What’s the difference between the ski pass Val di Fassa – Carezza and the Dolomiti Superski?
With the former you can ski in the ski area of the Fassa valley ( Buffaure, Catinaccio, Col Rodella, Ciampac and Belvedere except the Moena area where the season ticket Alpe Lusia/SanPellegrino is valid) and Carezza. With the Dolomiti Superski from the ski area of Buffaure – Ciampac you can enjoy over 500 km of slopes with your skis on. Particularly noteworthy is the possibility of accessing the Sellaronda from Buffaure, allowing you to go around the four Dolomite passes with skis on your feet, passing from the Gardena valley to the Badia valley, but also from Arabba up to Marmolada: at least 26 km of slopes (more than a thousand variations) that can be covered in about 5 hours.
