The so-called "Great War 1915-18 Ski Tour" (known also with its German name "Gebirgsjägerskitour" and with the Italian one "Giro Sciistico della Grande Guerra") is a marvellous circular ski route of a certain landscape and historic interest that winds through different valleys and ski areas of the Dolomiti Superski in the Provinces of Belluno and Bolzano-Südtirol on the most representative places of the ancient military front between the Reign of Italy and the Austrian Hungarian Empire during WW1.
The Great War 1915-18 Ski Tour offers spectacular views on some of the most beautiful and famous peaks of the Dolomites UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site (like: Civetta, Nuvolau-Averau, Pelmo, Lagazuoi, 5Torri, Lagazuoi, Sassongher, Sella, Marmolada, Tofane and others) and many original war remnants (trenches, firing positions) on a loop route that revolves around the Col di Lana (also known as "Blutberg" which means "Mount of Blood"; it is located in the Municipality of Livinallongo del Col di Lana, Agordino area, Province of Belluno), the symbol of the Great War in the Dolomites. Since the tour encompasses several valleys and ski areas (Ski Civetta, Lagazuoi 5 Torri-Cortina d'Ampezzo, Alta Badia and Arabba-Marmolada), in order to complete the Great War 1915-18 Ski Tour guests need to buy a Dolomiti Superski ski pass instead of the valley ones; the tour is suitable for skiers with an average-high level of skiing ability.
