Val di Fassa 1-day or multi-day ski passes allow you to ski in the whole valley and to do the wonderful Skitour Panorama, the tour of Val di Fassa par excellence. You’ll enjoy 39 lifts and 70 km of ski slopes in the 6 ski areas of Val di Fassa (Belvedere, Col Rodella, Pordoi, Ciampac, Buffaure and Catinaccio) and in the Carezza ski area.
On the other hand, with Dolomiti Superski ski passes you can also ski in the other 14 ski resorts of the Dolomites, which means 450 lifts and more than 1200 km of ski slopes. For the famous Sellaronda, the tour around the Sella Group, you need a Dolomiti Superski ski pass, as well as to ski on Marmolada or reach the adjacent valleys (Val Gardena, Val Badia and Arabba).
No, the “smallest” 1-day ski pass is Val di Fassa, which let you ski in all ski areas of the valley (Ciampac, Buffaure, Catinaccio, Belvedere, Col Rodella and Pordoi) and in the Carezza ski area. Whereas, if you want to ski just half day, you can buy a morning or afternoon ski pass for the ski areas Ciampac-Buffaure.
If you want to ski in both ski areas, in the Ciampac-Buffaure area and in the Belvedere-Col Rodella-Pordoi area, then you need to buy at least a Val di Fassa ski pass.
Whereas for non-skiers the only option, in addition to the Dolomiti Superski points value card, is to purchase separate round-trip tickets for both lifts. There is no cumulative ticket.
