There are quite a few reasons to pick the Dolomite Superski when school’s out for a week... The list would probably start with the fact that Italians don’t have a half-term, so the crowds in many of the French and Austrian resorts are slightly more dwindled on the Dolomite pistes.
Having said this, the Sella Ronda does get a bit chock-a-block on peak weeks so it’s best to start early if you want to ski this local legend. Lots of people are so intent on getting around the Sella Massif in one go that they miss out on some other amazing routes - the “Hidden Valley” at Lagazoui, the Seceda mountain side up from St Cristina, the Marmolada glacier up from Arabba, the Saslong world cup downhill run to Selva and the self-timer run in Canazei are a few examples that barely scratch the surface of the 1200m area.
The ski schools are difficult not to be impressed with and the main ski areas all have a well-thought out program for those learning to ski or wanting to perfect their style. The nursery areas are well-equipped with most using magic carpets to help little ones up the slope and Kronplatz, Alta Badia and Val Gardena are just a few of the areas that have a fun park as well. Structured timetables are drawn up by the kindergartens and childcare establishments for littlest little ones.
