Marmolada, Dolomites, Italy




The "Queen of the Dolomites", rising gracefully up from the Fedaia Pass, impressively dominates above all the other mountains in the eastern Alps.

Its sunny South Face is a climbers paradise and its shadowy North Face is a dream for those in search of off-piste thrills, far away from the madding crowds.

Long after the snow has melted away in other resorts, skiers continue to revel in the white gold which remains on this glacier all year round.

Food, Accommodation and Après-ski
Those in search of peace and quiet will appreciate the Passo Fedaia Hotel or the Rifugio Marmolada, both situated at the top of the Fedaia Pass. The Tyrolia Hotel in Malga Ciapela or the quiet Bed and Breakfast La Montanara in Sottoguda are recommended, too. Don't forget to visit the waterfalls at the Serrai di Sottoguda, just a couple of minutes away. The Val di Fassa is much more lively and the nightlife is quite good. The Speck Keller, next to the ski school, is extremely popular and stays open till the early hours. Late nights usually mean late starts - don't forget though that the best snow can usually be found early in the morning!
