Interconnecting Alleghe and Selva Di Cadore under the shadow of the Civetta massif, the Ski Civetta is a family-friendly ski region with 50 pistes totaling 72km that are served by 22 lifts. With an annual snowfall avering 6m, the best Ski Ciivetta snowboarding can be found during the months of January and February. Most of the snowboarding is laps on the upper half of the ski area from the Col dei Baldi summit resulting in laps of 500m vertical.

The Ski Civetta ski resort is part of the Dolomiti Superski region which has over 1,200km of pistes spread over 12 valleys that served by 450 lifts. While a single skipass gives access to the Dolomiti Superski region, keep in mind that the 12 valleys are not all interconnected and you may need bus transport between valleys. Also, the snowfall in this southernly ski region is known to vary greatly season to season. Keep in mind that there is limited off-piste snowboarding in the Dolomiti Superski region -- it is prohibited in most areas and guides are highly-recommended in the others.

There are a few good off-piste lines at Ski Civetta. The best off-piste line to explore is from Monte Fertazza down to Alleghe.

After a long morning of snowboarding at Ski Civetta, the best bet for lunch is Chalet Col bei Baldi. And, for apres ski, try stopping at the mid-mountain Fontanabona Piani de Prezze.

PRO TIP: head up valley 12km to Ciapela to take cable car to Marmolada (Könign see Dolomiten) at 3,265m for the single steep piste descent (1,800m) back to base area. Or, it is possible to interconnect north over to Arraba for lunch even!

Overall, Civetta is the 21st most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 57 snowboarding resorts in Italy. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Civetta including Cortina d'Ampezzo, Val Gardena, 3 Zinnen Dolomites, Arabba, Val di Fassa and Kronplatz.
