Excellent powder conditions in the Dolomites with more to come.

post #1 of 6

I have a friend who runs a small hotel in the town of Arrabba on the Sella Ronde. He tells me they have excellent off piste skiing in powder at the moment with something like 2 to 3 feet of fresh powder forecast starting Tuesday the 24th.

 

Get those fat boards out of storage and jump on a plane.

 Looks like that could be the Passo Pordoi close to Arrabba.

Had a blast at the sella. I think it's 200+ lifts and 2500km on one lift pass

Sella Ronda is about 40 or so kilometers - either direction. And it is 1200 km of pistes on Dolomiti Superski Pass. Not all connected, some short bus rides required here and there, but nevertheless great area to ski and often unfairly viewed as "mellow".

I just think it is the opposite - because of huge numbers of intermediate skiers attracted to groomers, stashes of good snow are left untouched for days. Val chair in Selva serves some fairly steep(ish) terrain with nobody on it for hours, you can follow your own tracks lap after lap. Glad to see them getting some snow this year. Truly spectacular area, well deserving of UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Huge powder runs available of the Marmolada cable cars.
