Luxury ski holidays in the Dolomites

* The most stunning scenery in the Alps...

* Vast networks of connected pistes...
* Characterful villagey resorts...

* The world's best snow-making...

 

For many, the Dolomites are simply the most stunning mountains on earth. Add to that a vast array of interconnected slopes, the world's best snow-making (guaranteeing excellent piste coverage in even the leanest of times) and an array of captivating village bases, it's no wonder that people come back to this region year after year.

 

Skiing in the Dolomites is spread across a sizeable geographical area. In the far west are the Brenta Dolomites, whose principal resort is Madonna di Campiglio in the Trentino region, completely separate from the better known Dolomiti Superski resorts further east.

 

At the easternmost edge of the Dolomites lies world-famous Cortina d'Ampezzo, part of the Dolomiti Superski lift pass arrangement. To its west, and also part of the Dolomiti Superski, is the vast network of connected resorts and pistes that make up, or are connected to, the Sella Ronda. These include the Val Gardena resorts of Selva and Ortisei (just above which sits the high altitude Alpe di Siusi plateau), the Alta Badia resorts of Colfosco, Corvara and San Cassiano and in the more Italian-influenced Veneto,  Arabba.

Skiing in the Dolomites

While the Dolomites are an intermediate's paradise, with seemingly unlimited runs and jaw-dropping scenery, the region offers a huge amount of terrain for all levels.

 

Advanced skiers will find the toughest pistes above Arabba and Selva, the latter being home to the world-famous Saslong world-cup downhill. 

 

Nervous skiers will take particular delight in the wide easy cruising offered by Madonna di Campiglio and the Alta Badia (ColfoscoCorvara and San Cassiano).

 

Beginners are also well catered for, with ample nursery slopes in all resorts, and plenty of long easy runs to progress to.

Ski resorts in the Dolomites

All of our Dolomite resorts are real, lived-in towns and villages, although they vary widely in character.

 

The largest and most upmarket of the resorts we offer is Cortina d'Ampezzo. It is also the best resort for non-skiers, with a good variety of shops, bars and restaurants. The smaller and more family-orientated Madonna di Campiglio, in the Brenta Dolomites, also attracts a well-heeled Italian clientele.

 

Perhaps the most charming of our Dolomite resorts is Ortisei, in the Val Gardena, with lots of interesting boutiques lining its pedestrianised centre. Above the village sits the stunning Alpe di Siusi area - not a resort as such, but an Alpine meadow with a scattering of hotels in what is perhaps the most beautiful setting we have ever come across.

 

Nearby Selva di Val Gardena has the liveliest nightlife of the resorts we offer, but is also a great all-rounder and caters well for families.

 

At the eastern end of the Alta Badia is the quietly attractive village of San Cassiano, ideal for those looking for a bit of seclusion. Further west, Colfosco is a pretty but low-key traditional Süd-Tirolean village set beneath the imposing Gruppo Sella massif. Just below Colfosco sits Corvara, a larger but still family-orientated village, with its good selection of upmarket hotels.

 

A few miles from Corvara, in the Veneto region, is the unassuming village of Arabba, one of the best placed resorts for exploring the Super-Dolomiti region as a whole.
