Beginners skiing in Cortina

The ski school meets at Socrepes where beginners start off on wide and gentle slopes. Additional nursery slopes are located in no less than three other areas. After the first day beginners who have mastered the baby drag lift can enjoy an extensive area of blue runs.

Intermediates skiing in Cortina

Start off on the Tofana area where at Ra Valles there is a wide open bowl, usually with good powder conditions. On the opposite side of Cortina, the Faloria and Cristallo areas have some excellent slopes for most grades of skier.

Advanced skiing in Cortina

Strictly for the fearless are two very steep and narrow runs – the Forcella Rossa from Ra Valles and the Staunies from Cristallo. There are many long runs both above and below the tree line on both sides of the valley.

Skiing in

Above and below the tree line are a variety of exciting slopes.

Snowboarding in Cortina

The terrain here is vast and will suit all. Freeriders should check out the runs down from the Tofana for the best powder. Freestylers should exploit the Tofana area, which has loads of natural hits and kickers to play on. Progression should be easy for beginners on mellow, wide slopes.

Après ski in Cortina

Après ski in Cortina is lively in high season. Clubs and discos really come alive after 11 pm, and the most animated bar is the Clipper, which has a bobsleigh by the door, as well as a multitude of wine bars to work your way round!
