Before skiing down the magnificent ski piste Lagazuoi, take a break and admire the majestic panorama of the Dolomite peaks all around you, from the Tofana group to the Marmolada to the Sella group. The terrace of Rifugio Lagazuoi offers undoubtedly the best view.
It is a technically refined slope with frequent changes of gradient and wide curves.
At the start, the piste faces north, then east, thereafter south, then west and finally again south.
These frequent changes of direction and consequently of perspectives offer many different panoramic views.
This ski run doesn‘t only offer scenic views, it also has a great historical value: the slope crosses the front line on Mt. Lagazuoi during the First World War, the Austrian trenches on the ridge and, where the panorama opens onto Col Gallina, the Italian trenches.
The slope winds over a length of 2400 m with a height difference of 635 m and returns in wide curves to the Falzarego pass. Here you can either take again the cable car or continue the run to the Armentarola piste.
Thanks to the programmed snow-making system and the exceptional trail grooming, the descent is always in excellent condition.
The Lagazuoi area is part of the ski carousel Dolomiti Superski and is therefore well-connected to the slopes of the adjacent valleys through ski buses and public transport services and, on skis, through the new gondola lift Tofana-5 Torri, even directly from Cortina d'Ampezzo, simply taking the Freccia nel Cielo cable car!
