Ski mountaineering in the Dolomites is usually a demanding enterprise and certainly not for beginners. But the Dolomites offer a ski touring experience with a difference that everyone can enjoy – the famous Sella Ronda, a circular ski route leading round the mighty Sella massif and offering 26 km of downhill trails in a single day. The ascents are no problem – with modern lifts and cableways and the convenience of the Skipass Dolomiti Superski .
The experts can even add a few more kilometres to the Sella Ronda (perhaps the demanding Porta Vescovo trail from Arabba).
The round trip of the Sella Ronda should be planned properly. It takes a good six hours. So be sure to set off early in the morning. And make sure you get to the last lift in time in the afternoon. The trails are officially closed after 5 p.m. You can ski the Sella Ronda clockwise or anticlockwise. An accurate map is available at the Tourist Offices.
A similar route is the Gherdëina Skiring. Although not so famous, it is just as beautiful and varied. And it is the best way of discovering the cosy ski lodges in Val Gardena. The route of the Gherdëina Skiring takes you to Alpe Seceda, Col Raiser, the Saslonch trail, Piz Sella and Dantercëpies.
