Trip Description - The Super Dolimiti is the largest interconnected ski area in the world! It has more than 470 modern ski lifts. That is over 100 lifts larger than all the resorts in Colorado and Utah combined! You can ski mountain to mountain and village to village on miles of well groomed and well marked trails. Our hotel is located in the Alta Badia, which is in the heart of this magnificent ski area. Entry level skiers can spend all day in the Alta Badia on dozens of interconnected gentle runs including the 5 ½ mile run from Pralongia down to the town of Armentarola, where a shuttle bus is taken to the top of Falzarego Pass. There, a cable car takes you up another 2000 vertical feet to the top of Mt. Lagazuo from which you ski down over 4000 vertical feet to Scutetoni for an Italian barbecue. From there, you can ski a short distance where a horse drawn sleigh pulls you back to where you can finally ski back to your hotel. Intermediates can also enjoy Sellaronda, a ski trip where you follow the signs and ski all the way around the Sella Mt. Group and then back to the hotel. It involves 16 lifts, 5 villages, 4 mountain passes and 28 miles of unbelievable views and interesting sights. For the Advanced and Expert skiers with a lot of endurance, Dennis will take you to ski Marmalada, the glacier. This involves 27 lifts, 4 villages and 53 miles of distance on skis and lifts. After reaching the town of Malga Ciapela, you ride 3 cable cars and one elevator to "the top of the world," you ski down 6000 vertical ft. and then back to our village! This ski area is absolutely as good as skiing gets and can be enjoyed by all ability levels.
Other diversions include tons of shopping, the nearby village of Cortina, site of the 1956 Winter Olympics and shooting location of "For Your Eyes Only." Venice is close enough for a day trip and may be worth taking a day off from skiing to see.
