Arraba Ski Resort
The extraordinary raw beauty of the Dolomites and access to the Sella Ronda circuit (a vast ski area with over 1000km of groomed pistes) place this mountain range in a league of its own.
Arabba is one of the highest resorts in the Dolomites with snow sure, north-facing slopes and stunning views of jagged-topped peaks that tear their way dramatically through the snow. This is a resort for pure driven skiers and snowboarders. The quiet and relaxed pace of life in resort means there's little to entice you into too much alcohol-fuelled trouble, and mornings are spent exploring the incredible slopes rather than blowing away last nights après-cobwebs. The village itself is a charming one, reflecting a wooded Tyrolean style from the past (the Dolomites were actually under Austrian control until the end of the First World War) and there's easy access to the lifts and runs from most accommodation.
For those that do like an après drink at the end of the day there are a couple of chilled-out bars. Top tip - opt for a local wine over beer – it tastes great and is as cheap as chips (probably cheaper)!
Did You Know?
If you've been to Arabba and thought it looks more Austrian than Italian, it's because it once was Austria! The Dolomites, including Arabba, were under Austrian control until the end of the First World War.
