This is European skiing at its finest, and Collett’s are ‘the experts’ when it comes to skiing this fabulous region, having taken holiday makers to the Dolomites since 1998.

Dolomiti Superski

With 1250kms of pistes, Dolomiti Superski is a vast winter paradise, rich in mindboggling mountain scenery. With the renowned Sellaronda ski circuit at its heart, Dolomiti Superski combines 12 sublime ski valleys, each with their own popular resorts. The network lies in the South Tyrol, Veneto and Trentino, giving it a vibrant mix of the Germanic and Latin cultures. Here, skiers are treated to well-groomed runs of all grades and an ultra-modern lift system that makes queueing minimal; even rare. Whatever your ability, a Dolomiti Superski holiday provides for everyone, from the ambitious skier eager to clock up the miles on steeper descents in each area; to the leisurely cruiser, who blissfully drinks in the staggering landscapes on rambling tree-lined blue runs, never too far from a capuccino or gluhwein.

This is the very best of European skiing. You can ski the Sellaronda clockwise or anti-clockwise from start to finish. Or you can use it like an orbital highway, dropping into outstanding ski areas, where there is so much to explore. Interspersed throughout the Dolomites, charming rifugios with panoramic sun terraces serve fabulous food and drink at fair and affordable prices, so that lunch is an upbeat focal point of each and every day. Our ski holidays in Arabba and Corvara come complete with a 6 day ski-plan to get the very best out of your week, or our limited availability Ski Safari is a fully guided ski holiday which takes in all of the very best skiing in the area.

Finally, Dolomiti Superski is a technological leader and you will appreciate this as soon as you start using its impressive lift infrastructure. You can also download the app and keep track of family and friends, whilst recording your own distance, speed, and choice of runs. Quite simply, there’s a lot of fun and awe to be had skiing in the Dolomites.


At 1568m Corvara is the principal village of the Alta Badia, one of the prettiest valleys in the Dolomites. Like Arabba, it sits right on the Sellaronda (linked by San Cassiano) and provides brilliantly for skiers of all abilities, whichever direction you set off in.

Corvara is a gateway to the many treasures of the Alta Badia, such as:

  • The Gran Risa (Men’s World Cup GS)
  • The renowned Hidden Valley
  • The Colfosco Bowl
  • It’s a neighbour of Arabba (with its dramatic north-facing slopes) and, in the other direction, the celebrated Val Gardena. (If you want to stay in Arabba – you can join us there!)

As a resort, Corvara is highly sought-after and attractive. Without being exclusive, it radiates stylishness and a certain affluence. Interspersed amongst attractive chalets and chic hotels, there are designer shops, bars and cafes, which generate a delightful atmosphere in the early evening.

Corvara is dominated by Sassongher (2456m), the signature peak of the village (which is not skiable). To the south, you won’t fail to be captivated by the breathtaking northern flanks of the monumental Sella – the 28km circumnavigation of which is the Sellaronda. Make sure you do it clockwise and anti-clockwise! The launchpad for a day on the Sellaronda is the main gondola station near the heart of the village and from here you’ll be whisked upward into stunning winter landscapes to embark on ski tours of a lifetime.


Arabba is the highest resort on the Sellaronda and it offers an intimate and vibrant mountain-village feel. At 1650m, it is nestled under an exciting series of steep north-facing slopes, which makes it one of the best and most snow-sure ski resorts in the Dolomites. Italian in character (as opposed to the more Germanic feel of neighbouring Corvara), the village is towered over by the Sella massif on one side and the range’s highest mountain (the Marmolada 3313m) on the other. Indeed, Arabba is the gateway to skiing from the Marmolada’s summit on a 12km descent that will surely enthral ski adventure seekers.

As for the village, with its alpine chalets and hotels huddled around a picturesque church, it is genuinely enchanting. After 8pm it is quite quiet with only a handful of bars to choose from, but when skiers return from their adventures mid/late afternoon, there is a pleasant apres-ski buzz, either in piste-side bars or at Bar Peter opposite the church.

The village enjoys all the essential amenities that make it an accomplished ski holiday destination. Everything is within easy walking distance of our featured accommodation. The pistes and ski lifts are even nearer, so Collett’s guests in Arabba can more or less look forward to doorstep skiing. Over the years we have seen many beginners thrive in Arabba, graduating from the village nursery slopes to the gorgeous runs above the village near the Pordoi Pass. That said, this exquisite resort excels for intermediate and advanced skiers, tempted by the tantalising ski opportunities that await them in a place that connects so efficiently with renowned ski areas such as the Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Val di Fassa and much more.

For a 7 night stay, we recommend the full-area, 6-Day Dolomiti Superski Liftpass – unless you are a beginner. Discounts apply for online bookings as well as for Juniors and Senior Citizens.

For details of costs and how to book, go to the Dolomiti Superski website here. Collect your ski pass in resort at your leisure from the pick-up boxes; this is easy to do and your Collett’s online handbook includes a village map indicating collection points for pre-booked ski passes.

Booking your equipment online in advance of your holiday is now the norm and is generally 10% cheaper.
Visit Arabba Ski School for more details and to pre-book your equipment. The Ski Hire shop is in the basement of the Ski School office.

We recommend 3 suppliers in Corvara, although there are several others.

Ski Service Boè
This is located under the village’s main ski lift station and offers overnight storage of skis and boots – and daytime storage of your comfy shoes.
This is of particular value to guests staying at Chalet Roch, as it means you can do the 10-minute walk to (and from) your accommodation in comfy shoes without having to carry skis and poles.
The downside is that you cannot book online – and you will need to take your ID with you for ski hire.
So, if pre-booking online is your preference, two alternative options are:

Corvara Ski School
This is conveniently located in village centre and offer discounts if you book lessons and equipment together.

Sport Kostner Rent 
This is located in the village centre and it offers an online service with a 10% discount.

General Notes
Ski hire starts from around €90 for 6 days, depending on the category of skis you choose, whilst boots will cost you about €40 for 6 days.
Upgrade options are generally good. Expect to pay around €150 for a good set of intermediate/advanced skis, with boots.
For snowboard and boots, you can expect to pay about €135 for 6 days.
Helmets are highly recommended for all skiers and compulsory in Italy for all Under 14’s (and are free to hire). Adults will pay approx. €35 for 6 days helmet hire.

Tip: Start this process knowing your height and weight in kgs!… and your European shoe size.

Private Lessons & Ski School
Book any ski tuition (Private or Group) as soon as you know your requirements, ideally, well before your holiday starts.

Group Tuition (or Ski School) is comprised of 4 or 5 day group lessons.
The typical package is 4 mornings (roughly 10.00 to 12.30 Mon-Thur) plus a day excursion (10.00 to 16.00) on Friday.
Group tuition starts at about €230 per person.

Private Tuition can be booked by the hour.
Book in advance of your stay and maximise the chances of being allocated to a good English speaker.
Private Tuition costs between €40 – €70 per hour (depending on the time of day and the season).
Additional people can be added to a private lesson, usually at an extra €10-€15 per person per hour.
