Après-ski facilities in Cortina
Cortina in the Dolomite region of Italy is renowned for being one of the classiest but also most expensive apres-ski resorts. Cortina boasts a wide variety of slopes for beginners and experienced skiers alike, as well as plenty of bars and restaurants to relax in after a tough skiing session.
Cortina - the ski resort
Cortina is the leading resort of the Dolomite Region, being the classiest, but also one of the costliest of all European ski destinations. It is a genuinely pretty town with some of the most awesome scenery anywhere in the ski world. Cortina boasts a wide variety of slopes for all abilities as well as many activities for non-skiers – this makes the resort a popular winter getaway for all, particularly those who want to see and be seen!
Cortina isn't all about the skiing. Lively Cortina is the place where the beautiful people gather! So much so, that it is estimated the majority of visitors don’t even ski during their visit. There is an overriding Italian chic in the resort with its bars, patisseries, pubs and wine-bars circled around Cortina town center.
There are more than 20 bars, five nightclubs and over 40 restaurants serving mainly French and Italian cuisine in Cortina. Nightclubs to try include Area Ronco, Nuovo Centro, Blu room and Vip Club Corso Italia. Bars with late opening beyond midnight include Bar Gelateria Rubens, Birreria Hacker Pschorrz and Enoteca Brio di Vino.
Cortina is great for the food lovers too – although make sure you have the cash to splash in the more top end restaurants. We like La Tavernetta – good rustic food at a reasonable price.
