Dolomiti Region -Italy
This morning the Dolomites awoke under a blanket of snow (20 - 50 cm new snow) and now we have a beautiful sunny winter day with fresh snow.
Skiing under the spring sun!
After the extensive snowfalls of the past days (20 to 60 cm fresh snow) on the Dolomites the sun is shining again. Longer days and pleasant temperatures make the spring the best period in the season for skiing.
In many valleys of the Dolomiti Superski area - Cortina d'Ampezzo (Falzarego, Tofana, Faloria, Cristallo), Kronplatz, Val Gardena/Alpe di Siusi, Val di Fassa, Arabba/Marmolada, Alta Pusteria (Monte Elmo, P.sso Monte Croce), Val di Fiemme/Obereggen, S. Martino di Castrozza (Tognola), Passo Rolle, Valle Isarco (Maranza, Valles) and Trevalli (Alpe Lusia-Bellamonte) - it will be possible to ski until the 17th/18th of April, the Sellaronda included.
Ski Challenge 31st March - 2nd April 2006
During this great event ski enthusiasts have the chance to compete on the slopes of Civetta, Falcade/Trevalli and Arabba/Marmolada following the historic trails. This year sees the return of the unforgettable Super Gigantissimo of the Marmolada combined with the Giant Slalom and the now established Gigantissimo Trevalli/Passo San Pellegrino. An element of innovation is represented by the 4 hours of Giant Slalom by night in Val di Zoldo.
On 26th March 2006 takes place the 10th edition of Gardenissima, with 6 km the longest giant slalom of the Dolomites. Last year more than 500 skiers took part at this particular race.
