Malga Ciapela: at the foot of the Marmolada
Malga Ciapela is the departure point for your days in the Marmolada ski area. In this hamlet of Rocca Pietore, at an altitude of 1450 metres a.s.l., the hotels are just metres from the ski runs and the main trails in the valley to explore during the summer.
Malga Ciapela (1450 metres a.s.l.) is the departure station of the famous Marmolada cableway, which climbs up to Punta Rocca (3265 metres a.s.l.). On the way up, you can get off at the Serauta station (2950 metres) for a visit to the Great War museum, and once you reach the top you can stop to admire the splendid 360° views over the Dolomites from the superb natural terrace. And after all these thrills, awaiting you in winter is the 12 km-long "la Bellunese" run, with an altitude difference of 1810 m and unrivalled views over the Sella range.
Cross-country skiing fans will find trails of varying lengths running through marvellous snow-covered woodland, while if you prefer snowshoeing, you might like to venture along the route that runs through the Franzedas Valley to Malga Franzedas.
