Amazing skiing. They haven’t had much fsnowfall as of yet late but still very well groomed and man made snow. The runs are great. I would recommend buying a pass for several mountains in the area and take the shuttle to go from one mountain to another another

The most of ski routs marked as red and black there, but most of reds are not that difficult there and comfortable for intermediate user, especially when not too crowded.

This comment is perhaps unduly influenced by three straight days of incredible sunshine, temperatures hovering just below 0C, and a complete lack of wind. Snow conditions were superb, crowds weren't a problem, and the skiing was spectacular.
Cortina has also had 27' of snow this year (the most since 1951) so please don't read this review and assume every year is the same.
This is not a large area, but one can ski fast on challenging hills and never feel it get old.
The restaurant at the top of the Faloria cable car serves food that is superior to much of what we ate in town at night, and from a value perspective it blows the town away. In particular, the grilled meats (steak, lamb chops, pork side ribs and pork rack) and roasted veggies could not have been better. Soups and goulash were superb. Milanese was very good. French fries weren't up to snuff, but most usually aren't. Sitting outside on the deck, eating this incredible grilled food, and sipping a glass of red is, on a sunny day, about as good as life gets.
YOU MUST GO TO CRISTALLO and ski what I think might be called the San Forca-Forcella chairlift. You reach this by taking a series of chairlifts that ultimately culminate in a ride on a pre-Napoleonic 2-person chair. This chair takes you up to the slightly below the very peak of the mountains. Deep snow forced us to offload just shy of the top due to avalanche dangers, but once offloaded you are between two vertical rock faces and feel you are on top of the world. The sky above the cliffs appeared to be purple it was so intensely colored. Looking back across the valley left you with the feeling you are resting at the top of the world. Of our party of eight, I think we all experienced a measure of vertigo as we contemplated the rocks above us and the valley below.

These are amongst the best and classic areas where to ski in Cortina.
For skiing starters, the Tondi in Faloria and Mietres are the best places.
Both Cristallo and Faloria offer pistes for all skiing levels, including red runs and black runs for top skiing experts. The top part of "Staunies" piste at Mount Cristallo, if open, is one of the most difficult black run in Cortina.

A fairly compact area - eacy reachable by cable-car from Cortina center or by car to Rio Gere. Here you will find two different areas: Cristallo and Faloria. Cristallo cosisting of only 3 ski-lifts - nice in the morning.Faloria is a bit large areas with more slopes and bigger variation. Try the Vitelli from the very top. Eating at Tondi is also reccomandable.
Happy skiing!

We have been coming to Cortina for the passed 20 years and we love the town, the stunning scenery, the amazing food and the friendly people! However, over that time, the lift system seems not to have improved in any meaningful way (aside from the replacement of a single chair and drag lift with a double chair at Cinque Torri). To the contrary it seems to have gone backwards! There are fewer operational lifts, fewer open runs, worse connections to the Sella Rondo (with the bus from Corvara/Armentarolla no longer operational and only an 08:45 bus to Passo Falzarego) and people at the Skipass office who happily sell Super Dolomiti skipasses but lack knowledge and are unhelpful! Every other resort we ski at keeps modernizing and adding to their lift system, yet Cortina seems to rely on the beauty of the environment and having held the Olympics in 1956!! When will they modernize?

Great runs, good snow cover, but to avoid the crowds you have to head up to the more advanced slopes which are excellent.

Get ready for a tram ride up the mountain to get to the ski area. The ski resort is on the top of the mountain. I am not a fan of trams but this one wasn't bad. Great views from up there. There is a lodge with restaurant and rest rooms at the upper tram station. I didn't find a ski shop/gift shop up there. Take what you need with you. Short walk/skate to the chair lifts servicing the actual skiing. Trails well marked and groomed.

Really enjoyed our first visit to Cortina . Skiing enjoyable with many good runs and perfect mountain restaurants to enjoy lunch . After previously skiing in Selva val Gardenia we much preferred Cortina as both location and for far better skiing too. Highly recommend this resort although probably best suited to slightly older crowd perhaps .
