Marmolada (Marmoleda) lift to Punta Rocca across glacier, Dolomites, Italy, Europe.
The lift on Marmolada ascends to Punta Rocca station above glacier, in Italy. From Malga Ciapela village, take a spectacular lift on Marmolada (Queen of the Dolomites) above the biggest (and only skiable) glacier in the Dolomiti: Ghiacciaio della Marmolada. Known as Marmoleda in Ladin, the highest peak in the Dolomites rises to 3343 meters (10,968 feet) elevation. Top station Punta Rocca gives a very exciting view of the surrounding mountains. The World War I museum at Serauta lift station describes the amazing City of Ice (Die Eisstadt, 1917), where Austrian soldiers inside the Marmolada Glacier built quarters in tunnels extending 12 kilometers with a vertical drop of over 1000 meters! Nine thousand Austrian and Italian soldiers died on the front line in a futile stalemate on and around Marmolada over 2 years. Find lift info at Funiviemarmolada.com. The Dolomites are part of the Southern Limestone Alps, in northern Italy, Europe. UNESCO honored the Dolomites as a natural World Heritage Site in 2009.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
