Ski Range 1,224m - 2,939m
Cortina is one of the most fashionable ski resorts in Italy, surrounded by the dramatic peaks of The Dolomites with ski lifts fanning off in different directions. The town centre is charming and not all of the visitors ski, meaning that there are few crowds or queues on the slopes. All the ski areas are linked by lifts or ski busses and the Sella Ronda can be reached by keen skiers and boarders.
The dramatic scenery of The Dolomites makes this one of the world’s most beautiful ski areas, enjoying the best of Italian and Austrian tradition. These mountains have a unique character, with dramatic high-rise pinnacles often glowing a soft pink in the early morning and a fiery red at sunset. The scenery is just awe-inspiring, with incredible views from every vantage point.
