Ask virtually any serious Italian skier where the best place to ski in Italy is and they won’t blink before recommending Cortina D’Ampezzo. With jaw-dropping views and 12 ski areas, there are 750 miles of downhill runs, 73 miles of cross-country ski runs, a snowboarding park and an Olympic Bobsled. And the town itself, surrounded on all sides by the gorgeous Dolomite mountains (photo, above), is fabulous for apres-ski and people-watching. I don’t even know what more to say.
For rates & information on all 12 ski areas, ski rental, ski school, weather conditions, webcams and more, here’s a useful website.
