Did you know, that …

…. in the Dolomiti Superski resort there are more than 1.100 km of slopes with snow making machines and therefore more then 90% of the slopes have reliable snow?
…. in the winter season of 2007/08, 574.233 skiers skied the Sellaronda? That corresponds to 23.000.000 km or 548 times around the world.

…. the capacity of cable cars/lifts per hour is about 626.478 people, which is about the population of Glasgow or Baltimore in the States?
…. if you put together all the hotel-beds of the region, 221.313 of them, you could cover 50 soccer-pitches?

Freestyle skiing in Dolomites

 

Recognising the ever-growing number of freestylers, the Dolomiti Superski organised a range of ‘Drop In’ freestyle days, where more than 22 ski and snowboard schools in the area joined forces to organise a day-long event of freestyle festivities for 12 to 18 year olds. It kicked off last January, twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Snowparks can be found at Cortina, Kronplatz, Alta Badia, Val Gardena, Alpe di Siusi, Val di Fassa, Alta Pusteria, Val di Femme, Obereggen, S. Martino, Valle Isarco, Tre Valli and Civetta.

Halfpipes are at Cortina d’Ampezzo, Val Gardena, Alpe di Siusi, Obereggen, S. Martino di Castrozza and Tre Valli. Highlights for really keen freestylers should be the Snowpark Alta Badia where 13 kickers reside, as well as 11 boxes/rails; and the O’Neill King Laurin Park at Alpe di Siusi with its easy and pro lines, 14 kickers, halfpipe, quarter pipe, 15 rails, one wall and 21 boxes.

Dolomiti Superski and Skirama

 

With its unique mix of nature and technology, enjoy the extraordinary thrill of winter sports at two large skiing districts boasting almost 700 km of fabulous pistes with enchanting landscapes and ultra-modern ski-lifts. Dolomiti Superski and Skirama are two large skipass systems which allow you to ski in almost all of the districts and valleys of Trentino.

The Dolomiti Superski pass includes Val di Fassa, Val di Fiemme and San Martino di Castrozza, allowing you to ski in 12 different areas featuring a series of unforgettable landscapes from Cermis, to Catinaccio and Marmolada. You can choose a different slope every day, all of which are perfectly tamped. The snow on the pistes is guaranteed by 3 thousand snow machines. The pistes in the area also boast 450, fast, comfortable ski-lifts of the latest generation. Visitors can travel across famous itineraries such as the Sellaronda and the Trevalli.

The Skirama Dolomiti Adamello Brenta pass includes 8 different skiing districts in Trentino: Madonna di Campiglio, Pinzolo, Folgarida-Marilleva, Peio, Tonale, Folgaria and Lavarone, Andalo-Fai della Paganella and Monte Bondone. Here, a single ski pass allows you to ski on 380 km of pistes at up to 3000 m in altitude. A programmed snow system guarantees that its pistes- equipped with 150, modern, highly efficient ski-lifts – remain snowy. Furthermore, you can ski in Tonale up to late spring. A truly unique and highly complete offer, for the best skiing holiday ever.

Moena capital of Val Di Fassa – Dolomites – Italy

 

Moena is positioned on a splendid natural alluvial hollow and surrounded by some of the most impressive Dolomite mountains.

The architectural style of the town appears very elegant and fashionable and its centre is enriched by beautiful and furnished shops. The village has in fact turned into an important tourist resort offering first-class structures and renewed restaurants. Moena pays much attention to the local cookery tradition and since some years it has been hosting different successful gastronomical events.

In summer-time Moena offers many hike-possibilities to his guests, peaceful rides in the meadows, mountain-bike trips of different levels. Thanks to the Rampilonga, one of the major Italian bike marathon with over 4500 competitors, (and that now has reached its 12th edition), Moena can be seen as the bikers home.

In winter it is possible to reach in a few minutes the skiing area Lusia, a real jewel of modern technology endowed of high level runs. The provided connections with the neighbouring areas, assure the best mobility to all ski lovers: they can rely on a skibus service.
