Heading to Corvara, Italy in a few weeks - anybody ever been?

Hi All -

New to the forum... posted an into a little while ago...

Heading on a snowboard trip to Corvara in Badia, in the Dolomites... in ~2 weeks.

Never rode out there... interested to see if anyone has been. Any suggestions of hills to check out.. backcountry spots to look into.. etc...

No but I heard that the region is absolutely beautiful. The food should be spectacular as well - Italians seem to take food more seriously than sport. If you don't get much info here there's a UK based (mostly skier) forum called Snowheads that'll be packed full of information. They seem to love the dolomites.

Lovely scenic place, nice town, great selection of pistes and the Sella Ronda circuit which I managed in 3 hours solo. We were there and roundabouts for 2 months this time last year in the motorhome, I like Italy and will be back there again next year.

Have fun, plenty to explore.

Didn't stay in Corvara but been to Selva-Val Gardena, which is another village close by. Dolomiti SuperSki terrain is top notch and your pass gives you access to ton of it. Sella Ronda circuit (clockwise or counter clockwise) is a great way to start your trip. You can then expand by venturing to the various villages in the region. You won't realize it, but very easy to ride 30-40 km to a village and back.

If you're interested in backcountry, you can hire a guide to take you across the region. You stay in mtn huts each night while trekking and riding during the day. I haven't done it but I'd imagine it's a great experience if you're looking for something unique.
