If you are looking for a place to change slope every day, you have found it. Simply put, no resort in Europe boasts a broader Network of interconnected valleys as Dolomiti Superski. While you have a respectable 130 km of runs in Alta Badia alone, you are granted the opportunity to access at least 4 to 6 neighboring valleys every day. Grand Tourisme skiers will enjoy the well-known Sellaronda (26km) and the immense WW1 ski Tour (90km). But Alta Badia and the neighboring valleys also offer slopes to give advanced skiers quite a run for their Money, such as Gran Risa (53% max slope), Cortina's Staunies (72%), Arabba's Fodoma (55%), Val Gardena's Saslong (45%) and the poker of blacks in nearby Kronplatz (Piculin:68%, Erta:64%, Herrnegg:60% and Sylvester:50%). If you are looking for scenery and Pictures, the Lagazuoi, Marmolada Glacier and the 10 km Longia to nearby Ortisei are not to be missed.
