Cortina d'Ampezzo must be the best place for skiing. This is James Bond in Cortina.
There are other ski areas I prefer, Cortina d'Ampezzo is full of snooty middle aged women in fur coats who don't ski but just go there to show off.

Kronplatz/Plan de Corones is a good ski area and i've had a couple of good holidays around Innichen/San Candido.

When I say best I mean a combination of gastronomy, night life, events, and light skiing (some lessons). Definetely Cortina attracts the Italian and international jetset and is featured in most luxury travel magazines. Most (real) skiers would probably choose another place.

That's true. Other great places are Val Gardena (Ortisei/St Ulrich, Selva/Wolkenstein) and Val di Fassa (Canazei).
They all are better than Cortina if you are interested in just skiing, plus they aren't as expensive (although they still are a bit).

This is where Dolomites are located. The name "Dolomites" comes from the person who discovered this type of rock D.Dolomieu.


There is a phenomenon (marvel) at the sunset causing a pink-like colour to appear on the rocks.



Residents are bilingual, their culture and atiitude reminds Austrians!!! :)
