Arabba Resort Info
Arabba is found in the midst of the Sella Ronda circuit, with a total of 175km of runs. The whole area offers great intermediate skiing, but Arabba is best known for the challenges it provides for better skiers and boarders. There are great steeps, combined with a good snow record and direct access to the Marmolada glacier. You'll also find some of the best heli-skiing in the Alps. It isn't a great place if you are looking for lots of off-snow activities, while for young kids it's really quite lacking. The resort itself isn't exceptional - small and uncommercial, with some reasonable eateries and accommodation. People are really here for the skiing/boarding, though. Après-ski shouldn't trouble visitors too late into the night, with only two venues of note.
Overall, Arabba is a resort geared towards the better skiers/boarders and doesn't offer a whole heck of a lot else. Some have described it as being an Italian Argentière…

Snow Overview - Italy (snow news updated 08-Dec-2013)
Skiers and snowboarders in Italy have enjoyed sunny skies this week, and although there has been no new snow, more resorts are opening up.
Bardonecchia (40cm/60cm) began the new season on Thursday 5th December with four lifts in operation. There was good skiing on-piste on offer under clear skies and more terrain is set to open throughout the weekend.
After a successful bonus weekend last week Sauze d’Oulx (60cm/100cm) will re-open this weekend for the start of the season proper.
Elsewhere there are still excellent snow bases at both Val Senales (20cm/280cm) and Passo Tonale (50cm/200cm) despite strong sun throughout the week. The best riding at both resorts can be found on-piste with sun-baked snow off piste.
European Weather Outlook
The weather over the weekend and into next weekend is forecast to remain sunny for the majority of European skiing destinations. The good news is that mid-mountain temperatures should remain around freezing over the weekend, although it is set to get mild again next week.
Strong winds have affected the Scottish resorts this week, with some damage reported at Nevis Range. Some fresh snow could land over the weekend.
Fresh snow has already been reported in Norway and Sweden too, and more snow could land over the weekend.
