During the winter, the Marmolada offers visitors the chance to enjoy all sorts of winter sports, also thanks to the link with the Dolomiti Superski areas of Arabba, Civetta and Sellaronda. The main slope is “La Bellunese”, which stretches from Punta Rocca (3269 m) down to Malga Ciapela, (1446 m). Totalling 12 km, it is the longest run in the Dolomites, and can be reached using the cableway of the same name, divided up into three stretches: the first stops at Banc, the second at Serauta and the third at Punta Rocca. At the foot of the mountains is the Padon area, with runs suitable for everyone, from expert skiers to beginners, as well as areas dedicated to the whole family. In the saddle between Piccolo Vernel and Marmolada is Forcella della Marmolada (2896m), the starting point of the West Ridge Via Ferrata to Marmolada's summit. Both routes (one from north, one from the south) come together there. Most people go up from the north side of the mountain, because of the cableway that shortens the ascent. We took the more quiet route from the south, from where this photo was taken.
