Sella Ronda

One of the best known ski tours in Europe, the Sella Ronda is a 26km circuit around the Sella Massif and can be skiied clockwise or anti-clockwise by intermediate skiers and above. Set amongst breathtaking scenery, the tour takes you through the four Ladin valleys of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Val di Fassa and Arabba.


The Marmolada is the highest mountain in the Dolomites reaching up to 3343m and is easily accessed from Canazei via Arabba. It takes about 40 minutes to ski to the base cable car from Arabba and it takes a further 2 to get to the top. The best known run is the Bellunese from Punta Rocca at 3300m down to Malga Ciapela, a vertical drop of 1800m and 12km long - truly amazing and stunning scenery all the way - one of the best 1 day ski tours on offer.
