The time of the year has come for many of the Austrian Ski Resorts to open – many have opened some time ago, thanks to their glaciers. Here is a list of when all resorts are opening, and those that are already opened.

Tre Cime and Cortina D’Ampezzo will start their ski season early

Two of the resorts of Dolomiti Superski will start early this season due to great snowfalls. They are Cortina D’Ampezzo and Tre Cime (Three Peaks) – Both areas are part of the Dolomiti Superski lift ticket, that access over 1200 acres of terrain under one ticket.

The saunas and outdoor swimming pools at the spas of the exclusive hotels on the Seiser Alm mountain pasture are surrounded by unparalleled natural landscapes.


The mountain pastures of Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm offer excellent toboggan runs with spectacular views of the surrounding mountaintops Sassolungo/Langkofel and Sassopiatto/Plattkofel.

Val di Fiemme, Arabba, Civetta and Kronplatz are planning their opening for 25th November, followed by Obereggen on December 1st; Alta Badia, Carezza, Marmolada, San Martino di Castrozza/Passo Rolle, Alpe Lusia/San Pellegrino on December 2nd; Val Gardena, Alpe di Siusi, Val di Fassa on December 6th; and December 7th on Valle Isarco.

Dolomiti Superski has an excellent snow-making capacity, with more than 90% of the pistes covered, if nature is not generous, with artificial snow. This season seems that a great snowfall has fallen to help the start of the season, which is great news!
