Dolomiti Superski is the best way to enjoy skiing in the Dolomites thanks to its 1.200 kilometers of slopes distributed in the best ski resorts of South Tyrol, Trentino and Veneto alpine regions.
Here alpine skiing has been practiced since the 30s and it boomed thanks to the 1956 Cortina d'Ampezzo Winter Olympic Games. This long history has created an incredible know-how in the area. It contributes to make Dolomiti Superski the most wished on-piste ski tour of the world, together with top acccommodation and food & beverage services, brand new lifts and the unique beauty of Dolomite mountains.
The tour includes Val di Fassa, Marmolada glacier, Lagazuoi/Cinque Torri, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Alta Badia and Val Gardena ski areas.
During this six-days ski safari you stay in family run hotels and a mountain hut.
Thanks to the incredible cultural mix of the area, you have the possibility to encounter Italian, Tyrolean and Ladin culture, accommodation style and food & beverage traditions both in the valley floor small towns and in the high altitude refugios. This proximity of different peoples is also evident in the traces of recent past, with some massive sites of the First World War characterising mountains peaks. The historical heritage is well preserved and it gives life to one of the tours you live during your skiing experience: the WW1 ski tour. The famous Sellaronda mountain passes tour and the Super-8 mountain peaks tour are also included in the ski safari!
