San Cassiano Ski Resort
One of the smallest, prettiest and quietest villages with access to the Sella Ronda circuit. It is also part of the Alta Badia and Dolomiti Superski areas. Individual runs are short - verticals of more than 500m are rare, while runs of under 300m are not.
The local San Cassiano ski area has predominantly easy intermediate slopes. Beginners must take the gondola out of the resort to access the beginner’s slopes. There are lots of gentle blues on offer for progressing beginners and intermediates. Those intermediates who wish to venture further have the whole of the Dolomiti Superski area at their disposal. The excellent hidden valley run is easy to access. Corvara is also close by and has plenty of blues and reds to tackle. Options for advanced skiers are limited in San Cassiano itself but there is no shortage of options in the rest of the Dolomiti Superski area. Arabba is easy to get to and has some excellent steep on piste and off piste terrain.
San Cassiano has some very smart and comfortable hotels. Brunico is the closest airport to San Cassiano. The closest large airport is Venice which is two hours away by road.
