The Dolomites (i Dolomiti) is the world’s largest interconnected ski area. In fact, the number of lifts and the ability to go from valley to valley is almost as breathtaking as the physical beauty of the mountains.
On June 26, 2009, The Dolomites mountains were placed on the prestigious UNESCO list of Natural World Hertiage Sites. This confirms the Dolomites’ status as one of the world’s most beautiful and unique natural wonders.
Nowhere else in the world do you have 450 lifts at your disposal on a single lift ticket, and if the weather closes in you will never end up sitting on a small exposed chair lift. This is also the most modern network of gondolas and covered chairs that you will find anywhere.
Over 1,100 kilometres of runs are groomed every night, leaving perfect corduroy lines on the first runs. You can enjoy 50 kilometres of comfortable fast skiing each day, find some deeper snow to practice your powder turns, or even challenge your nerve on the run named after the multiple Olympic gold-medallist, Alberto Tomba.
The Dolomites cater to all levels of skier, from the most experienced to beginners, with English-speaking instructors in the ski schools. And being Italy, it is the perfect place for a family holiday. Italians love children and yours will feel at home with the food and child friendly service.
Each lift ticket is has it’s own identity- the micro chip inside the ticket will track everywhere you have been, lift to lift, day by day. It will give you the vertical distance and an estimation of the length of runs. You can login to the Dolomiti Superski site to see the data logged by your ticket.
