Go big or go home! Italy’s Arabba is where endurance ski fanatics come to play. Get up at dawn to make first tracks on the sky-high Marmolada glacier (aka the Queen of the Dolomites) and the steepest verticals of the mighty Italian Dolomites. Don't forget to save some energy for the 40km SellaRonda Circuit.
And remember to look-up when hitting all the steely runs and deep powder bowls - the UNESCO-protected scenery is out of this world!
Heroic piste bashers keep Arabba's slopes well-groomed and primed for all of your supersized ski adventures. With the lofty peaks of Marmolada nearby, there's nearly always fresh snow at the top, and an extensive snowmaking network keeps any ice at bay. Nice one!
February is popular amongst fresh powder devotees. And for clear bluebird days, January is your best bet. As you'd expect, the Dolomites get busier during the holidays. But peaceful Arabba is tucked away from nearby lively resorts, so it’s a super place to avoid crowds.
Things to do in Arabba
Arabba is big on skiing, but not so big on the apres. Small and traditional, the village has a relaxed vibe. So, take it easy and unwind with a glass of Italian red after a big day on the piste. Top up the energy levels with delicious homemade food - pizza and pasta are on every menu!
And if, by some miracle, you still have some energy left, the snowshoe routes are well worth exploring, there are abundant frozen waterfalls for epic ice-climbing, and to really get the adrenalin pumping, you can rag around the snowmobile circuit.
