Cortina: Italy's most fashionable ski resort
Cortina d’Ampezzo is the dream destination of all skiers? Certainly is, and there are many reasons why!
Even the younger skiers can feel the adrenaline in the air which has all to do with numerous World Cup, Nordic Skiing Championships, and numerous race competitions of every type having been held here. Queen of these was of course the Winter Olympic Games held here back in 1956 but still fondly remembered.
So, lots of history and memories are associated with Cortina, and nowadays you also have great opportunities to relax in perfect settings after a day on the slopes – pleasant walks, great restuarant choice, the tops in shopping. All adds up to make this resort the real Pearl of the Dolomites.
Excellent snow-making facilities means that the ski season is guaranteed from the end of November until late April. The ski area of Cortina d'Ampezzo comprises three mountain ranges connected by a free-of-charge ski bus.
