Dolomites Webcam

Dolomites Webcams allow you to monitor in real-time the snow and weather conditions of several locations in the Dolomites. On this page, I wanted to provide you with webcams primarily placed in mountain huts and areas of great 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, Dolomites Webcam will provide useful information on the current weather conditions.

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 altitudes presents some problems, mainly caused by environmental conditions. Or, simply, the mountain hut is closed.

Webcam Nuvolau and Averau

The webcam shows Mount Nuvolau on the right, Averau on the left, and the Cinque Torri in the center.

At the summit of Nuvolau, at 2575 meters above sea level, stands the homonymous refuge against the sky.

Built in 1883 by the Austrian Alpine Club thanks to a donation from a baron from Saxony, it is today the oldest still functioning refuge in the Dolomites.

The refuge is easily reachable in summer via a comfortable trail. Once at the top, the panorama is breathtaking.

Webcam Ferrata Lipella

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 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 Marmolada

This camera provides a beautiful view of the Marmolada glacier, the highest mountain in the Dolomites. Punta Penia reaches an altitude of 3343 meters (10967,85 feet). To its right, sharply pointed, is the Gran Vernel, standing at 3210 meters.
On the left, in the distance, you can catch a glimpse of Lake Fedaia.

Known as “The Queen of the Dolomites,” the mountain is characterized by its distinctive glacier, the largest in the Dolomites. Unfortunately, in recent years, the glacier has been retreating at an accelerating pace due to climate change.

Webcam Cinque Torri

This webcam is located at the Averau Refuge and offers a view 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.

During the First World War, the Cinque Torri area was occupied by the Italian army, which established the headquarters of the artillery command there. Today, in the area of the Cinque Torri, you can visit the numerous trenches and positions that have been skillfully restored.

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 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 developed 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 on 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.
