The Sellaronda is a ski route that loops around the massif of the Sella mountain range, of the Dolomites. 

It is truly one of a kind with its network of lift facilities in a setting surrounded by rocky peaks, thick forests and snow-covered landscapes.  Completing the Sellaronda loop is quite easy and very gratifying, all you need to do is reach one of the four main starting points located around the Sella massif.  The main starting points are Val Gardena, Corvara, Arabba and Canazei. They are all linked together by numerous lift stations.  The total distance of the loop, including lifts, is about 40 kilometers and since the level is considered to be medium-high it is advisable to be physically fit and have a good knowledge of skiing.  Approximately 2 hours are spent on lifts, without taking into consideration time spent waiting in queues and stopping for breaks at the numerous huts and lodges along the way, therefore it is advised to start the route no later than 10:00 a.m. and furthermore it is extremely important to complete the last pass before 3:30 p.m. otherwise you risk having the lifts close before you arrive at your original departure point.  Actual ski time is around one and half hours if the pistes are done consecutively, although this depends largely on each individual skier.

The Sellaronda is marked on the map as follows:  orange for the clockwise direction and green for the counter clockwise direction.

The clockwise route of the Sellaronda, marked on the map in orange, begins in the center of Selva di Val Gardena.  Take the chairlift Costabella to the Dantercepies cable car that goes up to Gardena Pass, then follow the slopes to Colfosco where the chairlift Borest takes you to Corvara, after which take the cable car Boè to get down to Campolongo Pass.  The pistes lead to Bec de Roces where the route for Arabba begins.  Once you’ve arrived in Arabba, take the cable car that goes to Porta Vescovo then ski all the way down to Pont de Vauz.  From there, the chairlift at Fedom will take you to Pordoi Pass. After a short distance you will come to the chairlift Lezuo that goes to Belvedere, continue the descent until Plan Frataces where you’ll find Lupo Bianco and from there you take a gondola and charilift up to Rodella Pass – Sella Pass.  A gorgeous long slope leads down to Selva di Val Gardena.  This route covers approximately 13.518 meters with lifts and 23.100 m of actual downhill skiing making a total of about 37 kilometers.
