! Each one has its own character and little enchanting corners! The main ones are Corvara, Colfosco and La Villa, but enchanting slopes, gourmet restaurants and local shops can be found everywhere! Corvara, Colfosco and the Gardena Pass are also part of the Sellaronda
round ski path, while the "Gran Risa" slope in La Villa every December is the set of the Ski World Cup
