High in the Dolomites

The diary of a skier could not be complete without an entry for the amazing Sella Ronda, the best known ski tour of the Alps. It’s a panoramic tour of 40 km (26 km of trails). It’s the circuit of the Sella mountain group, going over 4 passes: Pordoi, Sella, Gardena and Campolongo, and going through the 4 Ladin valleys: Fassa (Trentino), Gardena (South Tyrol), Badia (South Tyrol) and Arabba (Veneto). A carousel of slopes, medium difficulty, with occasional options for more advanced runs, all connected by modern ski lifts. The tour can be comfortably completed in 5-6 hours, even by the less experienced skier.

Valid skipass: Dolomiti Superski


Sella Ronda - Orange


Clockwise circuit (orange signs)

If you set off from the centre of Canazei, take the "Belvedere" cabin lift to Pecol. From here you can either go up to Col dei Rossi (2.382 m, splendid panorama) or you can get the cabinway "Toé", which arrives a little lower than the cable car. From here you can begin the circuit in both directions.

If you have decided to follow the orange route, now ski down from Belvedere to Pian de Frataces. Here you take the "Pradel" cableway to Col Rodella. Now ski down to Sella Pass and on to Plan de Gralba. Keep going downhill as far as Selva di Val Gardena, and take the "Costabella" chairlift, which will transport you to the "Dantercepies" lift, and on to Gardena Pass. From the pass there is a long, sunny trail as far as Colfosco, then the "Borest" lift will take you to Corvara. Next you need to climb up to Piz Boè Refuge by way of the cabin lift, and then ski down to the third pass, Campolongo Pass. Next there is a chair lift which takes you to "Bec de Roces", and then you can enjoy 2 km of slopes right down to Arabba. Take the lift Arabba Fly to cross the village. To reach the final pass, Pordoi Pass, you take the cabin lift (DMC Europa I and DMC Europa II) to Porta Vescovo (as alternative, cabin lift "Portados" + chair lift "Carpazza"), and then drop down 630 metres on the red runs "Salere" and "Alpenrose". When you reach "Pont de Vauz" take the chair lifts "Fodom" and then "Lezuo", which will bring you back to Belvedere. To get back to the village you can use the cableway from "Pecol", or if you still feel like skiing, take the "Del Bosco" trail, setting off in the direction of Pian de Frataces/Lupo Bianco (the turning for Canazei is just above this area).

Setting off from Campitello di Fassa, you should take the cable car from village up to Col Rodella at 2,485 m, and follow the directions from there.

Skitour Panoramavariant of Sellaronda, starting point from Vigo or Pozza di Fassa. Direct connection between Buffaure-Ciampac and Belvedere-Col Rodella-Passo Pordoi ski areas. 

It’s particularly important to reach the last pass by 3.30 p.m., in order to be back in time. If the weather is bad (heavy snow or strong wind) some lifts may be forced to close.


Sella Ronda - Green


Anti-clockwise circuit (green signs)

If you set off from the centre of Canazei, take the "Belvedere" cabin lift to Pecol. From here you can either go up to Col dei Rossi (2,382 m, splendid panorama) or you can get the cabinway "Toé", which arrives a little lower than the cable car. From here you can begin the circuit in both directions.

If you have chosen the green route, ski down to the 6 seater chair lift "Sass Becé". From the top of this lift there is a long descent to Arabba (in "Pont de Vauz" take the chair lift "Alpenrose"). When you reach the village, take "Arabba Fly", "Burz" and "Bec de Roces" chair lifts, then ski towards Campolongo Pass. After the pass, the chair lift "Costoratta" takes you to up towards the Piz Boè Refuge, after which there is a long run down to Corvara. Next there are 6 scenic lifts ("Borest", "Sodlisia", "Plans", "Frara", "Val Setus" and "Cir") ride up at Gardena Pass. Now there is a choice of 2 runs which both bring you down to Selva di Val Gardena. To complete the circuit you now have to reach the top of "Ciampinoi" mountain, by way of the cabin lift of the same name. From here head for Plan de Gralba, and then up to "Piz Seteur". After a short descent take the chair lift up, then ski through the splendid "Città dei Sassi" (City of stones), at the foot of the Sassolungo mountain. When you reach Sella Pass, take the chair lift "Sass Levante" and then ski down the long Val Salei as far as Pian de Frataces/Lupo Bianco. Here the cabin lift "Gherdecia" will take you back to Belvedere.

Setting off from Campitello di Fassa, you should take the cable car from village up to Col Rodella at 2,485 m, and follow the directions from there.

Ski tour map

Think of spending a whole day on the slopes, without ever taking off your skis, without ever skiing the same run twice, it’s a dream come true. The whole day is spent above 2.000m, where the views of the splendid Dolomites (now a Unesco Heritage Site) are truly breathtaking. You can begin the tour from any of the 4 valleys. The important thing is to set off no later than 10.00 a.m. From the Fassa valley there is a choice of starting points: Canazei-Belvedere or Campitello-Col Rodella. You can make the circuit in either direction, and colour coded signposts will guide you round, orange for clockwise, and green for anti-clockwise.

It’s particularly important to reach the last pass by 3.30 p.m., in order to be back in time. If the weather is bad (heavy snow or strong wind) some lifts may be forced to close.
