Hotel La Plaza is a family-run hotel with a great location in the centre of Corvara. The Boé gondola's about 300 metres away so it won’t take long before you’re out on the mountain each day.

Ski-focused staff

All the staff here are fantastic and will go out of their way to make your stay special. It’s run by Eduard, who’s a keen skier and always happy to share his tips with guests - be sure to ask him for his recommendations for the best area to ski, or where to go for a spot for lunch. With a great spot in the centre of Covara, the hotel has convenient access to the Dolomites Ski Area - head up the nearby Boé gondola for access to the orange Sella Ronda route or head over to Colfosco for cruisy blues and the green Sella Ronda route.

Traditional Italian style

The hotel’s decorated in a traditional style, so it's got a very welcoming feel to it.  Each of the rooms have all of the modern conveniences needed for a week in the Italian Dolomites, plus many of the rooms have a balcony so you can enjoy views over the resort and surrounding mountains. Before dinner, make the most of the sauna, solarium and whirlpool - it is a great way to unwind after a day of adventures.

Dining

The restaurant is the focal point and it’s a great place to come together at the end of the day to enjoy some warming food and share stories about your day. They serve up some great local specialties as well as dishes from across the Med. Each morning a hearty skiers buffet is served with local breads, homemade jams, dairy products and additional hot options.

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.
