For skiing and snowboarding locally there are 63 km of slopes available, 26 lifts and skiing between the elevations of 1,446 and 3,269m. Not enough for me you may say, until you add in the additional 1150km of connected slopes incorporated in the Sella Ronda! In around 5 to 6 hours, this panoramic circuit takes you through the ski regions of Alta Badia, Gröden (Val Gardena) and Val di Fassa (Fassatal). The Sella Ronda can be skied in two different directions - the higher and more challenging orange tour goes in a clockwise direction, while the green tour follows an anti-clockwise direction. If you’ve not done it before and like the idea of getting some ski miles under your belt, you’ll be keen to try the celebrated Sella Ronda circular tour. The 25 mile tour (16 miles of actual skiing) can be achieved fairly easily in a day.
For the intermediates there are a variety of slopes with mainly blue and red runs on the Porta Vescovo and the Passo Pordoi. Beyond Arabba’s main ski area, the Sella Ronda and the Alta Badia areas provide extensive skiing, while advanced skiers will find some exciting and challenging runs as well as some testing skiing on the Marmolada Glacier. Snowboarders can find some varied runs around the resort plus a snowpark and half pipe at Passo Pordoi.
