“Kronplatz ski area is excellent for all ski abilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

A group of eleven family and friends visited this area in half term, age range from 23 years to 73 years, we all had a brilliant time. Cheaper prices than France, piste immaculately groomed and plenty of runs for all abilities. Would highly reccommend Mountainsun Ltd who have two excellent Hotel/Chalets in this area.

“Good skiing - food is memorable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

We visited Dolomites for the week starting 14th January and stayed in Campitello Val Di Fassa in Hotel Diamant 4* (there is dedicated review here). Every morning we used Col Rodena lift. That was the low season. The adult ski pass costs 185EUR for 6 days for all areas. It is possible to buy ski pass for limited area but it doesn’t make any sense. There is no ski pass for 5 out 6 days so you can not select one day for rest depending how you feel. The gondola lift is open starting 8 am. If you go in between 9 and 10 am be prepared to stay in line for 20-30 minutes (in low season). When you are first time if Dolomites it is real challenge to understand the map. It doesn’t contain the number for slopes but has only notes for lifts. The ski area is really big and for every choice and skills level. The slopes are very well prepared and maintained. There was not that many snow but we had no complains about the slopes quality. We were very lucky with the weather. First five days there were sunny weather with temp around 8-9C with not that much of a wind. There was the snow storm on the day 6 when the visibility went down to 2-3 meters. There are two routes when it is possible to do the complete circle Sella Ronda: 1. Orange Sella Ronda – you ski clock wise - for more experience skiers and Green Sella Ronda – easy one – opposite direction. We did only easy one leaving from Val Di Fassa. The first three quarters was good but the last quarter you travel mainly by lifts. In Ciampinoi we had real challenge with slope 5. Try to avoid it as it is broken literally from the morning and use slope 6 instead to go down. Really enjoyed St. Cristiano (spelling) – you need to take small metro to get there. There is big variety of wide slopes but carefully plan your time. There is special route where you have 10 km of slopes.
The lift system is well developed and designed. We didn’t observe that much of lines. The eating places are great – really enjoyed the food and drinks . Be prepared that there is NO après-ski in the valleys.
That’s the first place I have seen police on the skies. It seems that the place is well maintained for security purposes.
Overall we enjoyed it but I would personally prefer Austria for skiing. Food on the mountain is really remarkable and memorable.

“Good skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

The directions on the slopes not very good and it was difficult to follow the skimap if it is your first visit. Biggest problem is that the skimap does not show the number/name of the runs, only the number of the diffirent ski lifts.

“Almost unlimited skiing for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We have skiied the dolamites for several years and have found it wonderful. The sxtent of the ski fields is mind blowing with many ski fields joined either by lifts but also more by busses or underground railway. One could ski 50kms a day for a week and hardly ski the same slopes. Thelift systems are fantastic; our longist ever wait less than ten mins usually two or three!

“Great skiing, not for the feint hearted”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

A group of six of us visited the Dolomites for a ski trip 14th to 21st January. The ski area is extensive and you will not run out of new places to ski. We stayed in Canazei where the immediate area is mainly red runs not suitable for beginners. If you need gentler slopes head for Pera or Campalongo. Be warned there is pretty much a standard taxi fare of €20 per person each way in a taxi for longer journeys, this is easily resolved by following a route using the free ski buses if you want to go further afield.
We stayed at the hotel Dolomiti, the three star rating is acurrate and the facilities are average for the rating. Staff were friendly and helpful. All the double rooms were of a good standard but there are 3 single rooms in the hotel which leave a lot to be desired, vey small and pokey, it's worth paying the extra.
The resort is not known for its après ski but we had a couple of rowdy nights in the Heller Keller and the Rosengarten bars, Wine & Dine is great to relax and Kaiser Strube is very friendly and great for bar food.
We would all return to the Dolomites as it is such a fantastic ski area, there are plenty of resorts, runs and bars to choose from. Canazei is predominantly Italian so don't expect many uk people, there were a lot of Russian skiers who, despite being very apologetic, took out our party and others on the slopes repeatedly. It might be our personal experience but it seemed to happen very frequently. It was also a free for all on ski lifts and pubic transport. We had no problems with communication, English, German and French are spoken widely in the resort.
Ski passes are average for the area but then aren't they expensive everywhere!
