Italy's leading resort of Cortina is offering special prices for early skiers from the first day of the winter season; Nov. 28 through to Dec. 23, 2009.

Ski in Cortina for four days for the price of three; five days for the price of four; six days for the price of five; seven days for the price of six; or eight days for the price of six. The offer applies to both accommodation and ski passes.

The Skipass bonus days are organised by participating hotels in the skiing area and must be redeemed via voucher provided by the hotel. There are also special lower rates for ski courses and equipment from ski schools and ski hire outlets.

The offer is valid across all resorts of the giant Dolomiti Superski region, which was recently designated a UNESCO world heritage site. Other main resorts in the Dolomiti Superski region include Alta Badia, Val Gardena, Alpe di Siusi, Alta Pusteria, and Obereggen.

The mountains here stretch as far as the eye can see, with 1200 kilometres of ski runs, almost 100-percent guaranteed snow from near complete snow making cover (so long as it is cold enough), a record of sunshine on eight out of 10 days and culinary delights from five traditional cuisine cultures: South Tyrolean, Trentinian, Venetian, Ladin and Mediterranean.
