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

Sam W from United Kingdom writes:

Cortina is beautiful. Lots of diverse runs to explore in stunning dolomite scenery.

The beginner areas of Socrepes and Pocol are perfect, and at a reasonable altitude offer lovely sunny tree-lined pistes, with no queues throughout our stay.

The only issue is getting your head around the free buses. Perhaps less of an issue if staying in Cortina itself. However, we stayed in the nearby village of San Vito Di Cadore. Part of the area and offers cheaper accommodation for those on a budget, whilst still connected with a free bus.

Fly in to Treviso/Venice and take the train to Calalzo, and the local bus towards Cortina. Trains are comfortable, reliable and offer great views. Transfer is not quick, but was rather enjoyable. It is possible to take the Cortina express bus as an alternative.

The central bus station in Cortina is next to the ski pass shop.
