Ski Area Marmolada

The Queen of the Dolomites

Marmolada, with its 3343 metres, is the highest mountain in the Dolomites. Its northern side is covered with the widest glacier of the whole dolomitic chain. Thanks to its stateliness and to its extraordinary beauty it is called the Queen of the Dolomites.

On its skiing sides there were important ski competitions in the 1950s; legendary names in the history of the downhill skiing, as Sailer, Pravda, Hinteser, Obergainer, Bozon from France, Wallace from the USA, Colò Gartner and Gluck from Italy competed in the longest giant slalom of the world and in the races of the “Tre Tre”. Such extraordinary events drew thousands of people to Fedaia, who walked from Pian Trevisan to the Pass to see and cheer their idols.

The first chair lift, which from Fedaia led to Pian dei Fiacconi, was built in 1952. It was an important event for the development of tourism and for the national and international sport. Skiing on Marmolada is always an unforgettable experience and a very charming chance.

Skiing to Marmolada

Situated at 2054 m, it is reached after the village of Penia and Pian Trevisan. The area features an imposing reservoir, bordered by a dam that blocks the top of the Avisio Valley to create a lake that is 1.85 km long. The Fedaia Pass, in front of the Marmolada glacier - Queen of the Dolomites - is very popular in summer and winter alike. On the southern slope of Marmolada, there is a famous skiing area, served by a single cable car that is very popular from the end of February to early May, when it offers views and snowy conditions that cannot be equalled. This is a real paradise for off-piste ski enthusiasts and for ascents using seal skins. le salite con le pelli di foca.

In Summer in Marmolada

Organising an excursion on Marmolada is not just a dream for all excursionists; it is also a much-sought-after destination because it means achieving an important goal. In fact, the climb up to the Queen of the Dolomites involves a degree of difficulty that goes beyond simple excursions – not so much because of the elevation, but due to the technical difficulties involved. As well as the fixed rope routes, the greatest dangers lie with the glacier’s ice ridges. Therefore, a great deal of experience, caution and - if possible - the presence of an Alpine guide are needed. Moreover, this excursion is not for anyone on their own and must always be done roped together and using the necessary equipment, such as crampons and ice picks. However, without going into too much detail, reaching Punta Penia, or in other words, the summit, does not just make up for the exertion of the high elevation, the panorama from up there is enough to repay any sacrifice.
