Part of the Alta Badia ski area, Colfosco has central access to nearby Gardena Pass, Corvara and San Cassiano, as well as the Sellaronda circuit, through a modern interconnected lift system. Known for its beautiful views over the Dolomites, the resort is a favourite for families and, additionally, has excellent snowmaking facilities.
Surrounded by gentle slopes, families visiting Colfosco tend to head straight for the sunny Edelweiss Valley. In this sense, the village is ideal for families with children and beginners, due to its easy blue runs that are mostly in the sun. More confident skiers can easily reach the vast array of runs found in the Sellaronda and Alta Badia regions.
Beginner snowboarders will find Colfosco an easy place to learn with good progress slopes found further up the mountain. Intermediates and advanced boarders are better to head over to the Alta Badia regions where there are multiple snowparks with jumps and rails, as well as chances to go off-piste.

Although smaller and quieter, the delightful village has some stand-out restaurants of its own. Restaurant Pizzeria L’Tabladel offers traditional Ladin specialities, including homemade pasta. If you enjoy a casual, calm atmosphere then Colfosco won’t disappoint. Treat yourself to the renowned Altrove bar’s selection of fine cheeses and fanciful sandwiches or bask on the sun terrace of Restaurant Mathiaskeller.
Colfosco has more of a relaxed and quiet nature, but there are a small number of lively après bars within resort. With direct access from the slopes, Restaurant Mathiaskeller is popular for a well-deserved drink after a day's skiing.
Most of the lifts in Colfosco are accessible to pedestrians, meaning non-skiers can head off for a walk and then easily meet the skiers in their group at one of the beautiful lunch spots on the mountain. If you're wanting to explore the beautiful surrounding areas then we'd recommend hiring a car - it's well worth it so you can experience the local Italian villages.
