Lifts

Col Alto

Corvara/Corvara, Corvara, Dolomites Region Alta Badia
from center of

The 8-seater gondola lift connects the town of Corvara, in winter as well as in summer, with the homonymous hill above the town.

It was 1938 when a carriage for skiers was built in Corvara towards Col Alto, a sledge lift. The sledge lift was replaced in 1946 by a chair lift. It was the first chairlift in Italy. Improvements and renovations have been made several times over the years. Most recently, the chairlift was replaced by the current 8-seater gondola lift.

From the valley station of the gondola lift, hiking trails and MTB trails connect with the Piz La Ila - Piz Sorega - Pralongiá plateau. At the mountain station of the gondola lift, there is also an e-mtb sharing point in which you can rent an electric mountain bike which can be delivered to one of the other participating rental points.

In winter, the sunny and perfectly prepared Col Alto slopes connect Corvara to the Alta Badia ski area. On one of the slopes that descends from the Col Alto, cameras have been installed on the slopes. They will record your descent upon request. The video can then be downloaded.
