I am planning a ski trip to the dolomites in December. I will be flying into Venice and planning to stay in Corvara for a week. I need help with some logistics!
1. How do you get to Corvara from Venice via public transport or ski shuttles? I looked around for Buses etc but it's just not too clear. I don't want to rent a car, unless I can drive out there without chains etc. (which I don't think is possible during that time right??) Also I'm not keen on the private shuttle services that would cost 100 - 200 Euros.
2. Once I am in Corvara, are there buses that you can take to tour other villages? eg, if I wanted to have dinner or apre ski somewhere other than Corvara? I know you can ski and stop at different places, but that is during lift operation hours correct? Also what about going to places like Cortina? or even somewhere far like Innsbruck for a day trip? Are you pretty much just stuck in one village without a car and have to depend on skiing to get around?
3. Ski Touring! there are a bunch of routes (other than Sella Ronda) that I have read up about... like the World War tour, gourmet food tour etc. Without a guide or following someone who knows the route, are you pretty much out of luck? Are there maps that will tell you how to ski the routes?
