- No Queues or crowds: Cortina may host World Cup races, but it is not a ‘hard-core’ ski resort, as evidenced by the fact that 70% of all Italian visitors don’t go skiing, but instead go shopping or lunching in the town! This means the slopes are yours for the taking, as the pistes remain quiet and traffic-free! The perfect place to practise as a beginner, or hone your skills as an advanced skier!

- Italian culture & shopping: Cortina provides an authentic Italian experience. At the heart of Cortina lies the cobbled Corso Italia. The Corso is lined with chic boutiques, selling designer goods – from clothes and jewellery to antiquities. The main attraction of the Corso, however, is the towering, Church Campanile, which can be seen from almost anywhere!

- Large ski area: Cortina boasts nearly 140km of slopes, however what is more exciting is the fact that Cortina is a part of the Dolomiti Superski area, which boasts 1,200 km of wondrous snow and slopes!
- Modern capabilities: Cortina has state of the art ski lifts and snow-making capabilities, which cover 90% of the slopes! This guarantees a comfortable day on the slopes, as well as a long ski season that can stretch from November to April!
- Italian Cuisine: Is there anything better than authentic Italian food and a glass (or 5) of prosecco?! I think not.
