Apres Ski in Arabba-Marmolada

Arabba is no party resort but it has pleasant places in which to eat and drink, both immediately after skiing and later at night. For non-skiers there is excellent walking in the woods around the resort and further away at castle Andraz.

Bars and Nightlife

On the slopes, Rifugio Bec de Roces ( www.becderoces.it ), Rifugio Burz (www.burz.it) and Rifugio Plan Boe (www.rifugio-planboe) are all locations for a final sundowner drink whilst listening to music and gazing at the Dolomite mountain scenery before skiing back home.

Mister X at the foot of the Burz slope provides a similar apres-ski scene back in the village.

For something a little bit louder and more lively, try Bar Peter in the middle of the village, opposite the Hotel Pordoi.

The Heidi Wine Bar and restaurant deeper into the village also plays music but has a more upmarket vibe.

Later on, La Stube Music Pub beneath the Porta Vescova hotel does what it say on the tin.


Bar Peter, Heidi and La Stube all provide food as well as music and drink.

There are also lots of good pizzerias and steak bars in the village such as Pico Cafe and Bar Heidi.

All the 3-star and 4-star hotels have restaurants, with the 4-star Evaldo Hotel Restaurant being the pick of the bunch for fine dining.

Arabba is very much a skier’s resort but there are some excellent walking paths in the woods above the village to the left of the Porta Vescovo ski area. There are short circular walks that should take between 45 minutes and 2 hours, and a longer one out to Renaz (also called Renac) from where a bus can take you back to Arabba.

You can also take a bus out to Passo Campolongo (1875m) from where you can walk up to the Rifugio Bec de Roces at 2076m (see above) and down again.

The most impressive site you can walk to is Castle Andraz, which at 1747m is the highest castle in Italy. Like Arabba, it’s in the Fodom valley but you will need your own car and snowshoes, because it’s a long way out of town.

The Grande Guerra circuit can also be a cultural tour as well as a ski tour. There are excellent museums with information about the fighting at Marmolada at the top of the second cable car, and at the top station of the Passo Falzarego-Lagazuoi cable car.
