Nestled within the stunning landscapes of the Italian Alps, the Cristallo and Faloria ski areas are a paradise for winter sports enthusiasts. These areas have attracted skiers worldwide with their well-groomed slopes, modern lifts, and breathtaking mountain views. 

The Cristallo and Faloria Ski Areas: A Winter Wonderland

Cristallo and Faloria ski areas, part of the larger Cortina d’Ampezzo ski resort, are a spectacle. Here, the pristine white snow-capped peaks kiss the azure sky, creating a breathtaking panorama that’s too beautiful to put into words.

The Cristallo ski area has many slopes catering to various skill levels. From gentle beginner runs to black diamond trails, there’s something for everyone. The high-speed lifts ensure you spend less time waiting and more time carving your way down the slopes. Moreover, the towering Cristallo Mountain offers an unforgettable backdrop, making your skiing experience even more memorable.

Moving on to the Faloria ski area, it’s equally enchanting, if not more. The slopes here are slightly steeper, offering intermediate and expert skiers a thrilling ride. The area is well-serviced by modern lifts, providing easy access to its diverse pistes. And, of course, the views are just as stunning, with the majestic Sorapiss Mountain dominating the skyline.

Embarking on a Ski Adventure with Dolomitour

Now that we’ve painted a picture of the ski areas let’s delve into the exciting ski tour led by Dolomitour’s experienced ski instructors. Starting from Rio Gere, we’ll first venture into the Cristallo ski area.

As you glide down the slopes of Cristallo, you’ll be captivated by the sheer beauty of the surroundings. The crisp mountain air, the crunch of snow under your skis, and the exhilarating sense of speed – it’s an experience like no other.

After exploring Cristallo, we move on to the Faloria ski area. Here, the slopes are more challenging but equally rewarding. You’ll feel a rush of adrenaline as you navigate the steep trails, all under the watchful eye of our skilled instructors.

At lunchtime, we’ll take a well-deserved break at the Tondi hut. This cozy mountain refuge offers hearty meals to refuel your body for the afternoon’s adventures. You can savor spectacular panoramic views of the snow-covered landscape from the hut, making your lunch break a scenic delight.

The tour’s highlight is skiing down the Vitelli slope, which gained fame during the 1956 Olympic Games as the men’s giant slalom venue. As you ski down this historic slope, you’ll get a sense of the thrill the Olympians must have felt all those years ago.

Delving into Cristallo and Faloria: Giants of the Dolomites 

The Cristallo and Faloria ski areas are nestled within two of the most impressive mounts in the Dolomites. 

The Cristallo Mountain, reaching a majestic height of 3221 meters (10,568 feet), is one of the highest peaks in this mountain range, its towering presence providing a stunning backdrop to your ski tour. Named after the Italian word for ‘crystal,’ Cristallo is a gem among the Dolomites, glistening under the winter sun and offering challenging runs that delight the seasoned skier. 

Then we have Mount Faloria, standing at 2352 meters (7716 feet). While not as high as Cristallo, this mount offers unique charm and diverse ski terrains. It combines the thrill of high-altitude skiing with the serenity of being surrounded by the awe-inspiring beauty of the Dolomites. From its peak, you’re treated to a spectacular view of Cortina d’Ampezzo, often referred to as the “Queen of the Dolomites,” and the most famous peaks of the World Heritage Site. The viewpoint presents a stunning panorama, where you can admire the awe-inspiring mountains surrounding Cortina: the Cristallo range, Croda Rossa, Pomagagnon, Tofane, Croda da Lago, and Becco di Mezzodì. And that’s not all; you can see even further into the distance on a clear day. The majestic peaks of Pelmo, Civetta, Marmolada, the Sennes group, and even the iconic Tre Cime di Lavaredo can all be seen standing proudly against the skyline. 

These two ski areas are ideal for a memorable photo opportunity or simply a moment of quiet contemplation amidst the beauty of the Dolomites.

 Together, Cristallo and Faloria promise an unforgettable ski tour experience with Dolomitour.
