Cortina d'Ampezzo

Ski resorts in Italy
There’s something unique about Cortina. Best known for being the host of the 1956 Winter Olympics, this village comes with a large ski area. Many people name it Italy’s equivalent to Whistler.

The shopping here is as good as the pistes, and some people seem to prefer spending more time in the shops rather than on the mountain. There is actually a really positive side about this. There are hardly any lift queues, which is a reason many people label Cortina dámpezzo their paradise. You can ski for miles down the slopes during daytime and then finish off your evening at one of the many Italian restaurants and/or night clubs.

Despite the disappointing limited snowfalls during the last couple of years, many still recommend Corina d’ampezzo for a ski holiday. Having access to the famous Sella Ronda circular ski route and Dolomites, which offers the amazing views, means there is still something quite spectacular about his place.
