Val di Fassa

Val di Fassa is one of the principal valleys in the Dolomite Mountains, situated in the northeast of the Region of Trentino Alto Adige

Made up of seven communes or municipal governments (Moena, Soraga, Vigo di Fassa, Pozza di Fassa, Mazzin, Campitello di Fassa, and Canazei), it is traversed by the Avisio stream - a tributary of the Adige River - and is surrounded by some of the most famous Dolomite peaks, such as the Marmolada the Sella Group, the Catinaccio Group and the Sassolungo.Val di Fassa photo by Marco Simonini 2009It is the only valley in Trentino (together with the Gardena and Badia Valleys in Alto Adige and the Valley of Livinallongo in Veneto), where still today the Ladin Language is spoken (more precisely, Dolomite Ladin). 

The primary activities in Val di Fassa relate to tourism, in both summer and winter.

Without a doubt, the major attraction is always and ever, skiing: the ski resorts here are part of the consortium Dolomiti Superski, the largest of its kind in the world.
