Ski tour Sellaronda in the Dolomiti Superski
The Sella Ronda circuit is probably one of the most spectacular loops in the world! We are talking about 40 kilometers connected slopes, including lifts, riding around the Sella Mountain in the hearth of the Dolomites.
The starting points are in Val Gardena Gröden, Arabba, Canazei Val di Fassa, Corvara Val Badia. A mid-high level circuit, which is suitable for beginners with a ski guide or a ski instructor from a ski school, or for skiers who already have a good base of skiing. The Sella Ronda can be done in two directions, clockwise and anti-clockwise.
The clockwise route of the Sellaronda, marked on maps and slopes with the orange color, begins in Selva di Val Gardena. Through the chairlift Costabella, which brings to the Dantercepies cable way, you can ski in direction of the Gardena Pass. The following slopes will lead you to Colfosco where the chairlift Borest takes you to Corvara Val Badia / Gadertal. From there the cable car Boè will open you the doors to the majestic Campolongo Pass. The slopes lead to Bec de Roces where the route for Arabba begins. Once arrived in Arabba, take the cableway Porta Vescovo then ski the way down to Pont de Vauz with his stunning sceneries. From there, the chairlift at Fedom will lead you to the Pordoi Pass. After the Pordoi Pass you will find the chairlift Lezuo that goes to the magnificent Belvedere, continue the downhill until Plan Frataces where you’ll find the famous Lupo Bianco and from there you can take a gondola and charilift up to Col Rodella –Passo Sella. A breathtaking long slope leads down to Selva di Val Gardena. This unique route covers approximately 13.518 meters with lifts and cableways and 23.100 m of actual downhill skiing on a glittering white coat, making a total of about 37 kilometers.
The anti-clockwise route of the Sellaronda, which you will find in green on maps and slopes, also begins in Selva di Val Gardena by using the cableway Ciampinoi and following route 5 until Plan de Gralba. From there, you take the chairlift Piz Seteur, ski down a short distance to get to the chairlift Sassolungo (at the feet of the majestic Saslong Mountain). Next, go through the fairy tale like “Stone city” (a natural agglomerate of rocks fallen many years ago from the Saslong Sassolungo mountain, building kind of a low skyline) till you get to Sella Pass / Passo Sella / Sellajoch, there you will find the chairlift Sasso Levante to Val Salei. In Val Salei, you need to ski all the way down until you get to the cable car Plan Frataces, then ski on to Lupo Bianco in direction of Kristiania where a 6-seater chairlift will lift you up to the Sas Becè mountain lodge. The next long downhill will lead you straight to the ski hotspot of Belvedere in Arabba. To get to the chairlift that will lead you to Bec de Roces, you must first cross the road, by walking, not by skiing. At the end of the slope, you will arrive to Campolongo Pass where you will get the chairlift to Crep dl Mont going on to Corvara. Two chairlifts will bring you from Corvara to Colfosco where you will find a long cableway leading you to the Cir Mountain at Passo Gardena. Here there is a chairlift called Val Setus that runs on to Passo Gardena. Take the next chairlift to the legendary Dantercepies pistes and follow the slope through the forest down to Val Gardena, or eventually try the former women’s world cup slope, running down to Vallunga / Langental.
This route counts approximately 15.705 m of lifts and 22.950 meters of actual downhill skiing on best-prepared snow, making an overall of about 38 km and 655 m. This all garnished by lots of typical mountain huts / cottages, preparing best traditional dishes, made out of local products and welcoming you in a familiar atmosphere.
