Moena - 1,184m

At the head of the valley as you approach from the south, Moena is a smart resort, very popular with Italians. The bustling centre of the village is festooned with smart shops, bars and restaurants. Skiers can choose between skiing the Trevalli area (100km) or Val di Fassa (122km). There is an excellent ski bus service to Trevalli, and if the conditions allow, it's possible to ski back to Moena. However, if you don't have a car, access to the ski areas of Val di Fassa is difficult, as there is just one ski bus in each direction each day so if staying here the Trevalli ski area is your best bet.

Vigo di Fassa - 1,393m

The village of Vigo di Fassa, next along from Moena, is smaller and quieter with a traditional feel. It is well situated for access to the Vigo-Catinaccio cable car up to the Ciampedie ski area. It is also the closest village to the Carezza ski area, well served by the Val di Fassa ski bus. Vigo di Fassa is home to the Ladin Museum, a celebration of the culture and traditions of the Val di Fassa, as well as the Ladin Cultural Institute.

Pozza di Fassa - 1,320m

Continuing north along the valley, Pozza di Fassa is in the heart of the Val di Fassa. Here, the ski lift system rises to the Buffaure area, and and across to Ciampac/Alba (from the Alba base there is a frequent shuttle to the Canazei base area, jut one kilometre away). It is one of the most popular villages for visitors, with more guest beds than any other village except for Canazei, and as well as the skiing has attractions such as the natural Spa Centro Terme Dolomia. The night skiing on the Aloch run is also very popular and is used by racers for training purposes.

Campitello di Fassa - 1,448m

Part of the popularity of Campitello is because it gives direct access to the Sella Ronda and the Dolomiti Superski circus beyond. As well as its location, Campitello is very well known for its typical rustic architecture and narrow streets. A much smaller village than its' neighbour Canazei, Campitello has just over 700 permanent inhabitants, although this number is greatly swollen by visitors during the season.

Canazei -1,465m

Canazei (including Alba) is the biggest and most popular of the Val di Fassa resorts, with over 14,000 beds in hotels and apartments available for guests. From Canazei, skiers head to the Belvedere area, and then on to the Sella Ronda tour, and the expanses of the Dolomiti Superski beyond. Alba, on the other hand, allows skiers to ski at Ciampac and over to Buffaure (Pozza di Fassa). On this basis alone, it is easy to see why this is the most attractive resort to skiers. It also has the best night life of all the villages and the superb Eghes Wellness Centre.
