Skiing and Ski Trips in South Tyrol

The Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi, with its deep forests and mighty mountain peaks, is home to numerous myths and legends. Besides women with a special knowledge of herbs, dwarves and giants picture prominently in the stories connected with this region.

The regional lore is especially rich in tales about the malevolent Schlern/Sciliar witches. Compatsch/Compaccio is the entry point into the Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi "Witches' Roundtrip Tour," which has seven stations and lots of magic fun for young and old, alike. The Fun Park, "Witch's Hump" ski slope, an obstacle course through an ice tunnel, and a "Witches' Park" with life-size figures of witches are just some of the attractions. Of course, you'll also find the famous "Witches' Benches" where the Schlern/Sciliar sorceresses rested and conjured clouds.
The Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi Witches Roundtrip will take you to some of the best outlook points in the region, where mythological beings like witches, giants, and other creatures are said to have once roamed: Puflatsch (2,130 meters above sea-level), Spitzbühl (1,935 m), Panorama (2,009 m), Goldknopf (2,249 m), Williams Hut (2,100 m), Steger Dellai, Monte Piz, and Piz (2,005 m).
Today, seven wooden installations pay tribute to the memory of the weird doings of the Schlern/Sciliar witches. At each station, there's a "Witches' Book" with information about the strange activities of these mysterious legendary figures.

      The unique and spectacular panorama ski carousel encompassing the Sella Massive connects the four Ladin valleys and world-renowned ski regions: Gröden/Gardena, Alta Badia, Arabba, and Fassa Valley. Even before reinforced roads and aerial lifts became common, it was possible to make a roundtrip ski tour around the Sella Group. The inhabitants of the surrounding area were thus able to keep in contact via the four passes.
      The Sella Ronda affords access to 500 km of slopes and some of the world's most-famous downhill slopes: Bellunese (Marmolada), Gran Risa (Alta Badia), Val Giumela (Fassa Valley), and Saslong (Gröden/Gardena). The four Alpine villages of Corvara, Arabba, Canzei, and Wolkenstein are excellent starting points.
      The tour takes 5-6 hours. It's thus possible to complete a circuit in either direction in just one day. The Sella Ronda has a total length of about 40 km, including 26 km of ski slopes which an intermediate-level skiers should have no difficulty completing. It is a unique ski carousel situated in the enchanting Alpine landscape of the Dolomites, with mountain peaks, traditional Alpine villages, and a breath-taking panorama.

      We approach by ski, until we're 1 hour (by car) away from Venice…
      This ski tour explores remnants of World War I: The route will take us along the former Dolomite Front, around the Col di Lana, the so-called Blood Mountain, which is a symbol of the First World War. Nevertheless, the ski tour has an optimistic feel to it because visitors to this magnificent mountain world can recognize how important peace is. During this tour, we will encounter defensive positions, fortified caves, and trenches built by the Austro-Hungarian, German, and Italian soldiers during World War I in their efforts to subdue the enemy and survive at high altitudes. The trip takes us through the fascinating landscape of the Dolomites, through the zones of the Arabba, Alta Badia, Cortina, Lagazuoi, 5 Torri, and Passo Giau and past such famous summits as the Civetta, Pelmo, Cinque Torri, Tofana, Lagazuoi, Conturines, Settsass, Sassongher, Sella, and Marmolata. The downhill trip from Lagazuoi to Armentarola and the longest slope of the Dolomites from the Punta Rocca via the Marmolata Glacier to Malga Ciapela are spectacular. The Mountain Infantry Ski Tour is a day-long outing for the whole family. Not only skiers, but also snowboarders will find it to be a special highlight of their winter vacation.
