Dolomiti Superski - the number 1 among the ski resorts
Dolomiti Superski is as unique and gigantic as the Dolomites themselves. One skipass gives access to 12 large ski resorts and more than 1,200 kilometres of slopes. Plenty of nature, friendly people, endless entertainment. A great place for families. Attractive offers. Last but not least - sunshine usually on 8 out of 10 days. The ideal conditions for families, beginners, champions and high society to make the most of a fantastic holiday time in a winter wonderland.
The most beautiful mountains in the worldThis is what most people who have been in the presence of these gigantic rock formations say. Compared to other mountains: brighter, more colourful, more monumental, and seeming to be architecturally inspired. Formed 200 millions years ago out of the primeval ocean, today they reach 3,000 metres into the sky. Déodat de Dolomieu (1750-1801) discovered and defined the unique composition of the stone, giving the mountains their name. Now they are among the UNESCO nominees for consideration as natural heritage sites. A winter sport setting that could not be more impressive.
The snow guarantee for your perfect winter holidayThe Dolomiti Superski region is very large; it includes 1,200 km of slopes and 450 state-of-the-art lift facilities. What counts most, however, is the quality. If necessary, 90% of the slopes are covered by snow making facilities. This ensures that 1,100 km of slopes are always ready, even when snow is in short supply.
Ideal climate for winter sportsPowder snow and blue sky; this is how it should be. In the Dolomites the conditions are ideal. According to experts, 80 percent sunshine and the very low air humidity are responsible for the extremely powdery snow. Additionally, the slopes are all situated at –‘snow-proof’ altitudes between 1,500 and 3,269 metres.
Many services and one objective: perfect slopesIn the dark of night, whilst hotel guest are soundly sleeping, in excess of 300 snowcats ensure that the slopes are perfectly smooth for the following morning. Engineers look after the state- of-the-art snow making facilities that create the perfect snow on the slopes and 3,000 staff members take care of the guests at the lift facilities.
