About the resort

Canazei is very popular in the Dolomites and it's no wonder. There's a lovely buzz about the place and being surrounded by the towering Dolomites is a constant reminder of the vast ski area you're in. 


Virtually the entire 1200km+ area is snowsure thanks to the nearby Marmolada Glacier and that 97% of the runs can make snow when conditions are right. 


There's plenty to do off the slopes as well. Strolling around the many boutique shops and artisan food stores is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Or for a bit more action, head to the ice rink or aquatic centre. There's also a nightclub for the those who like to party into the small hours.



The scenery is something you never tire of. To get a different perspective, head out into the local forests on a snowshoe walk or try cross-country skiing to see the more hidden parts of this incredible area.
