These mountains are not only for skiers, they inspire lots of other sports.

Above any expectation


Those who come to spend their winter holiday in Vilin & Ruances Apartments in San Cassiano will hardly avoid the immersion into the world of skiing. The cable cars of Piz Sorega and Piz La Ila are well seen from the windows. Then, 5 minutes by free ski bus and you are at the gates of a large ski area with 130 km of ski runs suitable for any difficulty level – even the most experienced skiers can’t help being astonished by the dimensions of Alta Badia, a part of the immense Dolomiti Superski area with 1200 km of ski runs, 500 km of which can be reached from Alta Badia with your skis on! It’s more than a ski area, it’s an idea, a holiday concept that enchants and attracts every skier and snowboarder.

The advantage of San Cassiano, beautifully nestled at the end of the Badia valley, is a comfortable access to the most spectacular ski tours of the Dolomites: from famous Sellaronda to the brand-new Super8 Ski Tour. But Alta Badia itself is also able to excite every day with new adventures. Lots of easy and sunny slopes, which are perfect for the first turns, are combined here with excellent black runs approved by ski champions, like the legendary Gran Risa World Cup slope. And if the passion for skiing doesn’t wane after sunset, the illuminated slope Doninz in La Villa offers once a week the possibility of night skiing. Thrill-seekers will have a great time in the powder snow and in the Movimënt areas. Even Nordic skiers in Alta Badia can fully experience the charm of the Dolomites thanks to 30 km of perfectly prepared cross-country trails. Lots of care for the skiers’ comfort is perceived here in every detail: from the maintenance of mountain lifts and the spotless preparation of ski slopes to cutting-edge snowmaking technologies that guarantee a 5-star skiing experience even during the first days of the winter season.
