The Apre Ski scene in the Marmolada Glacier is fairly quiet, with most of it being hotel and bar based in both of the resorts. There are a few more lively bars in Arabba that offer a bit of a party atmosphere for those who want to have fun. Both the resorts have a number of good restaurants, which serve a range of traditional and Italian cuisine. There is also a swimming pool and an ice rank in Arabba. Both resorts have a couple of shops selling a range of goods and have equipment for hire.


The Marmolada Glacier contains the resort villages of Arabba and Malga Ciapela that are both linked together. The majority of the runs are best suited for beginners and intermediates, experts only have a few good black runs at Arabba, as well as some good off-pistes that will need some searching to find them. Snowboarders have a few great runs and off-pistes to choose from, as well as two good snow parks. Apres Ski is a little on the quiet side in both of the resorts, with Arabba having a livelier nightlife and more non-ski activities on offer. This is a great place for families to go on a skiing holiday, with many runs being suitable for children and novices.
