Corvara (1,568m) is located in the heart of the Italian Dolomites Mountains and the centre of the renowned Alta Badia region, with access to the best skiing in the area. Corvara township straddles a wide, inviting valley and is characterised by a trademark church steeple. The openness and allure of this classically traditional town never fail to impress Dolomites Ski Tours’ clients entering from surrounding mountain passes.
Known for its open slopes and grand vistas, the upper skiing also provides views of the Austrian alps to the north. Alta Badia encompasses five resort villages and 60 of the Dolomites’ 450 ski lifts, all providing access to the famous Sella Ronda circuit.
This area is home to the steep World Cup GS Course at La Villa resort (the “Gran Risa”, reputed to be the toughest GS course in the world) but also many kilometres of high sunny slopes, charming tree-lined trails and an array of impressive mountain restaurants (rifugi). The Alta Badia area even boasts several Michelin Star restaurants.
When it comes to skiing options and alpine charms Corvara and the Alta Badia region have it all.
