Skiing in Arabba until 25 April!

08 March 2023

In Arabba you can ski beyond the closing date of the lifts of most of the stations in the Alps. Until 25 April, the lifts in the Porta Vescovo area in Arabba and the Gorza Refuge remain open. This is due to the northern exposure, which guarantees excellent snow quality.

At Porta Vescovo the panorama is unique: the view sweeps from the Marmolada to Arabba to the Sella massif. The ski area boasts slopes of all difficulties, from beginners to experts, including the legendary Fodoma with three walls and slopes of up to 56%. Another slope that is well worth a visit is the 3-km-long Sourasass with an altitude difference of 750 metres. On the opposite side of Porta Vescovo, there is the black Burz slope with a maximum gradient of 57%. Easy to reach on skis from Arabba, the Bellunese slope, 12 km long with a difference in altitude of 1800 metres, is suitable for everyone and crosses the Marmolada glacier.

Arabba is also at the centre of the two Dolomiti Superski ski carousels: the Sellaronda, also known as the Giro dei quattro passi (Four Passes Tour), which allows skiers to ski 26 km of slopes around the Sella massif, and the Giro della Grande Guerra (Great War Tour), which retraces the Dolomite front on which the Italian Alpine troops on one side and the Austrian and German Kaiserjäger on the other faced off between 1915 and 1917.
