Cortina Ski Resort Guide

About the Resort

The skiing at this resort definately takes second place to parading around in the latest fashions. It is a top destination for well off Italians who have second homes here.

The resort is more like a town than a village and the centre is traffic free. The two main lifts to the slopes are far from the centre and on opposite sides of the town.
