Dolomiti Superski offers the largest fully interchangabable lift ticket in the world, spanning 12 major sections. In the South Tyrol section of the area (which was once part of Austria), most places have two names – a German language name and an Italian one. In total, this massive area covers 50 ski resorts, with about 1,200 km of pistes and well over 400 lifts.

There is plenty of fun to be had in the mountains, but if you want an unforgettable dream holiday, choose Dolomiti Superski: a mountain of wonder in the heart of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, which are located in the north-eastern part of Italy. Magnificent views around, 450 uphill facilities, 1,200 km of perfect slopes, prepared daily, 8 days of sunshine out of every 10, and for food lovers, gastronomic delights from five different cultures and traditions of fine cuisine: Tyrolean, Trentino, Venetian, Ladine and Mediterranean. You couldn’t find a more intense way to spend the winter. A mountain of wonder, dreamed of by many from the summer onwards.

The famous architect Le Corbusier once stated enthusiastically “They are the most beautiful architectural construction in the world”. The climber Emil Zsigmondy defined them as “a precious stone set in the Alpine landscape” and Reinhold Messner simply said, “The Dolomites are not the highest mountains in the world, but they are the most beautiful.” Even UNESCO is of the same opinion, and included them among the 207 World Natural Heritage Sites worldwide in June 2009.

The Dolomites are in fact protected with 7 natural parks covering 1/3 of the whole territory. The alternating soft slopes and “malghe” (traditional mountain farmhouses) dominated by steep limestone masses is a unique, incomparable view. Rocks with bizarre fissures reaching up to 3,342 m into the skies, transforming every ski run that passes through the terraced slopes into a panoramic descent. So, a winter paradise, formed 250 million years ago from the primordial sea. At that time, the highest and most famous peaks (Marmolada, Sassolungo, Civetta, Pale di San Martino, Rosengarten, Sciliar, Tofane and the Three Peaks of Lavaredo) were probably atolls. Then, in 1789 they took the name of the geologist Déodat de Dolomieu, who discovered their particular chemical composition. We might therefore say that, as they let their skis and snowboards slide smoothly along the splendid snowy world of Dolomiti Superski, skiers from around the world are in fact exploring a barrier reef. A barrier reef that salutes its guests every evening with a magnificent show of nature, when the “pale mountains” and their peaks dress in fiery red, turning to dark violet. A colour show called “Enrosadira”, which due to the special qualities of the dolomitic rocks can be seen only in these mountains. The most beautiful performances are given on clear winter evenings, on the Rosengarten, the Croda Rossa, the Sella, the Fanes and the Tofana. A unique moment, not to be missed, that warms any heart.
The Dolomites have clocked up 100 years of skiing tradition. As early as 1895 the first skiers could be seen on the snowy slopes of the Val Gardena and Cortina. In 1912 a young man from Merano, Peter Böttl, took two days to ski round the Sella massif, creating the Sellaronda race. The first giant slalom was held in 1935 on the Marmolada. But in those days, the competitors had to reach the top of the Queen of the Dolomites (3,342 m) on foot. In 1956 with the winter Olympics held in Cortina d’Ampezzo, this skiing region saw world fame. Still today, Alta Badia, Val Gardena and Cortina d’Ampezzo host spectacular World Cup ski tournaments, which attract many visitors from all over the world every year.

Small villages, home to mountain shepherds, have roots that date back to the Bronze Age. Some finds prove that even at that time the first settlements were to be found in the valleys. A historical place, that has seen three different cultures live peacefully side by side: the Ladines, the Italians and the Germans. The Ladines, descendants of the Raets, have been living in the dolomite-valleys for almost 2000 years.

Thanks to the isolated position of their villages, it has been possible to maintain languages, customs and traditions alive up to our times. In fact, 25,000 Dolomite Ladines still speak Ladine today, a language with roots that lie in popular Latin. Three cultures that explain the multiplicity and wealth of this mountain region, that has no equals around the world.

And on the most beautiful mountains in the world, people do not just ski: it is possible to take a veritable journey on skis. Every day, new landscapes to be discovered, 1,200 km of slopes to be enjoyed, divided into 12 unmistakeable skiing areas, composed of 45 small and suggestive mountain villages: all within easy reach, with just one ski pass, the Dolomiti Superskipass. Every night, 300 snow cats work to prepare perfect trails, and 450 most modern ski lifts help skiers to follow ski itineraries on foot, including the legendary Sellaronda, in the heart of the Dolomiti Superski zone, and to reach other ski districts and areas.

Skiers and snowboarders of any level will not be disappointed on these world-famous slopes, including the Bellunese which starts at the peak of the Marmolada, the Lagazuoi, the Tognola Uno trail, the Saslonch, the Gran Risa, the Olimpia on the Tofana, the Silvester, the Trametsch trail and other wonderful slopes for snow lovers. In fact, on average in the Dolomiti Superski district skiers use the same ski lift only 1.34 times a day. The Sella, the Latemar, the Civetta and the Schlern will always call you to stop for a breathtaking panoramic break. The mountain heights, from 1,550 to 3,342 m, as well as the 1,100 km of slopes equipped with snowmaking systems, make for perfect skiing practically 100% of the time. In addition, the sun shines 8 days out of 10. Perfect snow, great sun, fabulous slopes and views, to satisfy all demands for a fun-packed winter holiday.
