Cortina d'Ampezzo, one of the most popular mountain resorts of the Dolomites, is already preparing to host the 2026 Winter Olympic Games. Which means that ski aficionados will be able to enjoy newly opened slopes and lifts, to be later used by competing athletes. Cortina offers more than 140 km of pistes, with legendary ski areas such as Cristallo, Faloria, Cinque Torri and Pocol-Tofana, all with spectacular views of the Dolomites.

If you’re heading to Cortina this winter, there’s a new ski run set amid the breathtaking landscape of Cinque Torri, a mountain group formed by five ‘towers’, hence the name: it is the so-called Lino Lacedelli track, a 1.5 km variant of the main Cinque Torri track, named after the mountaineer who conquered K2 in 1954; Lacedelli was also the first president of the local Averau Ski Lifts company, which celebrates 50 years since its foundation in 2020.
