The Cortina d’Ampezzo resort is located near the town of the same name Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy, Veneto region, Belluno.

The resort lies at an altitude of 1224 m above sea level, in the middle of a spacious mountain gorge with an area of about 4 by 7 km. On different sides of it, powerful mountain ranges rise, similar to impregnable fortresses with sheer rocky walls. In the southeast is Sorapis (3205), in the northeast is Cristallo (3216). In the west, where the Fanes-Sennes-Braies natural park borders, rises the Tofana massif (3243). In the southwest there are the “Five Towers” Cinque Torri (2361) and the Averau group (2649), in the south – the rocky circus Croda da Lago (2715) … Awesome round dance! It is no coincidence that the vicinity of Cortina was chosen as the location for the filming of the film “Climber” with Sylvester Stallone.
Cortina d’Ampezzo is called the “Queen of the Dolomites” for some reason. It is the only Italian resort included in the prestigious Best of the Alps group of the best alpine resorts. Cool hotels and restaurants, a wide range of entertainment after skiing. People go to Cortina first of all to have a good time, to see people, to show themselves.
Cortina is often the venue for ski competitions. The resort is currently investing heavily in infrastructure in preparation for two events that it will host in the next few years: the 2021 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup and, together with Milan, the 2026 Winter Olympics. The ski slopes and lift system will be optimized that will serve not only during these events, but also after.
In addition to Cortina d’Ampezzo itself, its ski region includes the resort villages of San Vito di Cadore (11 km from Cortina), Misurina (15 km) and Auronzo (33 km), which have their own small ski areas.
