Cortina d´Ampezzo

Cortina d´Ampezzo is the most famous ski resort in the Dolomiti Superski area. The area is famous for the 1956 Winter Olympics and regular World Cup races on the Tofana ski slope.

 105 downhill runs (120 km)
 37 cable cars, of which 5 gondola lifts
 1 amusement park for snowboarders
 78 km of cross-country trails

.. all this and much more can be offered by the ski resort CORTINA D´AMPEZZO.

Cortina d'Ampezzo (1,224 - 3,243 m above sea level) is a town of 8,000 inhabitants. Cortina's tradition as a ski resort dates back to long before World War II. It is one of the most famous resorts and it is no wonder that it is called the Queen of the Dolomites, because not only thanks to its ski slopes and cross-country trails, but also gastronomy, we owe every year to a steady influx of visitors, especially Italian cream from Turin and Milan.

It has a very good location in the middle of the beautiful dramatic Dolomites, in the province of Belluno and in the Veneto region. However, the Winter Olympics, which took place here in 1956, gave Cortina only the right shine. Cortina has above-standard sports equipment, so if you are not satisfied with just downhill or cross-country skiing, you can try jumping or bobsleighing. The downhill runs are of all difficulties. Almost two thirds of the slopes are more demanding.

One of the most famous slopes in Cortina is undoubtedly the descents from Tofana (3,243 m), where you can take the cable car via Col Druscie and Cristallo (3,216 m). Good skiers will certainly not forgive themselves to try the Olympic downhill run from Tofana. Medium difficult slopes can be found on the slopes of the peaks Tondi (2,362 m) and Faloria (2,123 m), which can be reached by cable car and chairlift. Beginners can ski on the gentle plains of Mount Pecol with a number of lifts. From Passo Falzarego (2,105 m) above Cortina, the cable car leads to the top of Lagazuoi (2,800 m). From here there is a 7.5 km long track with an elevation gain of 1,100 m to Armentarola. From Col Druscia to Rumerlo, crossings can be made less demanding.

If the visitor decides to visit the second part of the Cortina ski area, he can ski on the slopes in Misurina (1,756 m). There are not so many difficult slopes and you can spend a quiet holiday here. The Auronzo - Misurina ski area stretches to Monte Agudo. There is also the San Vito di Cadore ski area with its 16 km of slopes. Together, the whole area has 33% of blue, 62% red, 5% black on 140 km of slopes of varying difficulty.

Misurina is located on the lake of the same name, which is usually frozen in winter and therefore serves as an ice rink, there are also interesting cross-country trails nearby. From the car park, it is possible to take the chairlift to the Col de Varda up to 2,300 m and from there to climb the moderately demanding slopes back to Misurina. All Auronzo - Misurina - Cortina resorts can be reached with the Dolomiti Superski ski pass. Cross-country ski trails cross at Lago d´Antorno.

The ski area also has some climbing routes.

In addition to downhill skiing, you can go on snowshoe trips, or try a toboggan run more than 1 km long or just walk in the snow-covered pine forests. And after a hard day of skiing, you can skate here and try to ride on the Olympic ice from 1956 in one of the most beautiful stadiums, where the opening ceremony took place at the time. The rink has 30 x 60 m and is used not only by the public, but also for various concerts and hockey matches. Cortina is also known for its famous gastronomy. In summer, charming mountain lakes can be explored on foot or by bike.
