Things to do in Corvara during winter
This city is the cradle of winter tourism thanks to Corvara being home to Italy’s first lift, the Col Alto sledge lift, built in 1938, as well being where the first chairlift in Italy was built, also in Col Alto in 1946.
We are only 200 metres from the Boé gondola lift, an ideal starting point for the Sellaronda (to travel around the Sella Massif) in both directions – the endless slopes of the Dolomiti Superski await you with 12 ski areas and some 1,200 kilometres of slopes, 500 of which can be accessed directly from Corvara!
For those wanting a ski mountaineering and freeride experience, we suggest contacting the Alta Badia mountain guides, who can take you to places where no ski lifts can reach: www.altabadiaguides.com.
Here at Ciasa de Munt Lifestyle B&B, we have set up a spacious storage room for you, with heated boot cabinets so you will always find your ski equipment perfectly dry the following morning.
Take the first gondola lift in the morning, then the Vallon chairlift that leads to around 2,700 metres to offer a breath-taking view of the Sella-Marmolada-Lagazuoi and the Monte Croce before spying the Austrian Alps. Travel down the black run of the Vallon to indulge in a gourmet break or to savour a good coffee at our Piz Boè Alpin Lounge. Did you know that together, the Vallon and Boè represent one of the longest runs in Alta Badia?
