Ski holidays in Arabba

Italian hospitality and some challenging slopes amidst the stunning Dolomites

Ski Holidays in Arabba

Of the resorts that make up the celebrated Sellaronda circuit, Arabba has some of the most interesting slopes, and is a real skiers’ holiday base. It boasts excellent, challenging pistes, and the stunning slopes of the mighty Marmolada glacier are within easy reach. The highly recommended Hidden Valley is close by too. Part of the spectacular Dolomiti Superski area, the modern lift system ensures Arabba links easily to the Sella Ronda, with Canazei in the Val di Fassa to the West, and Corvara in the sunny Alta Badia ski area to the North. This compact, friendly village has a natural ice skating rink and a small selection of shops, bars, restaurants and pizzerias. Après-ski is low key and relaxed, the skiing anything but! The fast 'Ornella' run down to Pescoi is one of the big thrills for local skiers – and one of the biggest local challenges.
