|And please take note, this can all be done by day or by night, on lit up slopes. It's a strange, different experience, something you should try.|
About lifts and runs: numbers speak for themselves. All in all, the Cortina, San Vito di Cadore, Auronzo and Misurina ski area boasts 52 lifts, offering the opportunity to ski 14.274 meters of difference in level. There are six cable car stations, 27 chair lifts--half a dozen of these are state-of-the-art, four-seat automatic release and hitch lifts-- and 19 ski lifts.
Two innovations of last winter: two and three--seat chair lifts with take off carpets to facilitate the skiers' access to the seats. In all, the carrying capacity is 57,600 people per hour. There are 140 kilometres of runs; almost half of them are equipped with snowmaking facilities, in order to be able to cope with every kind of meteorological and climatic condition. Runs for every taste and ability: one third of the slopes are easy, 62% are runs for average ability, 5% are difficult slopes. For enthusiasts of cross country skiing, 130 kilometres of cleared, controlled trails are available. For beginners there are 300 instructors ready to teach the latest techniques, to accompany the skier along every phase of his learning, from the first steps to competitive skiing. Many of them have been exceptional national and international champions, and they offer their expertise to everyone.
