Why Ski Cortina?

Cortina is an excellent resort in the heart of the Dolomites with the most beautiful and dramatic scenery. It is a very upmarket and attractive town with many boutiques, restaurants and bars not to mention its idealistic, rustic style buildings. Many people come to the resort to shop, eat and enjoy the many off piste activities, including its swimming pool, saunas, health spa, art gallery, cinema and indoor tennis court. In high season the resort offers a lively social scene and is considered by some to be Italy’s premier ski destination.  

Skiing in Cortina

There is a good quantity of well maintained slopes; 52 excellent nursery slopes for beginners, 18 good long runs for intermediates and 8 challenging pistes for advanced skiers as well as access to the vast Dolomiti Ski pass area. There are 47 ski lifts comprising of; 29 chairlifts, 13 draglifts and 5 cable cars, the highest lift goes to 3248m and there is a good number of fast chairs scattered throughout the resort. There is 140km of pistes and the longest lift run is 9km. The nursery slopes on offer within the resort are situated in the Socrepes area and are ideal for those learning to both ski and snowboard. These slopes are wide, gentle and served by a fast chair lift, as well as being some of the biggest nursery slopes and best progression runs Italy has to offer. For intermediate skiers the runs at the top of Tofana are short but usually have the best snow, the red runs in the linked Pomedes area offer good cruising and some challenges. It is also well worth making the trip to Clique Torri for fast cruising on usually excellent north facing snow. Intermediate skiers should also be sure not to miss the wonderful ‘hidden valley’ an array of red runs accessible from the Passo Falzarego cable car. Expert skiers are truly in their element at this resort the more than decent amount of natural snow ensures plentiful off-piste skiing as well as adequate snow cover on the sunny black runs. The excellent Forcella from Tofana to Pomedes is a deservedly classified black run and goes though a gap in the rocks to reveal exquisite views of Cortina way down in the valley. But cortina’s most serious challenge is the Staunies run at the top of the Cristallo area.
