Families looking to save a little will be especially pleased on a Cortina family ski vacation. Children ski at discounted rates in Cortina, plus there’s some ideal “learn-to-ski” terrain at Socrepes ski area, which is considered to be one of Europe’s best and biggest “nursery slopes.” Families will also appreciate Cortina’s many high-alpine green slopes, and even more blue runs.
Aspiring jibbers and freestylers in your family will be pleased to know that Cortina has a 1,600-plus-foot long terrain park with jumps, rails and boxes catered to beginners and intermediates
While the skiing is picture-perfect for families, the lodging options sway toward swanky. But there are always exceptions. For a no-frills, quaint and conveniently located hotel, the three-star Hotel Menardi is a great option. Located less than 500 yards from the chairlifts, Hotel Menardi's proximity to everything takes a lot of the confusion of getting around out of a family ski vacation. The hotel offers an indoor hot tub, full-service spa, and complimentary breakfast and ski storage. You can even bring the family dog if you choose, since pets are welcome at Hotel Mendardi.
