Ski holidays in Corvara & Colfosco

The most sought after villages in the Dolomites, in the heart of the Sella Ronda circuit

Corvara and Colfosco are delightful villages nestled in the Alta Badia region of the Dolomites and have been enjoyed by British skiers for many years. Ideally located on the Sella Ronda circuit, they have easy access to the main slopes including connections to Arabba, Selva, Val di Fassa and the exhilarating Marmolada glacier. The local ski areas of La Villa, Pedraces and San Cassiano also boast superb skiing amidst inspiring scenery. Corvara (1568m) at the foot of the dramatic Mt.Sassongher and two mountain passes - the Passo Gardena and Passo Campolongo - offers a range of boutique shops and cafes, and some great après-ski bars such as the 'El Murin' which you can ski back to and dance there in your ski boots. There’s an indoor ice-stadium too. Colfosco is a pretty village next door to Corvara, which shares the same welcoming atmosphere and is just as well placed to maximise the vast skiing opportunities the Alta Badia ski region has to offer.

Colfosco

There’s a lot more to Colfosco – close to the slopes of Passo Gardena - than just a link with the legendary Sella Ronda circuit! Or just being neighbouring Corvara’s “little brother” a mile or so away. This delightful village in the Alta Badia region of the stunning Dolomites, with its Gothic church,  may be smaller and quieter, but it has a distinct charm of its own and some good hotels and restaurants. Apart from the Sella Ronda, the best local skiing is “up the road” at Corvara, taking in the excellent “local” slopes of La Villa, Pedraces, and San Cassiano. Both villages also have access to the ski areas of Arabba, Selva, Val di Fassa and the iconic Marmolada glacier. Colfosco is the final destination for one of the great off-piste descents in the Dolomites – the Val Mezdi (Mid-day Valley).  But do take a guide and be prepared to turn back if the steep start of the run puts you off!  It quickly levels out, and by the time you have reached Colfosco, you’ll have descended well over 1200 vertical metres (almost 4,000 feet) – and skied one of Italy’s classic runs.

Beginners skiing in Corvara & Colfosco

The best place to head off to on your first day is to take the Borest chair next to the Boe gondola from Corvara to the Colfosco ski area. Here, amidst some of the most impressive mountain scenery, is a great wide open area with lots of long blue runs perfect for finding your ski legs.

Intermediate skiing in Corvara & Colfosco

Intermediates are spoilt for choice in the Alta Badia ski area. The Boe gondola connects all the main pistes leading to the Sella Ronda circuit, which has a large selection of good long reds as well as some challenging steep runs found at the top of the Portavescovo in Arabba, and the Costorata red which takes you through the Passo Campolungo.

Advanced skiing in Corvara & Colfosco

For advanced skiers, the Sella Ronda is a must, and the famous Col Pradat black run down the back bowl of the Sassongher mountain is a challenge for most and a great experience in fresh powder.

Snowboarding in Corvara & Colfosco

Snowboarders can enjoy boarder cross, rails and jumps at the snow park at the Piz Sorega plateaux between the slopes of 'La Freina' and 'Ciampai'.
