarders, there is a park featuring all the usual kickers and jumps.

Other ski holiday activities

If you want a break from skiing or the weather isn't that great, the area is teaming with things to see and do. A great day out is a trip to the Sottoguda Natural reserve. This is a 2 km canyon created by an earthquake and water erosion and in the winter, the water forms large ice falls used for ice climbing.

  • Snow shoeing trails
  • Night skiing
  • Tobogganing
  • Parapenting

Après-ski

For a small resort, the après-ski in Alleghe can be lively and there is a good party atmosphere with live bands in many of the bars both on and off the slopes. There is a good selection of cafes, bars, restaurants and a few shops. If you love skiing, a quiet drink, dinner then bed, this is the place to go.
