Luxury Ski Holidays in Cortina d'Ampezzo
A true paradise for winter sports enthusiasts and nature lovers alike, Cortina is a captivating town in a truly spectacular setting. Although a famous racing town and host of the 1956 Winter Olympics, Cortina is also Italy’s most fashionable resort where culture, shopping and gastronomy are considered just as important (if not more so) than skiing.
The resort is part of the Dolomiti Superski, one of the world’s largest ski areas with 1,200 km of slopes across 12 ski regions, accessible with a single ski pass. Although accommodation in the resort is dominated by hotels, it is always worth seeking out the increasing number of impressive luxury ski chalets in Cortina d’Ampezzo for a truly indulgent holiday.
At the heart of Cortina is the cobbled Corsa Italia, a top spot for those who like to shop. The town centre offers a wealth of stores ranging from fashion, accessories and home furnishings to sport and art. Cortina’s excellent restaurants serve a variety of dishes from traditional Venetian to typical Tyrolean specialities, showcasing the fresh local ingredients.
In high season, Cortina ski holidays offer a lively après-ski scene with sophisticated cafes serving divine cake and pastries at tea time and a variety of excellent wine and cocktail bars for a late-night tipple or two. There is much to do off the slopes here too, including popular walks, swimming and ice skating.

The latter two are linked by the new gondola from Son dei Prade to Bai de Dones. With red-tinged peaks rising vertically from the tops of the runs, the backdrop to luxury ski holidays in Cortina d'Ampezzo is simply stunning.
Best for beginner skiers is the network of wide, easy blue runs served by high-speed chairlifts on the extensive lower slopes above Socrepes. Confident intermediates should head to the Faloria-Cristallo area which has plenty of red and black runs. There's also the epic 8km Armentarola red piste from Lagazuoi with its breathtaking scenery of towering cliffs and frozen waterfalls. Experts can enjoy excellent ski touring with a guide - the Super8 Ski Tour traverses three Dolomite mountain passes: Forcella Averau, Croda Negra and Lagazuoi.
It is also possible to go cross-country skiing, including along a long stretch of the old railway line, or enjoy a magical snowshoe trek through the fabled forests of the Ampezzo Dolomites Nature Park.
