Dolomites Ski Statistics
Both 2015/6 and 2016/17 were challenging ski seasons across Europe. The Dolomites Ski area performed better than many of its competitors due to it’s huge investment in programmed snow making systems.
The resulting quality of the ski slopes, especially at the beginning of the season, was amazing and highly praised by those that came to ski.
With over 9,320,678 passes sold in the 2015/6 season, a record season. As of 1 May 2017, the final date of the ski season ski pass sales were +1.6% year on year, with a -2% of lift clicks, and a -1.3% of ski days sold.
Stats in for the 2015/6 season, show that the total number of vertical meters covered by all the users skiing on the Dolomite Super Ski area was a staggering 40,248,810 kilometres vertical with the average daily ski pass elevation gain of around 4,220 m.
Never Ski the Same Ski Slope Twice
Statistically, skiers with a weekly Dolomite Super Ski pass used the same lift only 2.27 times during a typical 6 day/7 night ski vacation. This clearly illustrates the extensive nature and choice available to skiers. It also demonstrates a unique feature of the Dolomites ski area; the ability of undertake long ski journeys, crossing from one valley to another without having to take the same lift or trail/piste.
On the Inspired Italy Dolomites Ski Safari you never ski the same trail/piste twice, unless, of course you want to – the Marmalada is always an exception!
