Off-piste skiing in Marmolada

The Marmolada, along with the Sella (Sas Pordoi), is undoubtedly the top freeride destination in the Dolomites. It provides a wide range of routes, from the simplest to the most challenging. The broad ski runs are great for skiing, and the slopes facing north typically ensure fantastic powdery snow.

A day spent skiing on the soft snow of the Marmolada, one of the best freeride spot in the Dolomites.
The Marmolada has lots of off-piste skiing descent suitable for beginners and experts alike. You can test your limits on the more challenging slopes, or try off-piste skiing for the first time. Some skiing routes that can be accessed by using the Malga Ciapela – Punta Rocca cable car are Bellunese, vecchia pista, Intra i sass destra e sinistra, and Lydia. They frequently provide enjoyable skiing on stunning powder snow. The wide wild slops are ideal for skiing and present remarkable experiences every time.
The Marmolada canyon descent is a must-try, with two extremely slim rock walls in a truly exceptional and amazing setting where skis can barely fit. ATTENTION: not to be missed!
For those who enjoy skiing on a sunny side, Padon’s slopes provide numerous downhill routes with an impressive view of the neighbouring peaks. For those who prefer taking sharp turns, there are many options available in the forests above Arabba village.
Why wait to book your snowy adventure on Marmolada?

  • For all itineraries and activities, the guide reserves the right to make changes according to conditions (weather, accessibility, refuges) and the physical condition of the participants.
