Great great mountain. Deep snow and the best tree skiing in the world. Not fair to call it a throwback to days gone by because the resort lodge is modern and the amenities great. Cortina is a little off the beaten path but this only adds to its charm.... More

Out of all the resorts in the valley Cortina was one of my favourites, probably because the day we were there it was dumping! Lift lines were short, the staff were friendly and accommodating and great value for money! Would recommend.... More

Don't go there! There is no powder, all the off-piste is OB and the lift lines are huge! Hotel's onsen is dirty and small. Locals hate people from abroad. Terrible.... More
