Val di Fassa skiing resort in the Italian Alps
In the midst of the Sella Group, 7 ski areas, 83 ski-lift facilities and 152 slopes
The Val di Fassa is one of the most beloved valleys of Trentino. It encompasses a small area and nothing is ever too far away, yet, despite its size, nature here has been exceedingly generous. Indeed, here you’ll find some of the most renowned peaks of the Dolomites: the Vajolet towers, the Piz Boè and the Langkofel or Sassolungo.
Skiing in the Val di Fassa in winter means being surrounded by rock faces that take on a pink or reddish hue at dusk as you lose yourself in the splendour of the beauty and harmony of the landscape.
For a few years now it’s quite easy to move from one ski area to another, crossing from one side to the other of the Dolomites. With three ski passes you can ski anywhere: the pass for Val di Fassa/Carezza is valid on all lift facilities from Canazei to the Costalunga pass; the ski pass for Alpe Lusia/San Pellegrino includes the areas of Moena, Alpe Lusia-Bellamonte and San Pellegrino-Falcade; the “Silver” ski pass is valid across a total of 4 ski areas (Val di Fassa-Carezza, Val di Fiemme-Obereggen, Alpe Lusia-San Pellegrino and San Martino di Castrozza-Rolle Pass). The choice is yours, 5 or 6 days at a special price.
For those who wish to spend the entire day on their skis, the Val di Fassa offers a range of legendary ski tours such as the Sellaronda, the Panorama ski tour, the Tour of the Great War or the ski tour of the Alpe Lusia-San Pellegrino. Night skiing is also possible along artificially lit slopes, under a blanket of stars that somehow seem to shine even brighter on the long winter nights.
There are also a range of opportunities for cross-country skiing enthusiasts along the valley floor along the Marcialonga track, or higher up where you’ll find a total of over 45 km of groomed tracks. Furthermore, snowboarders can enjoy themselves to the full at any of the 6 snow parks available.
Families with children can take advantage of a range of services, beginner slopes, well-equipped snow parks and ski schools with quaolified instructors.
Besides sport, a holiday in the Val di Fassa also means treating yourself to a well-earned rest. Here it’s almost obligatory to relax under the winter sun on the terraces of mountain huts or lodges and enjoy some of the local cuisine. You can also learn about the Ladin culture or maybe enjoy a swim, sauna or beauty treatment in public wellness centres or in hotels across the valley.
