Cortina’s ski area has become more joined-up, thanks to the new 2-way Skyline lift running between Son dei Prade and Bai de Dones. Son dei Prade is at the bottom of the Tofana di Mezzo sector (and is also reachable by bus from the centre of Cortina), whilst Bai de Dones is at the bottom of the 5 Torri sector, so the new 4.6km long, 15 minute gondola ride connects the previously separate sectors.
It also means skiers staying in Cortina can get all the way to Passo Falzarego and Lagazuoi on the far side of Cinque Torri by lift and piste. From here, they can either return to Cortina via the red Lagazuoi slope, or ski down the beautiful Armentarola red run into the Alta Badia ski area (horse-drawn sleighs can pull you across the final uphill section at Capanna Alpina for a small fee). At Armentarola, there are buses and taxis back to Cortina, but skiers who are really determined to take advantage of the Dolomiti Superski pass can use the Alta Badia lifts to reach the Sella Ronda circuit, and proceed onto Val Gardena, Arabba or Val di Fassa, before taking a taxi back to Cortina.
