La Villa, in the Trentino-Alto Adige region of Italy, is situated at the foot of the Sassongher Mountain linking with the Dolomites’ famous Sella Ronda ski circuit
. Located between Corvara and San Cassiano, it is one of the main ski villages in the region of Alta Badia - a UNESCO world heritage site. Every December La Villa hosts the Alpine Ski World Cup on the Gran Risa slope - one of the most technically difficult slopes of the entire Alpine area.
La Villa has a grand tradition of welcoming skiers from all over the world, and is known for first class gastronomy and traditional Ladino mountain culture. At the centre of the village there is a range of shops, bars and restaurants. The main language is Ladin – a throwback to Roman times when Latin and a local dialect merged. But don’t worry – English is widely spoken.

Ski and Snowboard Information
Limited skiing for beginners however once you have spent a few days in ski school there are plenty of blue runs over on the Corvara side of the ski area to strech legs and enjoy
A paradise for intermediate skiers who can choose between just skiing the lcoal area of Alta Badia or taking on the challenge of skiing the Sella Ronda from Corvara either clockwise of anti clockwise where there is a host of satisfying red runs
Confident skiers have a range of mountains to ski over 1.220km piste. Spend a day over in Selva Where you will find Steep runs to keep you occupied and challenged. Off piste Cortina and the Hidden Valley are a must.
Snowboarders will love the snowpark Alta Badia at the Piz Sorega Plateau between the slopes "La Freina" and "Ciampai" with boardercross, rails and jumps to suit your level.
