The world famous Sellaronda is a ‘circular’ ski tour route located within the Dolomiti Super Ski area in north-eastern Italy. The scenic views when skiing are consistently breath-taking, so much so that the Dolomite mountain range are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If ‘the views’ are on your ski holiday agenda, there may well be no comparison to a trip around the Sellaronda. A collection of mountain towns and villages branch out around the Sella massif, providing 26kms of downhill runs. In a day you can visit the four Ladin Valleys: Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Val di Fassa and Arabba. But with the uniquely high standard of dining on offer throughout the area it’s much more pleasant to take your time and ski-tour from bistro to bistro. A truly unique skiing experience, the Sellaronda is an adventure on the palette as much as the thighs! But with access to the entire 1220km of the Dolomiti Super Ski area (the world’s biggest) from Selva Val Gardena, Corvara and Arabba, your appetite for ski kilometres can be well and truly met.
Ski Resorts in the Sellaronda
Selva di Val Gardena
Exuding the charms of the south Tirol, including the isolated Ladin dialect, a ski holiday to Selva di Val Gardena is plentiful in everything you’re looking for from a ski holiday. Sitting at 1565m, the resort elevation is similar to its nearby big-name Austrian neighbours but with a variety of skiing including tree-lined runs, open alpine and of course access to the majestic Sellaronda, it’s much more than meets the eye.

Corvara & Colfosco
Two small conjoined resorts (Corvara being the larger) located on a sunny plateau where the wide Alta Badia valley meets the Sellaronda circuit. Both featuring challenging skiing for beginners and intermediates, Colfosco is the quainter and relaxed of the two villages whereas Corvara possesses a good selection of bars and restaurants mostly set around a central square, with a reputation for gourmet dining.

A small village located between the Gruppo del Sella and the glacial Marmolada massif, Arabba is a picturesque town with charming Tyrolean wood buildings and accommodation with very convenient locations for the lifts. Arguably the resort with the most challenging skiing, access to the Sellaronda is quick and easy. This traditional Ladin ski village oozes Italian ski heritage and is well worth a visit.
