Dolomiti Superski Starts Season with €65m Spend Including New Lifts & Black Slope

The 49th ski season in the Dolomiti Superski region has got underway with the opening of lifts and slopes in the ski resorts of Kronplatz, 3 Cime Dolomites, Val di Fiemme and Obereggen  on Saturday, 26th November.

In total, 25 lifts and up to 60 km of slopes will be open. All the remaining ski resorts will kick-off their winter season a week later, on 3rd December 2022, Sellaronda included.

“The weather conditions of the past few days have been ideal for snowmaking while the fresh snowfall with up to 25 cm (10”) of fresh snow has wrapped the Dolomites in a white dress – just in time for the season opener,” said Andy Varallo, Chairman of Dolomiti Superski, who added, “The cold window, which allowed us to prepare the ski slopes for the start of the season, arrived just in time in mid-November.  Our ski resorts, which traditionally open on the last Saturday in November, were thus able to keep their promise to customers. And that gives us an additional motivation boost to start the new winter season.”

Most of the terrain open this weekend is at Kronplatz (33km of slopes) and Val di Fiemme (20km of slopes) with a few kilometres at each of the other early-opening centres.

Another 65 million Euros Invested

Dolomiti Superski resorts have invest 65 million Euros in lift and in improvements over the summer, with three new chairlifts.

They include new 6-seater chairlift Spitzbühel on the Alpe di Siusi, the 6-seater chairlift Campanil in Pampeago in Val di Fiemme and the 4-seater chairlift Cigolera-Cima Tognola in San Martino di Castrozza.

There’s also a new black run, “Soréga” in San Vigilio di Marebbe at Plan de Corones, and a new blue Campanil slope in Pampeago.

The ski lifts Doris at Haunold near San Candido and the skilift Dorflift  in Castelrotto were also renewed.

A new gondola lift to the Plose is still under construction and will not be put into operation until next year, while the “Tiers-Carezza” cabrio cable car will go back into operation after an interruption of several months.

In addition, numerous snowmaking systems have been renewed and expanded to make the most of the cold windows by using the latest technology for the optimal use of resources.

    > 25cm << of natural snow doesn't sound like much :-/ and without natural snow, what's the point…

    About the 65 millions spent, I wonder how much more expensive is the day pass now as a result? 😉
    and btw, I am not an investor, I don't work in the seilbahn industry, I am a skier instead, I come to admire the nature and the landscape with natural snow, not the 6-seater or a new gondola, I can see them already everywhere…
    I know this is to reduce the waiting lines… but were the additional cable cars really really necessary?

    As for snowmaking, is it a good use of resources to spend energy producing snow especially now?
    With energy prices high, and global warming isn’t this the time to save energy for our collective good?
    Are we households the ones who need to keep the heating low so that you can produce the snow?

    I still may come in the end to Dolomiti for vacations, but certainly not because of the artificial snow (which, as far as I am concerned, you can avoid producing altogether, if there's no snow I'd rather go hiking), rather because of the amazing hotels and the beautiful nature… And yet crossing fingers for real snow so we can have some nice turns in knee deep powder :).
