Skiing in Moena
The Fassa Valley's skiing truly does have something for everyone with a wide choice of friendly, intimate ski areas for all standards. All have excellent snowmaking cover and most have modern lifts. For example the Catinaccio ski area above Vigo di Fassa had a new quad chair with bubble cover installed on the Pian Pecei-Pra Martin.
It does not always follow that the larger ski areas have access to the tougher skiing, as one of the smaller sections above Alba has a third of its 10km graded black and one of the region's toughest runs, the 3km long Pista Ciampac with a 658m vertical.
All of the ski areas are linked by free ski bus (also free for non skiers). From Canazei it is possible to reach the ski areas of Belvedere-Pordoi Pass, Ciampac and Fedaia-Marmolada, from Campitello the ski area of Col Rodella-Sella Pass, from Vigo and Pozza di Fassa the ski areas Catinaccio, Aloch famous for the night skiing and Carezza, finally Moena offers the ski area Tre Valli with its famous tour.
Canazei is the only major resort in the Fassa Valley truly located on the Sella Ronda circuit with access to Corvara, Colfosco and Arabba all very straight forward, even more so in recent years thanks to the replacement of old surface tows with modern fast chairlifts plus the installation of comprehensive snow making.
Off piste routes are popular in the area, but you would be wise to go with a ski school class or employ a mountain guide for safety. The most famous off piste runs include Laste/Lusia, Vi Giumell, Sass Pordio/Val Lasties, over at the Marmolada glacier and at Passo S. Pellegrino/Col Margherit
Night skiing is available on the Pista Aloch ski stadium above Pozza di Fassa. It is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 20.30 - 23.00 hours and has a 1.6km length.
The Fassa Valley and all surrounding ski areas are part of the giant Dolomiti Superski ticket remains the world's largest fully interchangable lift pass covering around 1200km of trails and some 500 lifts above more than 50 villages.
There is a local Fassa Vally only ski ticket which has a slightly lower cost.
