In Cortina, there is a long tradition of cross-country skiing: in February 1927 the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships took place, in 1936 the first cross-country skiing Palio (competition) was held, making it the oldest competitive event in the Ampezzo Valley, and in 1956 the Winter Olympics, which included cross-country skiing events, were held in Cortina. In addition, the European Students Championships were held on the Tre Croci competition pistes, and athletes from the Italian national and Olympic teams, such as Maurilio De Zolt, Pietro Piller Cottrer, Silvio Fauner, Anna Comarella and Ole Einar Bjørndalen, trained there.
In Cortina, the pistes can be subdivided into two main areas:
In Cortina there are over 70 km of pistes of various types at different levels of technical difficulty. They are perfectly cut and prepared: from easy, flat and straight pistes, to sporty routes, with multiple pistes and extra space for skate skiers. For access to the cross-country pistes, a ticket should be purchased directly at the Fiames Sport Nordic Center, or you should hold a Dolomiti Nordicski ticket.
