    Cortina d'Ampezzo

    Endless pistes dramatically back dropped by snow-dusted forests and the spellbinding pink-hued granite peaks of the Dolomiti Superski Area; Cortina d’Ampezzo’s slopes are liberally sprinkled with welcoming mountain restaurants serving high class Italian fare. The long and easy cruising runs are perfect for intermediates, and beginners have large nursery slopes to learn on. The mighty Dolomiti Superski lift pass covers both areas.

Expert skiers can hire a guide and explore surprisingly good off-piste. Lift passes of three days or more increase the ski area to 232 kilometres by including Glacier 3000, Leysin and Les Mosses, accessible by rail or road.
