Central to the Alta Badia region and well-positioned for the Sella Ronda circuit. There's a small piazza, but the rest of the place is spread out along the valley. Extensive, easy slopes make it an appealing base for novices and families, as well as for intermediates wanting undemanding terrain amid stunning Dolomite scenery. The distances you can cover are huge too. In overall scale, the network rivals the famed Three Valleys in France. But the geology that provides the visual drama also dictates the nature of the slopes. Individual runs are short; verticals of more than 500m are rare, while runs of under 300m vertical are not. And they are predominantly easy: there's scarcely a black run to be seen and very little off-piste. In addition to the network of slopes on the circuit, a couple of slow lifts head off towards pistes shared with La Villa and San Cassiano. All of this is covered by the excellent value Dolomiti Superski lift pass, which includes more than 1,000km of slopes. Corvara rivals Selva as a base from most points of view, the exception being that of experts, who have to travel in search of challenges; for families and novices it takes some beating - though Colfosco merits consideration too.
