What to know before you go

The ski tour cuts through four passes and connects the Ladin valleys of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Fassa and Arabba. You can easily accomplish the Sellaronda ski tour in one day and explore it in both directions. Descents, climbs and breaks considered, it'll take about about 6 hours to cross the finish line. If you decide to ski clockwise, remember to follow the orange signs, whereas if you have opted for skiing anticlockwise, then take the green directions. Thanks to the many ski lifts, the tour's perfectly groomed slopes are so well connected that you won't be forced to take your skis off. As far as the connections are concerned: you can take a ski bus from the Kronplatz ski area to reach the start of the Sellaronda ski tour.  To make your way to the ski lift before it closes, we recommend you leave before 10 am. Live one of the undeniable best skiing experiences.

 

Limitless skiing

Push your boundaries and go backcountry skiing around the Sella group with the Dolomiti Superski, the only ski pass that covers 15 ski areas in the Dolomites. You'll be blown away by the beauty of skiing in the ski area of the Marmolada glacier or descending the Gran Risa in Alta Badia and Saslong in Val Gardena World Cup slopes.

Sellaronda Ski Marathon

The legendary night ski mountaineering race celebrates its 30th edition on March 22, 2024

42 km long, 2,800 m of elevation, rapid descents in the moonlight: we're talking about one of the most extraordinary ski races in the world that's going to take place on March 22, 2024 at 6 p.m. It's the day on which around 1,000 top athletes compete in a two-person team across the pistes of the Dolomites. They'll do the ski marathon clockwise and will therefore start from Canazei to ski around the Sella massif. After knitting Selva Gardena and Corvara in Alta Badia together, the athletes will return back to Canazei. Not everyone has the physical resistance and training to cope with the extreme conditions of this night race: just think that the route winding through the snow-capped mountains is only illuminated by the dim light of headlamps and starry sky. The fastest time for this marathon is slighlty exceeding three hours.

Rules of winter sports safety

The "Traffic Laws" of the International Ski and Snowboard Federation FIS

Skiers and snowboarders under 18 years of age are required to wear a helmet.

To gain access to ski areas, you need to get the liability insurance (RC) to be protected against unwilling damage . Although most common policies cover winter sports, always make sure with your insurance company what are the benefits and coverage of yours.

For instance, the insurance "Snowcare" can be purchased for 3€ per day and is the most known ski and snowboard insurance in Europe. Check this website for more information.

Check your speed, signage, ride appropriately and choose the level of difficulty based on youyr skiing ability.

If you want to overtake, make sure there is enough room.

Don't underestimate the run traffic and the snow conditions during your time on the slopes.

If you fall, don't obstruct the way and stay where you are visible from above.

In case you are injured and cannot stand up, other skiers have the duty to provide assistance.

Remain at the scene and identify yourself, if you caused the accident or are a witness.

If you can't finish the run on skies or snowboard, you can walk down only by sticking to the side of the route.

Drunk skiing is as dangerous as drink driving and it is therefore forbidden by the law. The maximum consumpion permitted is 0,5% grams of alcohol in every 100ml of blood.

In critical situations, the SOS EU ALP app gives you assistance. It locates where you are and your position is then transmitted to the responsible control center, which can provide notifications to the medical services, mountain, ground or air rescue units. This safety service is available in South Tyrol’s regions and Bavaria.
