Situated between the Gruppo del Sella and glacier-topped Marmolada massif, Arabba is a low-key and peaceful Italian ski resort in the Fodom Valley with outstanding views. At the heart of the Dolomiti Superski area, Arabba occupies a grandstand position on the Sella Ronda.
Sitting at an altitude of 1,602m, Arabba is a small traditional village with a few shops, bars and restaurants. The older part of the village features wooden houses and the Pieve di Livinallongo church dating back to the late 1600s. Higher up, luxury ski chalets in Arabba are on the rise due to the village’s fantastic access to both Alta Badia and the Sella Ronda sectors.
The Arabba-Marmolada ski area is home to over 60 km of local pistes but as part of the Dolomiti Superski carousel, you have access to 1,200 km of slopes across 15 resorts. Arabba is also one of the starting points of the famous “Sella Ronda” circuit, a stunning 40 km ski route that covers the four Ladin valleys of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Arabba and Val di Fassa.
Aside from skiing, Arabba offers a plethora of alternative winter activities from snowshoe treks and snowmobiling to ice climbing and panoramic helicopter flights over the Dolomites. In summer, trekking, hiking and biking are popular pursuits.

Skiing in Arabba
Arabba ski holidays offer an excellent selection of slopes ranging from open to woodland pistes. From Arabba, you can ski to the highest mountain in the Dolomites, the Marmolada. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful peaks in the Dolomites, ski holidays in Arabba are filled with spectacular scenery. As one of the higher resorts in the region along with shady runs, you can be confident of decent snow. However, the snowmaking is extensive if you’re unlucky with fresh snowfall.
Arabba’s slopes are divided into three distinct areas: one directly above the village, on the slopes below the Porta Vescovo with lifts linking up to the Passo Pordoi and Canazei, and finally the lifts linking up to the Passo Campolongo and Corvara.
Arabba’s local slopes offer some of the steepest terrain in the Sella Ronda, making it popular with more adventurous skiers. The north-facing blacks and reds from Porta Vescovo offer genuine challenges. Beginners could struggle here (although there is a nursery slope near the Burz chair). However, some of the blues might well be listed as reds in other resorts. Freestylers can enjoy access to the terrain park from Le Pale chairlift which is full of jumps, rails and boxes.
Restaurants and apres ski in Arabba
From traditional Ladin cuisine to international specialities, you can enjoy a variety of dining options in Arabba. On the mountain, Rifugio Luigi Gorza is located at the top of Porta Vescovo with outstanding views of the glacier from the outdoor terraces. Another recommended spot is the modern Rifugio Burz, with its dazzling views and modern twist to Ladin cuisine. Located in the Hotel Alpen Rose, the restaurant Stube Ladina is recommended for its carefully prepared and well-presented dishes made from regional produce and interesting wine list. In the centre of Arabba by the Burz chairlift, Milky’s Grill specialises in grilled meat and fresh pasta dishes. There are also several pizzerias to choose from.
Like many of the smaller resorts in the Dolomiti Superski, there isn’t a huge après-ski offering. However, Bar Peter in the centre of the village offers music, pizza and cocktails all winter.
