Lying nearly directly north of Venice, Corvara is a 380km transfer from Milan, so is better serviced by Innsbruck airport in Austria just 130km away. Sitting at just over 1500m in the heart of the Italian Dolomites, Corvara is part of Alta Badia ski area and has access to 130km of pistes. However, anyone who has been knows that the charm of the Dolomites is in the towns and the scenery and Corvara doesn’t disappoint. Dramatic faces and peaks rise up around the town, and gentle, snowy slopes are the perfect introduction to the sport. Combined with great food, a traditional atmosphere and a south-facing orientation that brings plenty of sunshine, Corvara is a wonderful place to get away to when high-altitude skiing isn’t priority number one. Still, there’s plenty to do here, and well-groomed slopes with good snowmaking facilities make Corvara are relatively safe bet throughout the season. Corvara highlights: Beautiful mountain town packed with blue slopes that will take you all through the surrounding mountains at a gentle, leisurely pace. Corvara is best for: Those who want a ski holiday where relaxation and beauty come first. The town offers great food and apres options as well as accessible skiing for all levels.
Corvara lies at the heart of the Alta Badia ski area, which includes San Cassiano, La Villa, Badia, and Colfosco, and enjoys a far-reaching network of slopes that will have you winding through pine forests and over pristine snowfields in equal part. Skiers whose skills lie firmly in the beginner to intermediate range will find the most enjoyment in Alta Badia, where the black and red runs are fewer and further between, accessed only from the highest lifts, which only just reach to the 2,000m mark. The resort is fairly snowsure, however, and skiing back to the town is often possible, weather and conditions permitting. Though, with 392 snow cannons and 56 lifts, the area has the infrastructure to endure a dry winter. But as with all Dolomite resorts, snow is likely, and drifts well into the narrow mountain passes. Still, if it’s powder lines you’re chasing, leaping off the sides of the groomed blues is your best bet as the steep passes aren’t especially accessible without hiking. Experts and boarders will find little to get their hearts pumping, but the relative quietness of its slopes means that you can escape the crowds of the larger French and Austrian resorts to focus on your technique and cruise the powder fields in peace, if you’re so inclined. First-time and beginner skiers: Blue runs make up over half of Corvara’s marked slopes, and wind gently down mild inclines back towards the town, making this low lying resort the perfect place to get your winter-legs before venturing into the Alps to tackle steeper challenges. Intermediate skiers: A good proportion of red runs will satisfy the intermediate skier providing that variety isn’t necessary to keep you interested. This is aided by the stunning mountain views and traditional Italian charm. Expert skiers: While some blacks may keep expert skiers entertained, the number and length of the ones that are available will be quickly exhausted, leaving them with endless blues that do little to keep adrenaline levels high.

From a three-year-old’s the first steps on snow in the children’s snow garden to teenagers confidently crushing black runs and getting in to the snowpark you’ll find ski lessons for children of all ages and ability in Corvara (which can come in handy when you suddenly realise your kids have become better skiers than you!). We’re probably (more than) a bit biased but at SkiBro we think that properly laying the foundation for a lifetime on the slopes - free of bad habits - is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their children. SkiBro’s partner ski schools and instructors are all fully certified and have years of experience providing kids’ ski lessons that focus not only on technical instruction but also fun and safety.

Did you know that nearly a third of all group ski lessons are beginner adult group lessons? It sounds surprising but group ski lessons are a great way to learn to ski; surrounded by other people of a similar age and ability level who are also trying something new. Group lessons are also great for progressing from a beginner skier to a more independent intermediate. With quality coaching for a few hours each day you can spend your mornings working on your technique before grabbing a bite to eat and explore everything the mountain has to offer with your friends and family in the afternoons.
Private instruction is just that – a ski instructor solely devoted to you (and any friends or family you choose to invite) for a given period of time. These lessons are offered both by formal ski and snowboard schools as well as by freelance instructors – certified independent instructors working for themselves or in loose collectives. A private ski instructor in Corvara can offer you a level of flexibility and individual attention beyond what group lessons can. For some people one short, intensive, session with a private instructor will teach them more than they’d get from a full week of group lessons. For many people, however, the inverse would be true and the repetition and additional practice in group lessons is invaluable.
Considered by those who get into it as skiing in its purest (and most fun!) form, freeride (also known as off piste or backcountry) skiing is the pursuit of skiing all over the mountain, unrestricted by the edge of the piste in a variety of snow conditions. A good day’s freeride skiing might involve long descents down wide open mountain faces, steep couloirs and adventures through the trees, far away from the crowded pistes. In addition to private ski instructors and mountain guides you can sometimes find camps and courses designed to give upper-intermediate skiers their first taste of off-piste delights in Corvara. Be careful though, the white powder can be quite addictive.
From ‘never-evers’ to semi-pros you’ll find a snowboard lesson in Corvara designed to take you riding to the next level. If you’re thinking small, think big. And if you’re thinking big- think bigger! If you’re new to a resort or even if you’re returning to an old favourite, a top snowboard instructor or group snowboard lessons will help you unlock local secrets of the area that you’ll wish you knew about years ago! Flatland tricks, jibbing, carving trenches, slaying powder – stop being a slave to your snowboard and learn to master it!
