Wide, sunny slopes, modern cable cars and always a magnificent view of the imposing Sella massif: not without reason is the Sellaronda probably the most famous ski circuit in the world.

To ski around the mighty Sella massif in the Dolomites is the dream of countless winter sports enthusiasts. On the way you can enjoy wonderful views of the snow-covered peaks of the Dolomites, long downhill runs on slopes of medium difficulty and many stops for refreshments at cosy inns. If you add up the ascents by cable car and the descents on the pistes, you cover more than 40 km in about 4 hours, but you can add as many more lifts and pistes as you like. The ski circuit is signposted in both directions, this tour follows the orange markings and runs clockwise. The orange route, thanks to its longer descents, is a little more demanding in terms of fitness than the green route running the other way round. Nevertheless, the ski circuit in both directions is easily mastered by average skiers. . The pistes in the Sellaronda area are very well prepared throughout, but can become muddy during the day if there are large numbers of visitors. The pistes can become slushy in spring,

Wir haben die Tour an einem Samstag in der Nebensaison Januar gemacht und hätten es nicht besser treffen können: wenig Leute, Pisten bis in den Nachmittag hinein in super Zustand (weder eisig, noch sulzig), nicht zu kalt. Allen guten Skifahrern empfehle ich mindestens 1 Skigebiet entlang der Sellaronda genauer unter die Lupe zu nehmen, denn die Sellaronda selbst schafft man an nicht besonders starken Tagen locker in 3 Stunden (ohne große Pausen). Wir haben uns für Arabba/Porta Vescovo entschieden, und wollten eigentlich weiter bis auf die über 3.000 Meter hohe Marmolada. Die Seilbahn hinauf war an diesem Tag aber leider aufgrund von starken Windböen gesperrt, den Ausblick darauf haben wir trotzdem genossen. Sonst noch zu empfehlen sind sicher die Pisten in Gröden und hier besonders Dantercepies in Wolkenstein (wo man in der Tiefgarage direkt unter der Seilbahn parken kann, Kostenpunkt: ca. 8€ für einen Skitag). Vom Schwierigkeitsgrad her ist die Sellaronda nie schwer, eher leicht-mittel, deshalb gerne mal - wo möglich - schwerere Abfahrten wählen.
