Marmolada Funivie | Sciare in Marmolada_1

From Punta Rocca, it begins “La Bellunese”, one of the most spectacular ski slopes of the Dolomites, which passes on Marmolada glacier and reach the Fedaia Pass, descending then to Malga Ciapela. A 12 Km-long descent, but also an itinerary rich in charm and dreamy landscapes. The slope is always well covered by snow, thanks to its altitude, and its large and characterised by an intermediary gradient.


Grotto of the Madonna in Punta Rocca’s station

In Punta Rocca station there is the Grotto of the Madonna: it’s a cave similar to those dug by soldiers in 1916-1917 as shelter from the elements and the enemy. The grotto is a symbol of peace and here you can admire the statue of the Madonna that was consecrated by Pope John Paul II during his visit to Marmolada on August 26th, 1979. Holy Mass can be celebrated upon previous reservation.

The Museum of the Great War – Museo Marmolada Grande Guerra 3000 m, is entirely dedicated to the life of soldiers. Through a didactic and sensory itinerary, visitors can understand how terrible were the life conditions of soldiers in that period. The museum is located at 3000 m, on the second floor of Serauta’s cable car station. It is accessible also to people with special needs. From the wide windows, you can observe the tunnels dug by soldiers during WWI. The museum is in fact located right on the same places where Italian and Austro-Hungarian soldiers fought each other.

The legendary “City of Ice”, one of the topics of our museum, was a labyrinth inside the glacier, composed by 12 km of tunnels, inhabited by 200 Austro-Hungarian soldiers, who found here a shelter from Italian attacks, avalanches, blizzards and cold.
