Val de Fassa
- Part of the Dolomiti Superski, the largest ski area in Europe.
- Bustling, picturesque resort within stunning UNESCO-protected scenery.
- Great selection of après bars on the mountain and dotted through the villages.
Val di Fassa is made up of 7 resorts, the most well known being Canazei, Campitello and Pozza di Fassa. They all surround the Sella Ronda, which is part of Dolomiti Superski, the largest ski area in Europe with 1,200km of piste. And it’s easy to access from all of the villages.
New for winter 2017/18, in the often-overlooked Ciampac-Buffaure area, is a new gondola to replace the old Alba-Ciampac cable car. It comes with padded seats and the journey time is cut to just five minutes, giving quick and easy access to a mix of easier blue pistes and more challenging blacks.
The pink, jagged peaks of the Sella Massif, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, create a large variety of red runs, making the Dolomites perfect for intermediate skiers. Beginners will feel more than comfortable skiing here too, with many low-gradient, confidence-building runs and nursery slopes.
Canazei has lots of Austrian-style après bars like the Stua dei Ladins and Montanara Bar, along with traditional restaurants such as the Kaiserstube. There are lots of good options on the mountain in general, serving pizzas, pasta and paninis as well as local mountain food, all at reasonable Italian prices.
Other things you can get up to in Val di Fassa include ice skating, bowling and cross-country skiing.
Novices at Canazei can start on the village slope before taking the Belvedere gondola to the wide, undulating runs at Pecol. Campitello has one beginner run at village level and at the top of the Col Rodella cable car several blue runs.
From Canazei and Campitello there is direct access to the famous Sella Ronda. This 42km route encircles the Sella Massif and can be used to ski the extensive areas of Arabba, Corvara, Colfosco and Val Gardena.
The main challenge for experts will be to put as much mileage as possible under their skis. Try the run under the cable car at Alba or the Men's Downhill runs in Val Gardena and La Villa. The north facing slopes at nearby Arabba provide some of the most challenging skiing in the Dolomites.
From Canazei, the Marmalada Glacier, also known as the Queen of the Dolomites, can be reached pretty easily - just follow the signs for the Fedaia Pass. The glacier, sitting at an imposing height of 3,342m altitude, has a range of black and red runs, perfect for thrill seekers. It's known for its heli-skiing and off-pisting, too, and has a fantastic 12km long slope, La Bellunese.
Rack up your mileage with a Ski Away-day to the Hidden Valley, a ski area in the Dolomites. A bus will drop you off at the Valley in the morning and from there you’ll be able to capture views of a stunning frozen waterfall, cross the Cinque Torri and Lagazuoi Mountain and even witness one of the most famous ski routes in the world. With your Area lift pass, you get 1 free day to experience this uniquely stunning setting. Speak to your rep for more details.
Val di Fassa is full of cross-country opportunities. There are great free-to-use tracks between the villages of Canazei, Campitello and Pozza, that can be used by both classic skiers and skaters. Some of these trails swoop along the valley, while others are found at higher altitude, but if you're a night owl, you're in luck as some routes stay open well after the sun goes down.
Some of the most popular freeride routes in Val di Fassa include Val Lasties, Val Mezdi and Marmolada - none of which are maintained or signposted, so make sure to take a guide with you. The Pordoi Pass is another popular off-piste area, where steep slopes alternate with moderate descents. If you're an off-piste newbie, head to the Col Margherita freeride park - the first authorised freeride park in Trentino - which offers beautifully fresh snow and natural obstacles
