Val di Fassa

Overview

The ski area offers a huge amount of skiing with nothing to frighten nervous intermediates. The area is made up of numerous small villages and is a vast network of connected slopes. The delight of this ski area is the scenery with the pink and orange hues of the craggy peaks, which change colour throughout the day.

 

Another big attraction of this area is the value for money that it offers, the difference of prices for a night out and lunch on the mountain is huge when you compare resorts in this region to some of the large French and Austrian resorts.

 

Intermediates will adore this area with the possibility to cover huge distances over a weeks holiday. The famous Sella Ronda is a must do when there.

 

Experts are well catered for especially around Arabba and Val Gardena where there some steep slopes.

For beginners we would recommend the village of Corvara where there are excellent nursery slopes and some great areas to progress to. 

Apres ski in the Val di Fassa area is varied form village to village with probably the best area being Selva which has a great buzz at apres ski time.

Beautiful mountains and extensive ski area. Better described as a ski area than a resort.
