Overview by Paul McMenamin

Despite its remote location—a three-hour drive from Venice via steep and winding mountain roads—Cortina d' Ampezzo is Italy's most fashionable luxury resort. The ski area itself is spread over three mountains with more than 50 lifts. The town of Cortina sits in a valley at less than 4,000 feet in elevation, but the bulk of the runs are located above 6,000 feet. Consequently, skiers must take long lifts or gondolas to access the lift network. There are some gentle cruising runs in the Pocol area, but the best runs lie in the outlying areas, reachable by shuttle bus. Intermediate skiers can enjoy the staggering views of Cortina while attacking the Passo Falzarego area, while the experts seek out the narrow, steep chutes between the rocky crags that crown the mountain tops.

Accommodations to suit all budgets are available throughout the area, including a number of reasonably priced two- and three-star hotels near the town center.
