Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Like it says above ? Anyone got piste maps cluttering up a drawer somewhere- I know you can get online maps but I like to pore over real maps.
Prefer Canazei area but happy for any .

I bought this last year and it's fantastic.

Really recommend it if you love planning your routes, especially if like me you have a nervous wife and need to check out the grade of each slope to ensure I don't scare her to death Happy

I know you said you didn't like on line...but:
http://www.opensnowmap.org/
or
https://skimap.org/

The first is very high quality and a great planning tool as you can get a cross sectional diagram of the piste slope profiles. It also has a route planning mode but I have not really sussed it out yet. The pistes are properly represented as to their actual shape and size, not just a squiggly line on the map.
The latter has some really nice photo based maps of Arabba which I think are a huge step forward from the horrible artists' impression type.

Like you, I prefer a paper map but technology does have some nice toys to play with. snowHead

You can print maps off from both of these resources. You could even print a map of your favourite piste onto a t-shirt.

Thanks but that is only the Sella part 1:25.000. They used to have a1:50.000 on the backside. and that covered a much larger area.
Some years ago I asked Tabacco, but they replied they were using their efforts on digital maps.
IMO they make the best maps in the eastern Alps for summer as well.
I will try to ask them about it again.

I am old school and like printed maps.

If you go into the catalogue- on the last page you see special maps. There the 1:50.000 ski map is.
Valli Landine e .......".
If they do repint it it is a must for those old school boys going to the area.

@albob,

Yes, thanks very much, but it might be the old 2. edition (the price is very cheap), I do have the old one (quite used and tapped together now).

Last time I asked Sportler - they told me it was out of print, when I ordered it.
And when i found some other web-shop they just send me the new smaller new Sella Ronda map even thought they had shown the o Valli Landine E Sella Ronda map. (that was some years ago).

If it is a new 2017 edition, updated with lifts an runs I will be most happy. Might just try to order an see what will happen.

Anyway its a great map if one goes that area. Very Happy

The answer form Tabacco here:

Dear H,
the map VSCI2 Sellaronda e Valli Ladine is the same (edition 2014).
This is Sportler: https://www.sportler.com/it/p/tabacco-carta-sciistica-valli-ladine-e-sellaronda-125.000-150.000-9851405?filtervariation_unit_1=1%3A25.000+%2F+1%3A50.000
Stanfords http://www.stanfords.co.uk/Sellaronda-Ski-Map-Val-Gardena-Alta-Badia-Arabba-Marmolada-Val-di-Fassa_9788883150951 has the old map.
Kind regards.

So i guess the lift over Arabba, and "newer" Canazei - Arabba runs may not be on the map yet, but for going further away it is a great map. Be aware that The Standfords link is just the small 1:25.000, while the Sportler link is the 1:50.000 (with the 1:25.00 on the other side).

That's a useful map to gauge the relative sizes of ski areas. The Sella Ronda compares favourably to the three Valleys and is a lot more extensive than Tignes Val d'isere.

Today I got my Tabacco map Valli Landine E Sellaronda from Sportler, and as I suspected the new transport-lift from one side of Arabba to the other side is not on it. Neither is the new gondola from Alba up to Col Di Rosc.

But the 1:50.000 map reaches from the motorway in west to Cortina in east including the Civetta- and Pellegrino skiarea in south and Ortisei and Abbazia de Sct. Croce. And that is nice if you want to make longer trips. Madeye-Smiley
