If you want to blend in with the Italians, there’s only one way to explore the Dolomiti Superski, a massive interconnected 460-lift system with 762 miles of trails. Wake up late, ski to one of literally hundreds of restaurants, eat a huge lunch, wash it down with some wine, then lie in the sun and take a nap until four o’clock in the afternoon when everyone heads down to the disco. Just beware of the grappa bars that serve Italy's version of tequila, and the Italians who have been drinking there.
Cortina is a world-famous winter resort that rivals any other in the Alps. Magnificently situated in a sunny amphitheater, it is ringed by spectacular peaks which rise nearly 3000 meters above the village. Cortina has offered a complete range of winter sports facilities since hosting the Olympic Games in 1956. In Cortina, life centers around the Corso, a traffic-less, shop-lined street where the late afternoon passeggiata proceeds without fail. You can browse and see the latest winter fashions, as well as purchase a gift from one of the many antique and craft shops. At the heart of the Corso is a central piazza, a church with towering campanile, and the interesting Regole Museum. Excursions to Venice, Plan de Coranes/Brunico and Pieve di Cadare are available locally. Cortina also hosts World Cup events in mid-January, bobsled races and a horse show on snow. At night, enjoy one of Cortina's exclusive night clubs and discos. Come ski Cortina with Ski.com.
