Dolomiti Superski photogallery - by L.Lorenzini“There’s nothing as exciting as reality”, goes the slogan of the Dolomites Superski pass. We tried a full immersion in the Superski world for a few days, and the excitement did in fact exceed our expectations.

1,220 km of runs and 450 lifts: the Dolomites Superski is a skiing universe, which with a single ticket gives access to 12 different ski areas.

We were most struck by the idea of being able to cross an entire region on skis. In one day, starting from Ortisei in the Gardena Valley (Val Gardena), we went up the mountains above the famed resort of Cortina, coming down again to Gardena – more than 100 km as the crow flies. We crossed the Gardena Pass and reached Corvara in the high Badia Valley; we then went high again to the Pralongià area and skied down again to Colfosco; then up again to the Falzarego Pass at the top of the high Ampezza valley. From here you take the Lagazuoi funicular to the top of the mountain, then back down again to Colfosco.

The world’s number one skiing area includes many famous places, several of which are connected by fast, safe and state of the art lifts, and of course by vast downhill runs. This dense network means that you can ski over a great variety of routes, with the chance to do real ski touring.

Just think – in the morning you can leave from Canazei in Val di Fassa, and ski for kilometres as far as Arabba on snow that has been groomed to perfection. From here you can go up to an altitude of over 3,000 metres on the Marmolada range, gliding down to the valley to be lifted up to Campolongo; and off again at full tilt towards the picturesque Val Badia. La Villa awaits you with the difficult run of Gran Risa, one for the champions, where Tomba, Blardone and Simoncelli have won races. And if you still have it in you, once you’ve got to Corvara, a fast lift will take you to the Gardena Pass, from where you can glide down again to Selva Gardena on the marvellous Danter Cepies run. Into the Valley of the sculptors, and don’t miss a descent on the Saslong run, where every year world champion skiers fight it out for the freestyle title.

…and now it’s time to go home, when the Dolomites begin to take on a red hue. From the bottom of the Garden Valley, up we go to the Sella Pass, to ski gently back to Canazei, our departure and arrival point on an unforgettable day on the Superski slopes of the Dolomites.
