The Mittagstal valley is one of the legendary off-piste runs in the Dolomites. The valley crosses the entire Sella massif in a south-north direction.

The striking Sella massif looks like an impregnable fortress. The famous Sellaronda runs around the entire stock in both directions. The Pordoijoch and the gondola lift to the summit of the Sass Pordoi are usually simply left behind by piste skiers. Yet the valley station can be reached almost comfortably with a chairlift from the ski area. The last 150 m are then covered on foot. The cable car takes climbers in summer and freeriders in winter up to just under 3,000 m in one go without supports. The Terrace of the Dolomites, as the summit is also called, cannot be topped in terms of views. The ski run through the Mittagstal valley is one of the great classics in the Dolomites. With only a good 100 metres of ascent, you reach a magnificent descent through a wild valley.

Traumhaft schöne Tour. Leider war wenig Schnee und ziemlich fest. Aber die Abfahrt war griffig und der Schnee hatte etwas aufgefirnt. Danke für die Eindrücke vorab.
