Ski holidays in Cortina D’Ampezzo

The most fashionable ski resort in Italy

There’s only one! The Olympic resort of Cortina D’Ampezzo is one of the most filmed, photographed, skied and visited resorts in the Italian Alps. Located east of the Sellaronda circuit, it’s not called the 'Queen of the Dolomites' for nothing. It’s renowned for the excellent selection of skiing as well as superb accommodation, bars, restaurants and shopping. The main skiing areas are the Cortina Cube (Socrepes, Faloria and Mietres), Tofana, and Lagazuoi - 5 Torri, with plenty of challenging runs as well as some of the most amazing views. The areas are either linked by the impressive network of lifts or local ski buses and in Winter 2021 saw a number of new and improved lifts cutting down queues and CO2 emissions. The Tofana area has a women's downhill World Cup run, which Cortina hosts each January and this winter will hold the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in February, inviting some of the worlds best skiers for an event not to be missed. For people-watchers, the evening highlight is the passeggiata (stroll) along the Corso Italia by fur-and-jewellery clad visitors from Milan and Venice wandering through antique shops, designer boutiques and bars.

Beginners skiing in Cortina

The Socrepes area of the mountain has wonderful nursery slopes and is one of the best beginner's areas in the Dolomites with some great progression slopes.

Intermediates skiing in Cortina

The runs at Tofana are short but great for cruising. You will want to ski a few runs a couple of times as the scenery is breathtaking and this area normally has the best snow.

Advanced skiing in Cortina

Advanced skiers will enjoy the Lagazuoi Cinque Torri area where you will find a large selection of red runs and some challenging blacks with great north-facing snow. Another great area to head for is the 'hidden valley' red run from the Passo Falzarego cable-car, and of course you have to try the famous Sella Ronda.

Snowboarding in Cortina

There is a terrain park at Faloria with kickers, rails and a half-pipe open to skiers and boarders.
