- A fantastic route with 100% unobstructed view of the Marmolada; catch the gondola in Arabba and hike the Viel del Pan back to Passo Pordoi; nice hutta at the half way point to grab a beer. A great/iconic hike--most will have no problems; elevation gain/drop is minimal.Written May 17, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The cable car Funivia Pass Pordoi is for most people a very convenient way to get within an hours walk of the highest peak in Sella group, the Piz Boe. I used it to descent to give my knees a rest. The 4 min glide down is almost too short to enjoy the panorama but is certainly more comfortable than a 40 min knee crunching walk.
The ticket for the descent can be purchased right in front of the access gate. It’s 9€ for a single descent but wearing one of the single use ‘proper’ facemasks is mandatory in the cable car which meant I had to buy one for 50 cents at the bar opposite. My Buff scarf was not allowed.
There is a huge parking allotment at the base station reserved for cable car passengers. It was completely empty when I arrived at 8:30am but rammed full to the brim on my return at 1pm. If you like me prefer hiking up and taking the cable car down feel free to park there. You don’t have to display a ticket or anything.Written August 4, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- If you do nothing else whilst traveling around The Dolomites, make sure you visit here. The cable car tales you to the summit some 2950m above sea level. The views from the top are magnificent.
There was a fair bit of snow around when I visited in July, but the temperature at the summit was 17.6 degrees, but actually felt warmer.
The cost of the cable car is 19 euros 50 cents, which reduces to 16 euros if you are in a group of 20.
There is a cafe at the top along with toilet facilities, so you can stay as long as you wish.Written July 12, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We rode 60 km from Mazzin to Weissbach and back on a Sunday. The piste was pretty crowded the first 10 km from Canazei. As you reach Predazzo, the valley becomes broader and sunnier. The „climb“ retour was not as hard as expected. If you have a race bike you can „push“ the retour for a bit of extra exercising.Written July 26, 2020
- The hike from Sass Pordoi to Piz Boè is all done above an altitude of 3000 meters, where the lunar-like landscape and the view are spectacular. You can get to the starting point either taking the cableway from Pass Pordoi or hiking uphill from there. Once at Sass Pordoi, there is a short path downhill till Forcella Pordoi, a bit of hike on gravel and then a final challenging stretch climbing up to the top of Piz Boè. Some parts are quite exposed but there are ropes to help you and it’s not particularly complicated. From Sass Pordoi it takes about one hour and a half to get to the top. I know there is even another route to follow but I’m not acquainted with that one. At the top there is Rifugio Capanna Fassa, where you can enjoy the view while you’re eating/ drinking something. Definitely a must if you are close by!Written July 10, 2021
- Fantastic spot with a wide choice of ski runs for all abilities. The views are incredible. The restaurant can also be accessed by walkers (carefully!) in the snow, by cable car from Alba or Canazei. Service is friendly and quick, food good and reasonable prices for the location - it gets very busy but its such a beautiful spot.Written January 5, 2020
- It is a nice palce to have a short stop unless you wish to take the cable car or a hiking trip around. Ther are not many dams where you get a chance to drive on the dam's wall, so for us it was a nice experience to drive on it. Water color is beautiful and views are great. I would suggest to make a short stop at both ends of the water reservoir. Free parking was available.Written December 25, 2019
- OK, we came to this place under difficult and challenging circumstances (last saturday and sunday were very snowy) and that will have factored in this review.
The place isn't that showy, lighting is strip lighting/LED, the breakfast (to be honest) wasn't that great. Room was good, other facilities were also good.
But, the managers were great. We arrived very tired and stressed after finding the route along Piz Boe ridge to be at about our limit in the heavy snow with near zero visibility. We know what we're doing, but that day was near our limit. There were virtually no other walkers on the mountain that weekend....in fact we met the 4 other walkers on the way down to the cable car the next morning.
Ludovico quickly sorted out our gear (dried our boots in 2 hours, totally dry), got our waterproofs etc. dry in the drying room and discussed our plans with us, giving us excellent advice. He was obviously concerned about the weather to a great degree - it even took him by surprise. His advice turned out to be excellent, and we left the place the next morning taking a safe route to the Funovia (again, very poor weather conditions, 100m visibility max. 30cm snow.)Written September 15, 2019
- Pass below the world heritage mountains. Very crowded, lots of coaches but we found a lovely cafe serving salad etc.Written September 23, 2019
- nice ride with great views of the marmolada including glaciers. from there take the belvedere walk until lake fedaia.Written August 17, 2022
- The decor on this house is over the top, gingerbread, alpine, murals, it has it all. It is really a shop, a metzgerei (butcher or maybe processed meat), as I recall, and we did not go in, not needing anything on that line. Definitely worth a picture, close to the church, but nothing is far away!Written September 2, 2017
- We are keen skiers. Skiing here is mostly for intermediates but there are some gentler blues in places like Alba. It's stunningly pretty and the sun shines a lot. On slope food and drink is good too, both price and quality.Written April 13, 2022
- We skied here the day after doing the Sella Ronda and it was perfect. Lots of easy/intermediate runs that were long a beautiful. Plenty of food options. We only skied in the morning since the afternoon has been slushy from the warmer weather. This would also be a beautiful area to hike in the spring/summer/fall. The Gondola was a 5 minute walk from our hotel in Alba. There is also paid parking and a great place to rent your equipment at the base ( Ski Paolo)Written March 30, 2019
