Southeast of Trento and southwest of Brunico, the Val di Fassa ski area is a popular destination for snowboarders. The town of Pozza di Fassa makes a great base for snowboarders and the lifts interconnect with Canazei.
The Val di Fassa ski area part of the Dolomiti Superski region which has over 1,200km of pistes spread over 12 valleys that served by 450 lifts. While a single skipass gives access to the Dolomiti Superski region, keep in mind that the 12 valley are not all interconnected and you may need bus transport between valleys. Also, the snowfall in this southernly ski region is known to vary greatly season to season. Keep in mind that there is limited off-piste snowboarding in the Dolomiti Superski region -- it is prohibited in most areas and guides are highly-recommended in the others.
If you are looking for a really big day of shredding, try the 40km Sella Ronda ski safari from Cortina to Val Gardena and back. The route loops the scenic, colossal Sella Ronda massif while passing villages including Fassa, Gardena, Badia, Selva, and Canazei. It is best done clockwise and may take up to six hours depending upon the crowds.
When you are ready for some apres ski action, check out Montanara.
