No place can beat the Dolomites when it comes down to the combination of scenery, ambiance, food and skiing.. oh, skiing. And within the Dolomites, Arabba is by far the best place to make a base from which to explore Sella Ronda, Marmolada, Val Badia, Fassa, Gardena and Lagazuoi/Armentarola. Arabba is THE place in the Dolomites. Snowsure and always a couple of degrees colder than villages in the neighbouring valleys.
Only drawback: in December-January, the village, deep down the valley (shielded to the south by the Porta Vescovo/Marmolada massif) receives 30 minutes of sunlight. Not a good base if you have kids or non skiers waiting for you. The Dolomiti Superskipass doesn't come cheap, but

Arabba is a high up resort in the Dolomites, always lots of snow, on the Sella Ronda circuit, so giving access to endless skiing - some through trees, others wide, lots of challenging runs. Incredibly sceanic! Arabba is, in my mind, one of the best places for off-piste skiing because of the the landscape in Dolomiti! I highly recommend skiing in the Dolomites and in particular Arabba if you seek a smattering of good restaurants but not full on apres-ski. Enjoy!

Arabba is my favourite ski resort in Dolomites. The majority of the slopes are black and red. I would recommend Arabba mainly for advanced skiers. Arabba has the best connectivity to Sella Ronda, Marmolada, Drande Guerra ski tour from all ski resorts in Dolomites. Apres ski is very limited, basically there is no restaurant, only few bistros or caffeterias there. The views from the mountains are really spectacular!
Review by Martin from Liege on Thursday Jan 28th. Visited Arabba in january 2010 as couple
The skiing was fantastic. Great snow, great pistes. Piste map is hopeless but doing the Sella Ronda is a breeze as it is well signed in both directions and although we didn't do the Sella Ronda twice in one day we could have done. We found the way to the Marmolada was slow so do it first thing and then head off round the SR. Equiptment hire is cheap. Food is excellent. Mountains spectacular, like they've been instructed to impress.

Great scenery, great links and good skiing. Arabbas own mountain is a little gem and you must do the Marmolada but check the weather first. The Corvara side is full of mostly blue and easy red crusing runs and lovely restaurants for the days when the legs are tired. Arabba is not a place for those expecting boisterous apres-ski activity. There is little to do other than make the most of the mainly hotel accommodation. The Portovescovo is a fine 3 star hotel with good food and access to the slopes with ski-in/ski-out if snow allows. A day in Cortina is recommended and at 45 mins away and on the Dolomiti pass youd be foolish not to!!
