Corvara village

From the outskirts of the main village of the municipality of Corvara, the cable car starts on the easy to climb Mount Piz Boè

After the village of Badia, the road continues into the back part of the Val Badia valley: There you will find Corvara with its main village, called Corvara village (Corvara Dorf). Its centre consists of numerous small houses, shops and accommodation facilities, with the steeple of the small St. Catherine of Alexandria Church peeking out in the middle. It is the oldest holy site in the village.

At the edge of the village, the cable car starts on Mount Piz Boè, which takes you up to an altitude of 2,200 m and provides access to the Vallon area. Above it towers the rocky desert of Mt. Piz Boè, known as the easiest three-thousand-metre peak in the Dolomites and therefore a popular hiking destination. With the Piz Fassa Mountain Hut, there is also a place to stop for refreshments directly at the summit. Up there, at lofty heights, are also the steep passages of the Piz da Lech Via Ferrata. The Corvara biotope lake further down is a lake complex and popular destination for families.

In winter, Corvara is transformed into one of the most important ski resorts in the Dolomites. Directly in Corvara village, the Boè Cable Car is the entrance to the Alta Badia Skiing Area, which is connected to Dolomiti Superski. You can then ski clockwise or anti-clockwise around the mighty Sella Massif in one day. In December, when you return from skiing in the afternoon, the lights and atmosphere of a special Christmas Market await you, the "Marcé da Nadé" in the town square.
