Overview

Ski through the spectacular winter scenery of the Dolomites on a 4-hour guided morning or afternoon ski tour of the Tofano area from Cortina d’Ampezzo. Depending on your skiing experience and with an expert guide, zoom down steep runs in the high Ravalles or Pomedes areas, tackle some of Cortina’s 1956 Olympic slopes, or go slower on the gentler runs on the lower slopes. Enjoy the stunning winter setting and views of the wide Cortina valley, and take rest and refreshment breaks in traditional mountain huts on route.
  • 4-hour Dolomites ski tour around the Tofana ski area, with an expert ski guide
  • Enjoy skiing above the majestic Cortina valley, overlooked by Dolomites' peaks
  • Tackle Tofana’s demanding, intermediate or beginners’ slopes depending on ability
  • Enjoy Cortina’s 1956 Olympic courses, steep Ravelles or Pomedes runs, or gentler pistes
  • Stop at traditional mountain huts for refreshments (own expense) and rest breaks
  • Choose from a morning or afternoon tour
  • Get expert tips from a knowledgeable guide
Choose a morning or afternoon ski tour when you book. Then, on the day, hop inside an air-conditioned vehicle with your guide at your Cortina d’Ampezzo hotel or a designated start point.

Depending on your abilities and an assessment by your guide, travel to the appropriate gondola or cable car in the Tofana area to enjoy the slopes suited to your skiing level. Tofana offers a wide variety of runs, from the beginners’ slopes of the lower areas to the higher pistes of the Ravalles section. There’s also the opportunity to race down runs used in the 1956 Cortina Winter Olympics, the first to be broadcast on TV.

Drink in the breathtaking winter scenery, and with your guide, perhaps speed down the testing Olympic courses, switching from the downhill run (Pista Olympia), to the giant slalom course (Pista Vitelli) or slalom course (Pista a Col Druscie). Advanced skiers may also want to savor the lightning-fast slopes from Pomedes to Rumerlo, zooming between striking mountain rock formations. Along the way, be sure to stop at the Duca d’Aosta mountain refuge, famous for housing the 1956 Olympic flame before the opening ceremony.

Other challenges for expert skiers include the Canalone and Labirinti slopes, and the Vertigine Bianca black run. One of only two Cortina slopes not groomed by snowmobiles, the ultra-steep Vertigine is stupendously beautiful and promises the thrill of skiing through fresh snow on an eco-friendly, zero-impact run.

Wherever your skiing takes you during your tour, take time out at one of Cortina’s traditional mountain huts, perhaps sampling the area’s famous ‘Olympia’ dish (own expense) — a culinary celebration of the resort’s Olympic heritage.

When the time comes, finish your ski tour in Cortina or with a hotel drop-off.
