Our focus today, day one of our 30 days of ski resort developments for the 2012/13 season is on the Sella Ronda.
This is designed to smooth out some of those bottle necks that are almost inevitable on busier days in the Dolomites, which can make the route a trek rather than the delight it should be.
Following on from the new quad chair which was installed between the Passo Campolongo to Monte Cherz and a similar change made on Corvara’s Costes da l’Ega lift this season it’s Arabba who are seeing changes with a new fast chair being installed on Parta Vescova.
Slightly off the circuit, but upgrades that will benefit those who go exploring include the widening of the Gran Risa piste at La Villa, the new Bamby quad built last year between San Cassiano and La Villa and the six-pack which more than doubled the capacity at Passo Sella above Selva.
Visitors to the area are recommended to check out the benefits of booking ski hire before you travel, as significant savings can be made by reserving your equipment in advance. Some of the major centres from which equipment can be rented include
Arabba, Corvara, Selva, San Cassiano, Ortisei and Canazei. For other resorts do check our our ski hire directory.
