Tour description

Selva di Cadore, skiing in the hearth of the Dolomites

Itinerary: Selva di Cadore, Zoldo, Alleghe, the Dolomites
Selva di Cadore is an important ski resort in the Dolomites, in province of Belluno, with 8 slopes of various difficulty
The ski resort Selva di Cadore is located in the heart of the Dolomites, in the province of Belluno. The nearby small villages of Santa Fosca and Pescul also are part of Selva di Cadore. This ski area is located at the foot of Mount Pelmo at the beginning of Valfiorentina and overlooked by the impressive Marmolada and Civetta, two mountain groups declared "Natural Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO.

Here, the downhill skiers will find 4 chair lifts and 4 ski lifts that go up 8 slopes of different difficulty and descend from Mount Fernazza to Alleghe located on the other side of the mountain. In the centre of Santa Fosca, there is a snow park with school served by a ski lift and equipped with a snow playground for children with slides and bob.

The ski resorts of Selva di Cadore, Zoldo and Alleghe create the beautiful ski area of Civetta, also named "Skicivetta", with 80 km of slopes and 23 ski Lifts. Selva di Cadore is part of the larger network of ski resorts called DolomitiSuperski and along with the other ski resorts of Skicivetta, offers a large number of slopes for alpine skiing and snowboarding of various difficulties, spread across an area of more than 80 kilometres.
For lovers of Nordic skiing, in the fairy tale setting of resort Peronaz, there is a fully equipped centre with 4 ring paths of 3 - 5 - 7 - 11 km of medium difficulty.
The whole area of Cadore was a permanent war zone during the first world war. The ski tour "la Grande Guerra" ( "La Grande Guerra" is a popular nickname for the first world war in Italy) follows the front of the Dolomites. Through the most scenic views of Cadore, the itinerary goes all around Col di Lana, the mountain where there were the most dramatic and bloody battles of the whole war. The tour is intended for skiers of mean skill level both men and children.

Night skiing is possible near Zoldo, where there are two floodlit tracks. There are some few shelters along the tracks where it is possible to stop and rest.

Selva di Cadore is a nice small village. Shopping is possible in its several boutiques while its many spas and beauty centres offer a lot of opportunities of resting and relaxing after a day spent on the ski tracks. There is also an ice skating arena in Alleghe, ten kilometres away from Selva.

Pieve di Cadore can be reached by Cortina D'ampezzo through the road SP 638, or from Alleghe through the road SR203.
