Dolomites Webcam allows you to see in real-time the snow and weather conditions of some locations in the Dolomites.
Installing webcams in tourist destinations is a common practice worldwide. For this webpage, I prioritized webcams located primarily in mountain huts and areas of high interest for hikers and climbers.
Dolomites Webcam, real-time weather condition
I start here with the webcams of Cortina d’Ampezzo, and then continue with the most frequented Dolomite areas by mountain enthusiasts. Whether you are a relaxed hiker or a skilled mountaineer, Webcam Dolomiti will provide useful information on the current weather conditions.
And if you want some tips on the importance of weather in the mountains, understanding the meaning of cloud shapes, and how to predict a possible sudden weather change, take a look at the weather page.
Returning to Webcam Dolomiti, please note that sometimes some of the cameras listed below are not working. This usually happens because maintaining and caring for these instruments at high altitude obviously presents some problems, mainly caused by environmental conditions. Or, simply, the mountain hut is closed.

Webcam – Dolomiti Southeast
The webcam installed at the top of Piccolo Lagazuoi offers a beautiful view towards the southeast. In the center, in the background, we see Mount Pelmo, also known as “el caregòn del Padreterno” (the Throne of God) in the Veneto region.
On the far right, the webcam shows us the famous northwest face of Civetta, the “wall of walls”. We can also see Croda da Lago, Lastoni di Formin, the small Cinque Torri, and Mount Averau and Croda Negra.
The large terrace of the Lagazuoi refuge is so famous for its breathtaking views of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomite peaks that it has appeared in several Italian and international magazines.
Webcam – Tofana di Rozes
Located on the panoramic terrace of Lagazuoi, this webcam allows us to check if there is still snow on the Giovanni Lipella via ferrata. The Lipella is a magnificent via ferrata that ascends the western slope of Tofana di Rozes. The route unfolds in a severe and majestic environment.
The via ferrata was built in 1967 by the mountain guides of Cortina.
The Castelletto Tunnel marks the beginning of the ferrata. The tunnel was originally built during World War I as part of the military fortifications in the region. The tunnel was constructed by soldiers under difficult conditions. The gallery rises in the darkness and humidity of the mountain’s interior, inevitably evoking thoughts of the hardships that those poor soldiers on both sides were forced to endure in vain.
Webcam – Cinque Torri
This webcam is located at the Nuvolao refuge and offers a view of the Cortina d’Ampezzo valley and, on the left, of the Cinque Torri group.
For a long time, the most famous Italian climbing club, the “Scoiattoli di Cortina,” has trained on the walls of the Cinque Torri.
At the top of Mount Nuvolau stands the oldest mountain hut in the Dolomites. In fact, the Nuvolau hut was inaugurated in 1883!
Dolomites Webcam – Marmolada
This camera offers a beautiful view of the Marmolada, the highest mountain in the Dolomites. Punta Penia reaches an altitude of 3348 m. To its right, pointed, is the Gran Vernel. The mountain is characterized by its distinctive glacier, the Marmolada Glacier, which has been receding in recent years due to climate change.
Below, to the left of the Marmolada, you can see the Col di Lana, also known as the “Col del sangue” (the Blood Mountain).
The sad nickname derives from the fact that on the Col di Lana, during the First World War, the harsh fighting left over 8,000 dead on the ground. If you are passionate about history, here is an interesting link to the War on the Col di Lana.
Dolomites Webcam – Cortina
Before moving on to other areas of the Dolomites, a small act of local pride. I couldn’t leave out a webcam image of the center of Cortina d’Ampezzo, my beautiful hometown. The eye is immediately drawn to the tall bell tower, which rises above the pedestrianized Corso Italia. In the background, we can see Mount Faloria and the Sorapìs.
Cortina d’Ampezzo has always been a prime location for mountain lovers, with its stunning landscapes, sports, and entertainment. However, it’s also a perfect destination for those who are interested in Italian fashion and shopping, as well as locally crafted items, art, jewelry, and antiques.
Webcam – Tre Cime di Lavaredo
This webcam is positioned at the Locatelli Hut, located approximately halfway along the loop around the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, iconic mountains that have become victims of their own success.
The webcam captures the mythical triad. On these walls, climbing routes have been traced that rightfully entered the history of mountaineering. The most famous route is the Comici – Dimai on the Cima Grande di Lavaredo, where I experienced a dangerous adventure.
Webcam – Malga Giau
This webcam is located at the cozy Malga Giau and is pointed towards the Lastoni di Formin and the Forcella Giau. In winter, the ascent to Mount Corvo Alto (or Monte Mondeval) is one of the most popular excursions for ski mountaineers. The route begins right near the malga and initially climbs to the Forcella Giau.
To the north of Malga Giau, there is also a splendid and easy itinerary for snowshoe lovers: to the Becco Muraglia with snowshoes.
The webcam allows us, in winter, to have an approximate idea of the amount of snow on the ground.
“Malga” is an Italian word that refers to a small rural building or hut used by shepherds and dairy farmers as a seasonal dwelling and as a place to process milk into cheese or butter. In English, it is commonly translated as “mountain dairy” or “alpine pasture”.
Webcam – Passo Rolle
Here we see the Passo Rolle and the famous silhouette of the Cimon della Pala. The Cimon della Pala is a mountain peak in the Pale di San Martino group of the Dolomites, located in northeastern Italy. It is also known as the “Cervino of the Dolomites” due to its distinctive pyramidal shape and prominence. At 3,184 meters (10,446 feet) tall, it is the highest peak in the group and one of the most famous mountains in the Dolomites. It is a popular destination for hikers and climbers, offering stunning panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and valleys.
Dolomites Webcam – Sass Pordoi
The Sass Pordoi overlooks the pass with the same name, and is called the “terrace of the Dolomites” for its characteristic flat shape at the top. In addition to numerous hiking trails, the mountain can be reached by the Sass Pordoi cable car. Many climbing routes develop on the south face, the most famous being the “Via Maria”, the sister of the “Devil of the Dolomites”, the mountain guide Tita Piaz who opened the route.
Webcam – Erto and Casso
Why is there a webcam of Erto on this page? It often happens that the sky is cloudy and too cold to climb in Cortina and Cadore, while in Erto the sky is clear. Knowing this, climbers can choose to travel there, and have the opportunity to climb that is not available at home.
I wanted to include a webcam from Erto in the Dolomites section because it is home to one of the most famous climbing crags in Italy, a historic crag.
In Erto, climbing is done in the famous Erto and Casso cliff, located just above the infamous Vajont dam. The Erto cliff offers about 200 climbing routes on limestone rock, with different difficulties suitable for all levels, from beginners to experts, but is famous for its numerous high-difficulty routes.
