San Cassiano, Italy

* Extensive, varied slopes...
* Fabulous Dolomite scenery...
* Pleasant, relaxed village...

 

San Cassiano is a small but quietly upmarket village in a relatively secluded part of Alta Badia, just off the main Sella Ronda circuit. The low key nature of the resort is perfect for those looking for a more relaxed holiday with lots of wide gentle runs set amid magnificent Dolomite scenery.

 

The entire Alta Badia area is also a gourmet’s paradise with a brand new “slope food” concept that encourages skiers to sample high-end finger food or appetizers as part of a lunch-time tour.

The skiing

Like nearby Corvara, San Cassiano offer lots of gentle, scenic and immaculately groomed terrain -perfect for relaxed cruising. More advanced skiers will want to explore the main Sella Ronda circuit, especially around Arabba and Selva.

 

For complete beginners, there are decent nursery slopes both at valley level and at the top of the gondola, but staying in nearby Corvara is more convenient.

The resort

San Cassiano is a quiet and civilised resort set beneath typically dramatic Dolomite scenery. Although there isn’t a great deal going on for non-skiers, it is a pleasant place to while away some time with lots of beautiful winter walks on offer.

 

There are a couple of lively après-ski options immediately after the close of play, but village nightlife is very limited.
