Dolomiti Superski – amazing season’s start
The 2023-24 Dolomiti Superski winter season gets off to a great start with a wide range of open lifts and pistes for the first big winter bank holiday on 8 December. In total, more than 320 lifts and around two thirds of the piste kilometres will be available in all 12 ski resorts in the Dolomites. The weather forecasts are also favourable. So far, the number of skiers has been higher than last year.
The 2023-24 Dolomiti Superski adventure officially began on 25 November in the Kronplatz and Obereggen/Pampeago ski resorts and immediately attracted a great deal of interest from ski enthusiasts. This was followed by the openings between 1 and 3 December in Cortina d'Ampezzo, 3 Peaks, Gitschberg Jochtal - Brixen, San Martino di Castrozza/Rollepass, Alpe Lusia/San Pellegrino and Civetta. Thanks to favourable weather conditions, slope grooming could be completed earlier this year. On 5 December, the winter season also began in the central ski resorts of the Dolomites (Alta Badia, Val Gardena/Alpe di Siusi, Val di Fassa/Carezza and Arabba/Marmolada), including the Sellaronda in both directions. From 8 December, more than 320 of the 450 lifts will be on duty and around two thirds of the 1,200 kilometres of pistes will be open.

"Our investments in the latest technologies, which are more efficient and therefore more sustainable, enable us to start the season on time. This benefits the entire winter tourism industry, as it allows everyone to plan their activities and, above all, guests who spend their holidays in our mountains can rely on services being available on time" said Andy Varallo, President of Dolomiti Superski, lift operator and hotelier from Corvara, at the start of the season in the Dolomites.

Satisfactory start to the season

The early snowfall at the end of October and mid-November not only helped to ensure that the pistes could be groomed earlier and better, but also created a pronounced winter mood among ski enthusiasts. The figures at the start of the season therefore speak for themselves: compared to the previous winter season, which was one of the best ever, the current winter season has started with +15% in first-time access (single skiers per day) and +10% lift rides, although the service was already restricted on some days due to strong winds. The season ski passes of Dolomiti Superski have been purchased 19% more so far, those of the individual ski areas 14% more.

"As lift operators in Dolomiti Superski, we can only be satisfied with this start to the season. The conditions are very good and the fact that ski enthusiasts are once again appreciating our commitment and our products makes us very confident about the future" says Andy Varallo, President of Dolomiti Superski.

Liability insurance and compulsory helmet for minors

In Italy, there is a general liability insurance for damages to third parties while skiing. All skiers must therefore have appropriate insurance cover. The insurance cover can be taken out online with the insurance company - QR codes to the corresponding website are available at the Dolomiti Superski ski pass sales points. Of course, all other private insurance policies of this type are also valid. It is recommended that you carry a photocopy of the valid insurance policy or a confirmation of cover from your own insurance company. In addition, the helmet requirement has been extended to all minors. Helmets are also advisable for adults for their own safety. It is forbidden to ski under the influence of alcohol.
