The unforgettable landscape of the protected Dolomites surrounds the 12 skiing areas of Dolomiti Superski.
The "most beautiful mountains in the world" or "Pale Mountains", how they are often called, are about 200 million years old, but do not suffer a loss regarding their beauty. In 2009, these mountains have been added to the list of the Natural World Heritage sites. The name can be attributed to the French geologist Déodat de Dolomieu, which defined the rocks of these peaks.
The most important mountain chains and groups are the Funes-Braies Dolomites, the Sesto Dolomites with the famous Three Peaks of Lavaredo which are breathtaking also in winter, Mt. Sciliar, Mt. Catinaccio, Mt. Latemar and the Odle-Puez Group. The highest peak is the Marmolada (3,342 m asl) with the only large glacier in the Dolomites.
In between there are the 12 skiing areas of the Dolomiti Superski carousel, from the far east of the region, the 3 Zinnen Dolomites skiing area in the Sesto Dolomites in the Upper Val Pusteria, to the Val Gardena skiing area near the mighty Sella Massif, in the heart of South Tyrol.
