The White War is the name given to the fighting in the high-altitude Alpine sector of the Italian front during the First World War, principally in the Dolomites. The front stretched from Bovec in Slovenia to the top of the Stelvio Pass, around 400 km. in length. More than two-thirds of this conflict zone lies at an altitude above 2,000m.
The Passo Pordoi, together with all the other passes of the Dolomites, was fiercely contested. On the eastern slopes of the Passo Pordoi, the Austria-Hungarian/German war memorial looks across to the Marmolada Glacier, where Austrian soldiers built quarters in glacier tunnels, forming an "ice city".
Today the morning mist slowly disperses across the Passo Pordoi and the road to Arabba. The switchbacks here reach epidemic proportions with one of the highest concentrations of hairpins anywhere in these mountains.
Do road engineers charge extra for hairpins?
Thirty-three in less than ten kilometres, that’s 3.5 turns per kilometre.
I think they might.
