Ski in the Dolomites - Marmolada
The Marmolada with its 3,342 m. height towers above all other peaks.

Here the "Bellunese", the longest slope in the Dolomites, provides skiers with 12 km of thrilling descents.
From here you can also set off on the famous Sellaronda tour, which, together with the other ski areas, is 500 km of pure snow fun.
