A brilliant ski area, wherever you choose to stay in the Dolomites.
+1 You don't go to Arraba for the bustling night life & après-ski. You can walk around the village in 10 mins. Half a dozen bars (Petes bar) & a couple of restaurants. Most of the "night life" is hotel based. The skiing, however is superb, as DHD says, the village is on a major junction of the SR & is the closest access to the Marmolada Glacier, when it's open. We didn't go into Cortina town, so can't comment, but the Cinque Torre (spelling?) ski area is stunning.

Yes, cinque torres is lovely, but you can ski it all in a couple of hours,
We stayed in the chalet above Bar Peter a couple of years back - well handy!

Selva is the pick of the bunch. Been coming here for 15 years with good reason.

Not me. You'll note the quotation marks. A classic line delivered by a Welshman attempting to buy bombardinos in Switzerland. ;-)
