Skiing in Corvara/Colfosco
The resort is very conveniently positioned to get the most out of the region's skiing, much of which favours intermediate cruisers and beginners. Experts may well want to stay in nearby Val Gardena for some of best tough stuff in the Italian Alps.
The ski school is based right in the town with the nursery slopes directly outside, underneath the ‘Boe’ gondola. From here you can quickly progress onto the gentler slopes leading back into Corvara town. A mixture of wide pistes above the tree line, beautiful wooded cruisey runs back to resort makes the area particularly suited to intermediate boarders who want to see as much of the area as possible. Going off piste with a guide, the area is as extreme as you want it to be.
Snow conditions in Corvara/Colfosco

Our first time visit to the Alta Badia and we were blown away by the landscape. The skiing is varied and allows you to go to different villages in the area without having to use transport. Lovely and friendly people and Hotel and food were outstanding. Would certainly go back.
