A Panoramic 28 mile Ski Circuit around a mountain range called the Sella Group. It can be skied both clockwise and anti clockwise. we chose clockwise as this is the more challenging and higher route. the slopes are all blues and reds, with one black that can be bypassed if need be. we started from a place called Campitello Di Fassa where you take a huge gondola to the top of the first slope. (There's plenty more start places depending on where your stopping) Them just follow the orange sign's (clockwise) Or Green (anticlockwise) There are plenty of restaurant's and refreshment stops around the route. The views are amazing and the sking brilliant, would recommend an early start as this can be a full days sking to enjoy the mountains to the full. would not recommend for beginners. Intermediate and above. They advise you to get to your last ski lift by 3.30pm to avoid getting stuck in the wrong resort. ENJOY.
