Ski at Cinque Torri and Cortina
Cortina D’Ampezzo is well-known all over the world not only for playing host to the first-ever televised Winter Olympics in the 1956, but also for its fashionable attire. The Tofane ski area offers some of the most exhilarating and beautiful alpine ski runs in the world, from the famous Olympia (where the men’s Olympic downhill events were held, and for many years a stage of the Women’s World Cup), to the superb Canalone (or Couloir in English, on which the women’s downhill Olympic events took place).
In the afternoon ski in the area of Cinque Torri. Thanks to their infinite variety of shapes and sizes, the marvellous Cinque Torri ideally represent the entire Dolomites. Their characteristic profile isn’t comprised of just 5 towers, but by a mass of secondary boulders, fractured towers and peaks sprinkled liberally across the entire area. These peaks are located to the west of Cortina on a grassy hillock just above the tree line at circa 2,200m / 7,218′. The ski slopes of the Lagazuoi 5 Torri Giau area are always perfect, thanks to the favourable exposure and to the use of artificial snow making facilities when necessary. The slopes are easy or moderate, and all are immensely satisfying.
