Cortina is a stunning ski resort. One of the oldest in Europe and it has retained its upmarket finery from glamorous eras past. The impressive cobbled promenade is overlooked by stone church spires and the dramatically towering Dolomites; tinged pink at dusk and dawn. Skiing in Cortina is a thing of beauty.
It’s Italy’s most prestigious ski resort and you can see this during aperitivo hour (just after the lifts close) where the streets are packed with window shoppers in all their glam, there’s not a ski boot insight. But this is also the beauty of skiing in Cortina with most guests here for the town it leaves the slopes blissfully quiet, you’ll struggle to find a queue anywhere.
Take advantage of all three ski areas with excellent progression terrain spread over the 120km of pistes.
