Set in the magnificent Dolomites, Cortina is a very picturesque resort. There are over 1,200km of piste available throughout the Dolomite SuperSki pass but there are few runs worthy of the expert tag. Cortina resort is squarely aimed at the intermediate and beginner and there are some great nursery slopes. The extended area is not the easiest to navigate and some bus rides are needed in order to access some ski regions. Off the slopes, Cortina is full of Italian chic, but you have to pay inflated prices for most things as a result of the image. Cortina is a place to be seen, so break out the fur coat (fake fur of course - we love animals) and pose. A fair percentage of Italian visitors don't even bother to go skiing, they would rather shop, chat and drink coffee. At night the town stays awake but if you plan to party, then take lots of money with you as it isn't cheap.

Visitor Reviews of Cortina

nigel emery from United Kingdom writes:

The 2013/14 session was exceptional for Cortina and we went in the last week of March and had fantastic conditions. The pistes were in great condition and very well prepared. South facing slopes were not usable after 2.00 but the north and high altitude areas were still hard at 4.30. The resort is designed for intermediate cruisers and was empty. No lift queues all week and brilliant restaurants and helpful friendly people. The lack of ski convenience is a problem and in late session they reduce the bus service and so having a car or staying in a hotel or chalet that has a minibus service is a must. The Hotel Victoria is run by Inghams and is excellent. The resort is great value for money compared to France and Switzerland.
