Ski holidays in San Cassiano

Well connected Dolomiti Superski resort, with wonderful mountain restaurants

San Cassiano is a delightful village on the magnificent Dolomiti Superski area, well positioned between La Villa and Cortina, and close to Armentarola, with its famous horse-drawn ski-lift! A stunning array of dramatic Dolomite peaks provides an unforgettable backdrop to the incredible 1,220km of varied skiing, which is easily accessible from the resort’s main Piz Sorega gondola. San Cassiano is popular with Italian and British skiers alike, so you will find a particularly good selection of gourmet restaurants on the mountain, as well as simpler, traditional pit-stops. Hug’s Bar and Da La Vedla provide some of the best après-ski in the village, with the Las Vegas Lodge on the mountain providing a lively atmosphere for a final stop-off on the last run home. Overall there is a great deal to discover and enjoy in this latest and very welcome addition to our Italian range of resorts.

Cross country

Beginners will find the best selection of blue runs in the Superski area at the top of the Piz Sorega gondola with perfectly groomed and wide sweeping pistes with plenty of space to practise and develop those important skills.

Intermediates are spoiled for choice here, with a mix of reds and blues to explore between San Cassiano itself and neighbouring La Villa and Corvara, even before using the Superski links to other parts of this huge ski arena. Connect via Corvara to ski the renowned Sella Ronda circuit, which makes a memorable highlight to any holiday.

Advanced skiers meanwhile will relish the chance to put plenty of miles beneath their skis, as well as the challenge of taking on the famous Gran Risa World Cup Downhill – a black run down into La Villa, which will test the best.

Snowboarders can head for ‘Snow Park Alta Badia ‘at the top of the Capanna Nera chair on the Piz Sorega plateau.

Cross Country skiers can head to the Armentarola cross country centre situated in Sciaré/Armentarola, 3km from San Cassiano. Here you can enjoy 26km of tracks across a number of different routes and grades of difficulty. You will venture through an enchanting Dolomites landscape, at the foot of the Conturines, Lavarella and Settsass mountains.
