Canazei di Fassa Overview

Val di Fassa is a key and famous ski region in the Dolomiti Super-ski, rich in history, culture and natural beauty. Its ancient history is dominated by its Ladin heritage and the Ladin language is still spoken, alongside German and Italian.

The skiing of Val di Fassa/Carezza and its neighboring Tre Valli's skiing is spread over eight separate ski areas ranging in size from 15 km above Alba to 100 km above Moena/San Pellegrino. They officially add up to 220 km of trails, but as all are on the Dolomiti Super-ski ticket, and as the lifts above Canazei lift link to the Sella Ronda circuit which lift links Val Gardena, Alta Badia and Arabba like spokes on a wheel, also all on the Dolomiti Super-ski ticket, the area claims there are approximately 510 km of skiing in and around Val di Fassa. The addition of Val Gardena and Alta Badia make this claim in fact a rather conservative estimate, the reality nearer double that total.

Alba is an attractive small resort located at one end of the Fassa Valley, with it's own ski area on Ciampac and easy access to the Sella Ronda via the nearby lift access at Canazei. It's also close to the Marmolada Glacier for snow-sure skiing.

Canazei is a very attractive, lively roadside village set below well forested slopes. Along with Moena, it has grown to become one of the largest villages in the Fassa Valley, probably due to the fact it is the main resort for direct access to the Sella Ronda.

Campitello is a traditional village set back from the main road. The beginner's slope in the village are particularly good and there are several lively bars nearby.

Vigo and Pozza di Fassa are particularly attractive villages each with their own cozy ski areas and perhaps the strongest influence of history and culture in the whole valley.

The large village of Moena stands on the border of the Fassa Valley and the TreValli sectors of the Dolomiti Super-ski and is the closest resort in the area to Bolzano.

On the Mountain

The most difficult run is the 'Col dei Rossi'.

Skiing in Canazei di Fassa

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 15 km graded black and one of the region's toughest runs, the 3 km 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, Buffaure / 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 chair-lifts 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, Sass Pordoi/Val Lasties, over at the Marmolada glacier and at Passo S. Pellegrino/Col Margherita.

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 2.7 km length.

The Fassa Valley and all surrounding ski areas are part of the giant Dolomiti Super-ski ticket remains the world's largest fully interchangeable lift pass covering around 1200 km of trails and some 500 lifts above more than 50 villages.

There is a local Fassa Valley only ski ticket which has a slightly lower cost.
