"Rather than the creation of new ski runs, more attention has been put towards the constant improvement of the already existing lift facilities, with more safety and comfort, better and safer slopes and smoother connections that do not require you to take off your skis." Said a spokesman for the Dolomiti Superski of which Cortina is a part.

90% of the area's 1200km (750 miles) of runs are now covered by the artificial snow making.
