Canazei Ski Resort

Canazei is located in the heart of the stunning Val di Fassa and its 210km of linked slopes, with access to the world-famous Sella Ronda circuit.

The main gondola from town takes you up to the circuit, with its vast network of lifts and runs around the mighty Sella Ronda massif. Most of the individual runs maybe short and predominantly easy, but the distances you can cover on skis are huge and the lift system is on the whole very good, making the area great for intermediates looking to cover some serious ground. There’s also some great local skiing above Campitello and Pozza di Fassa – at the latter, the slopes are notably quieter. Canazei itself is an attractive town with bags of traditional Italian charm and some fantastic restaurants.

Three Ski Club Freshtracks holidays are basing themselves in Canazei this season, using the resort as a springboard to explore the Sella Ronda.

Canazei Skiing and Snowboarding

For beginners there are two options, a gentle zone on the edge of the village, or a higher, more snowsure sector up at the top of the Ciampac gondola. Progression on to long, gentle blues is adequate and some of the more gentle reds are also within reach for relatively inexperienced skiers and boarders.

The rest of the Val di Fassa and the Sella Ronda is one big intermediate paradise. Confident skiers should be more than capable of completing the full circuit, but if you’re looking for quiet slopes head towards Pozza di Fassa, away from the busier slopes of the Sella Ronda. Advanced skiers and boarders have a fairly limited selection of groomed blacks and some off piste – but this does rely on good natural snowfall, which at times can be limited.
