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 :-)

Alleghe info (Or elsewhere?)

I am thinking of trying to organise a week in Alleghe in the near future, early March probably. Also hoping to bring a small group to either PBBWUW or BB next season and having already been to Arabba I really ought to try Civetta before deciding which. In the interests of fairness, of course......and already ahead of the immediate reply I would expect.....would love to do 'the double' but having to save a 2 week trip for my retirement present.

Most of my plans would be hijacked from the stuff I have picked out of the pre BB thread so just hoping to get the exact logistical details correct in advance , or listen to any other suggestions. So far I have on my list of plans:

1. Ski Civetta area. An easy one.
2. Day to Marmolada and beyond. I know there is a bus but would I (we) catch that from the gondola or the village square? Or either? What sort of time do you have to be back to catch the return to Alleghe?
3. The day to San Pellegrino @admin sorted this year sounds good, can that be done by another bus, or is it a taxi job for a small group? To Falcade I assume?
4. Considering but not sure we would visit Cinque Torri, we did a bit round there from Arabba.
5. Test the produce at the brewery bar opposite the lift. Is it as tasty as their website suggests?
6. Visit Il Professore for ski hire wearing a snowheads buff. I think I have worked out where his shop is.

Flights don't suit the Civetta transfer service and not enough for a private transfer so will hire a small car.

Anything else we should definitely do or not do? Thanks for any replies and advice

8. Thursday nights is ice hockey night in the arena.

2 the pick up for the bus to marmolada is just off the town square by the Municipo (town hall). Took about 1/2 hour. Bus back was at about 16:30 and 17:00 from cable car station car park. Worth the day out.

Confusingly, I think the new gondola to Cortina lands in Pecol

Um! tricky one. There is a bus up the valley from Belluno to passo Falzarago. From there other busses and routes lead to Cinque Torri including a lift up the Lagazuoi. If you have a car then from Alleghe up to passo giau to the Fedara lift and hence enter the cinque torri from the Averau is an interesting alternative. There is an excellent gelateria in Selva on the way back.

Thanks for the correction. It’s all Greek to me.

The bus from Pescul (not Pecol!) to Fedare that @AL9000 mentioned drops you at the Fedare lift on the rear side of Cinque Torri which takes you up to the top at Averau. Costs €5 per person. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.altabadia.org/media/pescul-fedare.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjN572svfT1AhVOi1wKHUEZCVsQFnoECAgQAQ&usg=AOvVaw1WgZLIGLkIY4wxnASIPn88


Skiing from Alleghe to Pescul to get the bus is an easy way of getting to Cinque Torri. I presume when you mention the gelataria in Selva you are talking about Selva di Cadore and not Selva/Wolkenstein in Val Gardena?

Thanks for the info so far. Does anyone know if there are ski deposit lockers for rent anywhere around the top or bottom of the gondola? I know the pre bashers use the shuttle service from Europa so wouldn't need them, but may have spotted some en route up or down.

@Alastair Pink, yes, we call into that gelateria quite often when returning to Alleghe (actually Sala a bit down the valley) after a day's climbing. It is a very pretty village with wonderful views. Like a few Dolomite ski villages you do need a bus to get you to the skiing.

To me this is Selva as opposed to Wolkenstein in the German/Ladin speaking area (just trying to stick to the tradditional names and the names on my maps)

@johnE, "There is an excellent gelateria in Selva on the way back." - do you mean Cafe Mozart? (on a corner of the main road, sometimes with a BIG dog sitting outside..)

@albob, Sorry, I think it is called "Bar Gelateria Val Fiorentina", but it is more or less at the junction opposite the church. Google maps gives the coordinates as 46.451522289126586, 12.035193963360186.

Ahh - I was in Cafe Mozart last week and in my best Italian ordered what I thought was a 'fancy' hot chocolate.
A large dish turned up consisting of Chocolate ice-cream covered in a large dollop of whippy cream in a bath of hot custard...
Did I send it back?? -- NO way Very Happy

Shall look up your recommendation 'next time'..

Is the link to rental lockers next to the ski pass office and sent to me by the tourist office

Thanks for the info all, hopefully it will help others and will definitely help me in the future but my 5th March trip to Alleghe for this year has somehow turned into a trip to Flachau........

@Klamm Franzer, thanks for the reassurance. Alleghe will stay on 'the list' but the forecast (accepting nothing is certain beyond a few days) and snow so far this season tipped the balance. Finding a decent price for half board in Flachau helped too

Bumped for another question.. ..
Once you take away the Snowheads during PBBWUW how busy are the bars in Alleghe?

We guessed wrong with which week PBBWUW would be and can't change our flights, but the place, skiing and prices for Alleghe are still tempting. We don't want parties, just not to be the only customers. I am thinking the brewery bar at Garni Esperia, the wine bar and our hotel bar would be on the short list of options. There are 6 of us so we will make some of our own entertainment and something akin to the Portavescovo Stube level of custom and noise would be fine.
Or should we just pay a bit extra and carry on past to Arabba? I have it in my head that a lot of visitors to Alleghe would be more local and drivers, with Arabba just a bit busier.
