Corvara is the largest and best known village of Val Badia. It is located at 1500 of altitude in the heart of Alta Badia’s ski district, connected with Colfosco (and Val Gardena), with Arabba through Campolongo mountain pass, with La Villa and Pedraces. Even from Corvara you can do the Sellaronda itinerary in both directions.
In Alta Badia there are also other opportunities for winter sports: 80 km of hiking trails, countless mountaineering ski paths accompanied by guides (www.altabadiaguides.com), 34 km of tracks for cross-country ski, 3 slopes for little sledges, 'Alta Badia’s' snowpark on the plateau of Piz Sorega, the 'Fun slope Biok' playground-snowpark on the Bioch slope and a playground for younger skiers and snowboarders.
Besides skiing, Corvara offers a respectable nightlife thanks to numerous clubs that ensure the après-ski (from 4 pm to 8 pm) and many events until late at night.
The village offers very modern lifts (18 total: 2 cable cabins, 4 ski-lifts, 12 chair lifts, five of which with four seats) and very interesting slopes for alpine skiing for those who do not want to move to the other valleys. Do not miss the descent from Boè, running through a dense conifers forest with a series of exciting walls.
The many 'red' and 'blue' ski slopes around Corvara are the joy of the most laid-back skiers and families with children. Experienced skiers can, instead, try some more challenging slopes, such as Vallon - Boè (4.5 km) or the Col Alt, and try two of the most beautiful ski routes of the Alps: the Sellaronda and the "Great War ski tour".
Near Corvara, always in Val Badia, there is the World Cup slope of La Villa, which can also be reached on skis.
The district that stretches from Corvara in Val Badia and then in the Dolomiti Superski is one of the most beautiful in Europe and it can satisfy all skiers, both experienced and beginners.
