Hotel Col Alto (Corvara)

  • The Dolomites Ski Area, Italy, Corvara & Colfosco

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Col Alto is one of our favourite hotels in the Dolomites. The location couldn’t be better in central Corvara and just 400 metres from the Boe gondola, which means you can head straight out and get on the fantastic Sellaronda ski area. There’s plenty going on in the traditional village and you can walk to bars, shops and restaurants. It might be hard to tear yourself away though. There’s a high standard throughout the hotel that’s been done up in a modern alpine style. We love the Iceberg Lounge Bar – grab a drink and catch up with friends before or after dinner. The food at the hotel is a very high standard. You can expect traditional South Tyrolean dishes with a modern twist. They go to great lengths to make sure the ingredients used are local so everything tastes fresh and authentic.

When it comes to relaxing, the Col Alto has you covered. The wellness centre is impressive and it’s easy to waste a few hours chilling out in the indoor pool. The herbal baths and Finnish sauna are just the ticket after a busy day exploring the Dolomites.

Transfer time: approx. 3 hours from Innsbruck airport.

Corvara & Colfosco

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 Sellaronda 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 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 Sellaronda 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,  maybe smaller and quieter, but it has a distinct charm of its own and some good hotels and restaurants. Apart from the Sellaronda, the best local skiing is “up the road” at Corvara, taking in the excellent “local” slopes of La Villa 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.
