Vigo di Fassa ski area is reachable by means of a modern escalatortaking skiers from the town centre up to "Catinaccio" cableway’s departure, or from Pera di Fassa with the chair lifts "Vajolet 1", "Vajolet 2" and "Pian Pecei". Ciampedìe is the central point ski area. It is an enchanting natural terrace located at an altitude of 2,000 m from which people can admire a fascinating panorama over the Dolomites of Val di Fassa: the Catinaccio/Rosengarten (Rosen Garden in German) - belonging to the Unesco World Heritage, the Vajolet Towers, Sassolungo, Sella, Sass Pordoi, Marmolada, the ridge of Costabella, Buffaure and Monzoni mountain chain.
A small paradise with 13 km of slopes, some of which are very easy and suitable for those who are taking their first steps on the snow. Some others are more demanding, such as the "Thöni", dedicated to the ski champion from Alto Adige, which starts from the sunny plateau of Ciampedìe and goes down to the village. The black slope called "Tomba", almost 1 km long, is a run for real professionals; it honours the ski champion from Bologna, who used to train in Val di Fassa before the Ski World Cup races.
Ciampedìe ski resort is especially suited for families and children, both skiers and non-skiers. Kids can have fun all day long by playing with the mascot "Lauri" at the Baby Park, managed by the Vigo/Passo Costalunga Ski School.
Catinaccio ski area is continuously evolving: the access to the cable car was improved by means of the escalator; the slopes "Pra Martin" and "Thöni" were connected by a new red run, the "Thöni" was also enlarged in its initial part. In 2014 the black variant to the panoramic track, bypassing the turns known as "Le Cater" and, getting through a steep gulley, quickly leads down to the town. What’s more, the new chair lifts "Vajolet 1", "Vajolet 2", "Pian Pecei" improve the access times to the ski slopes from Pera.
Skiers can also start the Panorama Skitour departing from Catinaccio area by taking the ski bus in the direction Pozza-Buffaure.
Top ski slope: Tomba. As its name suggests, this ski slope is designed for champions. It is 900 m long and has an altitude gap of 300 m with a maximum range of 59%. The ski run has been dedicated to the outstanding Alpine skiing athlete Alberto Tomba, who used to work out in the hollow of Ciampedìe, in the shade of Catinaccio-Rosengarten. After the first steep wavy lines you will immediately understand that you are tackling with a slope suited to snow-professionals, able to dominate the hard snow declivities and the sudden incline’s changes. In its last part, the slope softens, becoming more gentle until the departure of "Pian Pecei" chair lift.
