Good information, Lynn, and you really took advantage of the conditions with your pictures. The Sella Ronda provides strong skiing interest. It is a great area for me ~ apart from the skiing, the Dolomitic effect provides great painting opportunities. Arraba does have a good snow record, so generally seems good to book ahead.
Thanks for a great report. I haven't skied the Dolomites since I was a kid. It's definitely on my list of places to go.
Looking distinctly possible for a Jan 2012 trip for me now!!! Might be looking to stop in La Villa/Corvara area though.
Just bare in mind the travelling time around the circuit to reach either Arabba or Selva Gardena where the best runs are.
Corvara is well placed (right on the circuit), La Villa is a bit of a trek.

Thank you for a superb reporting on Arabba and Dolomites
Hopefully we will be heading there in January too
Hi Lynne,

Thanks for that report it has brought back some fantastic memories! We're off Arabba in February (95 sleeps) for the 5th time. I learnt to ski there in 2008 for my 40th birthday, not an ideal place for a beginner (at that age) but my instructor advised me 'if you can ski here you can ski anywhere!' With 1200km on the same pass we haven't skied the same area twice, (apart from the route back to our hotel)and there is still more to discover. We have a guide each year from the Arabba ski school which doubles up as lessons so you manage to go further afield without having to stop and look at the piste maps! The Hidden Valley is a must with the bonus of the horses pulling you along the flat section at the end! For something different try the Serrai di Sottoguda opposite the Marmolada cable car, quite a spectacular foot path wide trail through a ravine with frozen waterfalls and ice climbers.

We have the 'e-skipass' on the website which you load from home so are straight off on Day 1! Happy days

Reference to the off piste, although we are not 'off pisters' I believe that it's not allowed in the dolomitisuperski area without a guide. Reference to helmets, in Italy it is law to wear them under 14 years of age so the Italians grow up with them. You seem to be in the minority if you don't wear one.

We are off the Les Arcs in January but have never been there before!(60 sleeps) Can't wait!
