Skiing Holidays in Val di fassa, Italy
Ski Val di Fassa
Val di Fassa - that means Fassa Valley - is set in the heart of the Dolomites, the limestone Alps, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its beautiful mountain landscapes and precious geology. There are two resort villages - Canazei and Campitello - which link in to the Sella Ronda ski circuit giving access to a mere 1200kms of skiing so we doubt if you'll run out of new pistes to try.
Beginners are well catered for with nursery slopes at village level, then when confidence blossoms, the Belvedere gondola takes you up from Canazei, to some delicious blues at Pecol. From Campitello, take the Col Rodella cable car to find more gentle runs.
Intermediates - well, all we need to say is Sella Ronda, 26kms of runs linked by lifts around the Gruppa del Sella, which gives access to other resorts where you can play to your heart's content - Arabba, Val Gardena, Corvara and Colfosco.
Super-skiers won't want to miss the Men's Downhills in Val Gardena and La Villa, or the piste which runs under the cable car at Alba, and will also find plenty of challenges in nearby Arabba.
Après-ski Val di Fassa
Canazei and Campitello are a happy pair of villages with different characters so your choice of ambience can be met. Canazei buzzes with lively activity along every inch of its narrow cobbled streets, nestled beneath attractive wooded mountains. Traditional-style buildings stand side-by-side with modern hotels and in the evenings there are plenty of pubs, wine bars and clubs if you like the party scene - Cliff, Osteria La Montanara and Taverna Espanola, to name but three.
Campitello, on the other hand, is peaceful, so better suited to families, yet there are places to go for a night's entertainment such as Il Pavone disco-pub.
For other activities, there's a great water and fitness centre called Dòlaondes, or you could watch a game of ice hockey, go dog sledding, tobogganing or take a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh.
Great for families, a good value skiing holiday for every ability - that's Val di Fassa! Let GetSkiing take you there.
Gary's Little Gems
"You must try skiing the whole Sella Ronda as there is a total of 230 kms of ideal ski cruising runs surrounded by the beauty of the unique Dolomite mountains. Worth stopping in one of the many mountain resorts at the end of the day to enjoy the changing colours of the mountains as the sun goes down. If you want a challenge, try the " Vulcano" in the ski area of Buffaure and the Ciampac in the area of Albi di Canazei."
