The best skiers in the world tackled the slopes of Cortina at the 1956 Winter Olympics. You too can ski those hallowed mountains in this picturesque Italian ski sanctuary. Guaranteed snow cover on 95% of the slopes combined with 8 hours of daily sunshine produce sublime skiing conditions at one of the world's premier ski resorts. Surrounded on all sides by the breathtaking Alps, ski resorts at Cortina encompass the very best that world-class skiing, entertainment, and shopping have to offer. On a break from skiing or simply done with the mountains for the day? The Corso Italia, a pedestrian paradise lined with quaint boutiques and exquisite restaurants, is the crown jewel of an environment swelling with allure and flavor that only Cortina can produce. Whether you're skiing, attending one of the World Cup ski and bobsled races, or perusing the streets of the Corso, you'll be hard pressed to find an empty moment during your stay at Cortina.
Spectacular ski slopes framed by massive Dolomite peaks. This division of the ski slopes from the majestic rocks that surround them has the advantage that the Dolomiti Superski area is one of the safest ski areas in the Alps, in terms of avalanche risk. Only very few slopes run close to steep rocky terrain and, as a safety precaution, these slopes are closed when there is a perceived risk of avalanches.
Please keep a look on the real-time information on weather, slope conditions and lifts, because that helps you planning your ski holiday.
Your safety first!
The Dolomites are among the safest regions in Europe. Carabinieri, police, financial police and forestry authorities are present in all major towns and villages. Emergency responses and health care services are among the best available. There are plenty of pharmacies, good hospitals, doctor’s surgeries and first aid stations.
