Skiing in Cortina d’Ampezzo
The seventh Winter Olympics took place here in 1956 and still today the Ski World Cup is a guest every year in Cortina. With 105 kilometres of perfectly maintained slopes and 37 modern lifts, the five ski areas around the city are anything but small. Free ski buses take skiers from base station to base station if they are not already connected. Professional skiers in particular will enjoy skiing in Cortina, because the black slopes of the ski area are among the most challenging ski runs in the Dolomites. Nevertheless, the vast majority of ski slopes is suitable for beginners and advanced skiers and offers an unforgettable holiday experience.
The price level in Cortina d’Ampezzo, however, is extremely high! It is quite difficult to find a good bargain. The prices are reflected in its nightlife and convenience.
