The ski area can be easily reached from Vigo di Fassa by following the so called "Grande Strada delle Dolomiti" in the direction of Bolzano. This historic route was inaugurated on September 13th 1909 and its centenary was celebrated in 2009.
The ski area, located between Trentino and Alto Adige, is characterized by 12 ski lifts, which have been continuously renovated over the last years, 40 km of slopes equipped with 170 snow cannons, 18 mountain refuges where skiers can enjoy pleasant breaks, 1 snow park, 2 family fun parks especially dedicated to children, 2 playgrounds in the snow (kinderland), 2 thematic ski runs for the youngest (low profile ski lift "Nani" and King Laurin’s Legends course), 1 sledge track, 1 slope exclusively reserved to ski clubs and ski teams served by the new cabin lift "König Laurin II".
The ski area extending from Costalunga Pass to Nova Levante and Nigra Pass, faces the South and is exposed to the sun from morning till late afternoon. It is the ideal resort for families and for all those who, ski-off, would like to rest, relax and enjoy the view. We are in the legendary area of the so called "Regno di Re Laurino" (King Laurin’s Kingdom), at the feet of Catinaccio, Roda de Vael and Latemar, part of the Unesco World Heritage. Every day, from dawn to dusk, such majestic Dolomites peaks offer an extraordinary panorama, the "Enrosadira" (Ladin word for "Alpine glow", the natural phenomenon of mountains getting a pink shade at sunset).
An efficient ski bus service connects the villages of Val di Fassa to Costalunga Pass all winter long.
Top ski slope: Pra di Tori. Surrounded by the enchanting panorama of the Catinaccio-Rosengarten group there is a beautiful track where every year the Snowboard World Cup takes place. The first short wall warms up the legs in order to take on the breathtaking descent, quite wide but very steep. Only in the final part skiers can relax and enjoy, with wide curves, a sweet and relaxing ride.
Skiing safety: the for skiers on the slopes of Val di Fassa.
