Val di Fassa is a key and famous ski region in the Dolomiti Super-ski, rich in history, culture and natural beauty. Its ancient history is dominated by its Ladin heritage and the Ladin language is still spoken, alongside German and Italian. The skiing of Val di Fassa/Carezza and its neighboring Tre Valli's skiing is spread over eight separate ski areas ranging in size from 15 km above Alba to 100 km above Moena/San Pellegrino. They officially add up to 220 km of trails, but as all are on the Dolomiti Super-ski ticket, and as the lifts above Canazei lift link to the Sella Ronda circuit which lift links Val Gardena, Alta Badia and Arabba like spokes on a wheel, also all on the Dolomiti Super-ski ticket, the area claims there are approximately 510 km of skiing "in and around" Val di Fassa. The addition of Val Gardena and Alta Badia make this claim in fact a rather conservative estimate, the reality nearer double that total. Alba is an attractive small resort located at one end of the Fassa Valley, with it's own ski area on Ciampac and easy access to the Sella Ronda via the nearby lift access at Canazei. It's also close to the Marmolada Glacier for snow-sure skiing. Canazei is a very attractive, lively roadside village set below well forested slopes. Along with Moena, it has grown to become one of the largest villages in the Fassa Valley, probably due to the fact it is the main resort for direct access to the Sella Ronda. Campitello is a traditional village set back from the main road. The beginner's slope in the village are particularly good and there are several lively bars nearby. Vigo and Pozza di Fassa are particularly attractive villages each with their own cozy ski areas and perhaps the strongest influence of history and culture in the whole valley. The large village of Moena stands on the border of the Fassa Valley and the TreValli sectors of the Dolomiti Super-ski and is the closest resort in the area to Bolzano.
Located in the heart of the Dolomiti Superski Region, Vigo di Fassa is a friendly village. The local skiing is one of the larger sectors of the huge Dolomiti Superski pass (covering 1040km) and is close to the Sella Ronda circuit (linked by free ski bus), which is arguably the third largest ski area in the world.
