Situated around the highest peak of the Dolomiti Superski region, the Marmolada, Arabba is among the area’s best resorts for sustained snow conditions and breathtaking, high-alpine views. Arabba’s terrain is intimate—just 24 miles (40 kilometers)—but what it offers is steep and makes experts feel as if they have their own private playground. Once you’ve explored Arabba’s terrain, it’s easy to access the rest of the Dolomiti Superski’s 311 miles (500 kilometers) of skiing and the famed Sellaronda ski route.
The Sellaronda ski route
Arabba Marmolada provides some of the best access to the Sellaronda, a famous eight-hour, 49-mile (80-kilometer) ski route that circles the Sella mountain range via some of the interconnected ski resorts of the Dolomiti Superski region. During World War I, there was a lot of military activity around the Sellaronda, so historical enthusiasts should keep their eyes peeled for trenches, forts and other war-era clues.
