Carezza Ski Resort
Carezza is a small, compact Italian resort just to off the Val di Fassa.
The local slopes are compact, covering only 40km, but are pretty and tree-lined. Most runs are fairly short and rated blue or red, so are ideal for beginners or intermediates, but more advanced skiers will quickly become a little frustrated. However, with so many resorts nearby, including Obereggen and Canazei, there's plentiful skiing within reach of Carezza. The lift system is good, with plans afoot to upgrade some key lifts in the near future, and snow reliability has improved in recent years thanks to snowmaking investment.
Carezza is a small, compact village with a good selection of accommodation in traditional old buildings and slopeside chalets. There's also one big hotel at the foot of the slopes and a couple of bigger hotels a little down the hill. Off the slopes, there's a couple of decent cross country slopes and a well-marked winter walking trail from one end of the ski area to the other. Access is from either Innsbruck, Verona and Venice – the drive takes around 2.5 hours.
