Sella Ronda, Dolomites, Italy
This classic 26km ski circuit takes you through some of the most dramatic views in the Dolomites – and that’s really saying something. Linked runs encircle the cliffs of the magnificent Sella massif and can be skied in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction (top tip – we prefer clockwise, there’s less poling involved).
While not for novices, the Sella Ronda circuit can be conquered by confident intermediates with a bit of stamina. The loop will take all day, so leave plenty of time for your adventure. And prepare to be dazzled by those majestic limestone crags - come sunset, they take on a ruby glow that will make your heart soar.
Val di Fassa makes a great base for tackling the Sella Ronda. Simply take the Belvedere lift from neighbouring Canazei to join the loop.
