Why Go?

What to Expect

In contrast to many other ski tours in the Alps, where you have to earn your beautiful turns, the Dolomites Circuit is like a skiers’ playground. In a single day, you can pass through the 4 Ladin Valleys – Val Gardena, Val di Fassa, Alta Badia, and Arabba. Thanks to an intricate lift system, you can follow the route clockwise or counterclockwise and ski over 25 miles (16 miles on-piste) without ever removing your skis.

"From the valley floor the vistas are impressive enough, but it is only on exiting the top station that you appreciate the full drama of the Dolomites."

-Fraser Wilkin

If you’re looking for more of a challenge in the Dolomites region, you can head to Marmolada, the tallest mountain in the range at 10,950 feet. There, you can ski a 4,850-foot run down the Marmolada Glacier on the northern face of the mountain. You can also try the ‘Dolomite Haute Route,’ which is a 6-day traverse from Falcade to Cortina d’Ampezzo with incredible scenery, including views of the surrounding jagged peaks.
