Cortina overview

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.

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 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.

10 Reasons To Visit Cortina Ski Resort

  1. Stunning scenery, it really is spectacular, dramatic and definitely photo worthy (part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage site)
  2. No crowds on the slopes (only 30% of visitors actually ski)
  3. Upmarket and attractive town centre with pedestrianised main street & a very Italian feel with a laid back yet buzzing atmosphere
  4. Excellent shopping including a four floor shopping centre
  5. 44 mountain restaurants serve up some of the best food we've tasted when skiing
  6. Heaps of progression terrain, perfect for improving and perfecting technique and a great confidence booster
  7. Three ski areas each with a distinctive feel
  8. Can catch a bus to the Lagazuoi frozen waterfall run, it's worth the extra effort & from here you can join the Sella Ronda's 400km of piste
  9. 95% of slopes are covered by snow making cannons and being at a decent altitude means it's pretty snow sure
  10. Only 2 hours from Venice with cheap flights throughout winter

What's Happening?

  • Open air museum - the Gebirgsjagertour ski circuit takes in many First World War sites dotted around the mountain
  • Natura 2000 region protecting endangered animals and plants since 1992 including the domestic wolf, ibex, marmot, bear, lynx and golden jackal
  • Venue for the 2021 Alpine Ski World Cup

    Pistes in Cortina d'Ampezzo

    Cortina's 120km of slopes are split into 3 distinct ski areas with a great variety of skiing. 95% of the pistes are covered by snowmaking meaning you'll always be able to ski them.

    The Tofana-Socrepes area has 47km of piste just outside the town centre with a new gondola for 2019/20. The area has some of the best beginner and less confident intermediate runs.

    Faloria-Cristallo area has 44km of piste and linked by cable car to the outskirts of town (across the park) and the views from the Faloria peak (2,123m) are stunning. This is red and black heaven with a terrain park.

    Cinque Torri-Lagazuoi area has 29km of piste and is a 25 minute bus ride from town. The five rock towers that give the area it's name are striking. Don't miss the 8.5km hidden valley run.
