The Ladins have always called it this, from the time when there were a few mud tracks and no ski-lifts.

The Sellaronda in winter was the circuit on skis around the Sellagroup, a mountain range in the Dolomites (Unesco World Heritage Site), across the 4 passes, which the Ladins used in order to keep in contact with the other inhabitants in the area.

Nowadays the name still means the circuit around the Sella massif but it has also come to indicate what amounts to a sort of merry-go-round for skiers, the only one of its kind, a series of ski-lifts and downhill runs, all linked to one another and set against a background of woods, rocky peaks and expanses of snow that is no exaggeration to call extraordinary.

Joining the skiing circuit is easy: just follow the roads that take you to one of the five villages around the Sella mountain:

The length of the circuit, including both, ski lifts and ski runs, is a little less than 40 km.

For the Sellaronda ski tour you need the Dolomiti Superski ski pass.

But, because it is high up in the Dolomiti mountains, you need to check the weather forecast in order to avoid running into snowfalls or high winds which can turn what is supposed to be an enjoyable day out into an unpleasant and risky enterprise, with the danger of getting stranded. Any skier interested in doing the Sellaronda route must be fit, even if the runs themselves are of middling difficulty rather than advances.

The time spent on chairlifts and cable cars is about two hours altogether, without counting the time spent queuing for them or having a break in one of the many refuges dotted along the circuit.

Some more instructions and info: you are advised to start the skitour no later than 10.00 in the morning, although it is a good idea to start even earlier, especially if it is the first time you have tried it. Another word of warning: you must reach the last pass by 15.30 otherwise you will miss the last chairlifts, cable cars or gondolas; they close between 16.00 and 16.30.

All of the runs together take about one and a half hours, depending on how good a skier you are.

The Sella Ronda runs going anticlockwise are marked in green and the clockwise runs are marked in orange.

Brief summary of the Sella Ronda (Селларонда) starting from Val Gardena and going clockwise:

Starting from Selva di Val Gardena: The "Costabella" chair lift and then the "Dantercëpies I & II" cable car take to above the Gardena pass and from here you ski down to the village of Colfosco where the "Borest" cable car brings you to Corvara. Using the "Boè" cable car and then skiing down, you reach Campolongo pass.

The chairlift "Campolongo" takes you to Bec de Roces where the run to Arabba starts. At Arabba take the new char lift "Arabba Fly - nr.8" to the other side of the town, then the chairlitfs "Portados" and "Carpazza". After skiing down to the chairlift "Fodom" you can take this and then the chair-lift "Lezuo" (Sass Becè) and you reach Belvedere / Pordoi pass.

Belvedere - Sellaronda

The ski run takes you down to Pian Frataces (Lupo Bianco) and from here you go up (Cabel car "Pradel - Rodella" and chairlift "Cavazes - Grohmann") to Passo Sella.Sassolungo (Сассолунго) - Sellaronda
Col Rodella, Sassolungo

A long skirun brings us below the Piz Seteur, who can be reached via chairlift "Sole". The ski run "Falck" takes you down to the valley station of the "Piz Seteur" chairlift at Plan de Gralba. From there you can already see the last ski lift, one has to take to get to Selva: the ski lift "Senoner". The ski run leads to the very short chairlift "Fungeia". A SPECIAL TIP: once you get off the top, go down the ski slope and then immediately left, the woods along to "Freina" ski slope, directly to the center of Selva/Wolkenstein.

You have covered 13.518 metres on ski lifts and you have skied 23.100 metres of ski runs of the Dolomiti Superski skiing region. Total: 36 km and 618 m. Not bad!

Sellaronda: If you go anticlockwise (green arrows)

these are the average times for the ski lifts:
from Selva di Val Gardena to the Passo Sella:ca. 45 minutes
from Pian Frataces (Lupo Bianco) to the Passo Pordoi / Belvedere:ca. 20 minutes
from Arabba to the Campolongo / Bec de Roces:ca. 15 minutes
from Corvara to the Passo Gardena / Dantercëpies:ca. 45 minutes

Take the chair lifts "Arabba Fly - nr.8", the "Burz - Nr. 5", the "Le Pale - Nr.6" and then there is a quick run down to Passo Campolongo. Another chair lift up to Costarotta and then down to Corvara. In Corvara you take a cable car and a chair lifts towards Colfosco, where a comfortable cabin lifts bring you to Malga Cir short above the Gardena pass. From here you take the chair lift ValSetus and you are at 2,280 metres from where you ski down to the Gardena Pass. Here you take another chair lift and you arrive at Dantercëpies where you ski down to Selva, where you’re started from.
