Marmolada the highest mountain in Dolomites

Marmolada
The Queen of the Dolomites. The Marmolada, with its 3,342 m altitude, is the highest mountain in the Dolomites. Its' northern side is covered by the largest glacier in the whole Dolomites group. The Marmolada Glacier contains the resort villages of Arabba and Malga Ciapela that are both linked together. The ski area can be easily reached with the cableways from Malga Ciapela and Lago Fedaia. There is "La Bellunese" a slope that runs from Punta Rocca (3.270 m) down to Malga Ciapela for 12 km. This slope is considered by international press reports as the most beautiful in the Alps and the Dolomiti Superski Area. It is a difficult ski run because of very changeable weather conditions.

" Conquering the peak
The scene before us is unforgettable. Just like a real queen the mountain receives visitors, her snow covered head held high. On the summit you have the feeling that the whole world lies at your feet ! Seeing this for the first time takes one's breath away. It took 270 million years for all of this to come into being. To the south an 800 metre cliff stands vertical, to the north we can make out the glistening sugar coated silhouette of the giant on Lago Fedaia. Yet another colossus, Monte Pelmo, makes its presence felt here, once conquered as the first three thousand metre peak. We simply have to sit up and take notice of the 12 kilometre long run ! Worldwide there are very few of this length and even fewer are so lovely.
This is skiing in its most spectacular form! "
