The ski season 2021-2022 begins in Cortina, part of the Dolomiti Superski
The Faloria ski area has opened today, one day in advance on the official opening date of the slopes in the Cortina ski area. Wonderful, sunny slopes welcomed skiers as they reached the 2,120 m of the top station of the Faloria Cable Car, where the namesake Rifugio Faloria is located.
Tomorrow, 4th December, several other lifts and slopes will open, including the whole Cristallo ski area.
Skiers have been able to enjoy the snow from 25th November, when the Falzarego Chairlift on Col Gallina started operations. Since then, temperatures have dropped and fresh snow fell also in town, giving Cortina a wintry look and allowing the other slopes to programme their opening.
After the World Ski Championships 2021, Cortina is ready for a winter season with juicy news for skiers. Up in Ra Valles, part of the Tofana ski area, two lifts have been substituted by the Bus Tofana, a 4-seater bubble chairlift making it much more comfortable and faster to reach the 2,742 m of Cortina’s highest slope. The official opening of the lift is set for Sunday 19th December, but it will probably open before.
Another new addition to Cortina’s ski lifts is the brand new 10-seater gondola linking the Tofana and Cinque Torri areas, thanks to which all of Cortina’s ski areas will be reachable from the town without the need for a car or ski bus.
For everyone to enjoy skiing safely, the slopes and lifts of Cortina follow the same rules as the rest of the Dolomiti Superski. Besides limited capacity on cable cars and gondolas and regular sanification, rules include skiers being required to have a valid green pass to access the lifts. The activation of the skipass is possible on the Dolomiti Superski website and app as well as directly at the skipass sales points.
