Alta Badia on skis: some info
The slopes in this area are located between 1,300 and 2,778 metres above sea level and the snow is always monitored and present from November to April.
Although the ski resort is very modern and well-equipped, its history goes far back. Skiing has been a traditional sport here ever since the first Italian chairlift was built in 1947, the Col Alto in Corvara.
Everything has changed since then, with considerably smaller wait times, as well as fewer crowds on the slopes. The lifts are served by modern cable cars, chairlifts and ski lifts, making it one of the best equipped and most efficient ski areas in the industry.
A favourite destination for skiers
Skiing in Alta Badia is designed for everyone, both adults and children alike, but experienced skiers choose it more than anyone else because it is the premier destination for a mountain holiday. The first winter tourists had already begun to come here in the years following the First World War, seeking refuge and relaxation. The first ski school was founded in Corvara in the 1930s and the first ski lift was built at Col Alto in 1938, a sled track.
