Legendary Slopes | Skitour Cortina - Alta Badia

Lagazuoi Ski run

This highly technical red run is great fun for ski experts with its variations in steepness, rollers, and windy stretches, covering a total length of 2400 m and 635 m of vertical drop. The fun of the descent is enhanced by great scenic views: frequent changes of direction and therefore of perspective offer ever-changing and awe-inspiring views over the Dolomites. The piste  winds down an area of great historical significance: World War 1 frontline with the Austrian trenches on the saddle and the Italian trenches towards Col Gallina. The ski run develops along a winding  line so that  every time you change direction from North to East and from South to West, the views over  the mountains also change: Conturines, Fanes, Civetta, Marmolada, Pelmo, Tofana, 5 Torri, Averau...

Armentarola Ski Run

The Armentarola ski run is among the most famous and popular ones  in Cortina ski area. The spectacular descent from Mt Lagazuoi all the way down to Capanna Alpina mountain guesthouse winds through extraordinary  natural scenery. Highlights include the amazing icefalls and the centuries-old Swiss pines lining the slope.

On finishing the run, you may reach the Saré bridge by horse tow and reach the Alta Badia ski area. With its 8.5 km of length it is the longest in Cortina, it lies in the Natural Park of Fanes, Sennes, and Braies surrounded by  the awe-inspiring  rock faces of Cima Scotoni, the Fanis group, and the majestic Piz dles Conturines.


Lino Lacedelli Ski run

Do not miss the new ski run named after famous mountaineer Lino Lacedelli. It was opened for the 2021 World Championships and the 2026 Winter Olympics. Conceived as a variant of the 5 Torri ski run, it is meant for training and competitive skiing, and, due to its technical difficulties, is an important test  for your skiing skills.

Croda Negra skiweg

Croda Negra Skiweg connects the 5 Torri ski area with Col Gallina, Falzarego and Lagazuoi ski area. The two-seater chairlift takes skiers up to the saddle, in  a silent, almost fairy-tale wilderness. The descent is along a stunning, gently sloping  mountainscape as far as Col Gallina, from where you can easily reach Passo Falzarego.

The “Blacks” of Tofana Area

Expert skiers who fancy challenging ski runs may venture on the Vertigine, one of the most demanding black runs in the area. Stratofana Olimpica, known as Olympia delle Tofane, is one of the most beautiful and famous runs in Italy for its variations in steepness, its length, the quality of snowmaking and maintenance, and, last but not least, the highly scenic backdrop.  In particular, the Schuss of Pomedes is one of the most spectacular stretches of all the World Cup ski races. The Labirinti run, instead, is a highly demanding piste so much so as to have been chosen for the 2021 World Championships Men’s Giant Slalom.  The Labirinti run has recently been redesigned to host the Worlds (it has been widened, levelled out, and new snow making facilities have been set up).

Socrepes and Pocol

In Socrepes and Pocol ski areas, there are great blue runs for the little ones and those who wish to improve their skills, while the Baby Beginners’ Area is perfect for Ski Schools. The Pocol ski area connects the Tofane slopes to the Cinque Torri - Passo Falzarego - Lagazuoi ski area thanks to the brand new Skyline gondola.


Forcella Rossa

Skiing down Forcella Rossa gives you thrills. It is one of the most technically demanding and extraordinary slopes in Cortina so much so that there exists the so-called “All Blacks - Forcella Rossa” club. Admission requires totalling 100 Forcella Rossa runs per season. After all..it’s all downhill and it gets your adrenaline flowing.

The run ends up at Pié Tofana, and well signposted pistes connect to the new and highly scenic Cortina Skyline gondola which takes skiers up  to the 5 Torri-Falzarego area and continue in the Badia valley
