Hello

I wonder if there is any prozian from this region who could give some tips.

I am spending a week here remembering what I learnt about skiing 20 years ago...

This little info might be useful for people who may be planning to go, although any extra would be more than welcome:

The area is simply gorgeous and seems to be very popular in the winter for skiing and in the summer for walking in the mountains.

There are two down sides, one that the customer service (like in many tourist towns, in many countries, I guess) is not amazing, certainly the smile in the faces is rarely seen; the other is that eating and entertainment seems very expensive. Some examples:
- 50ml of sunblock = €12
- mulled wine = €2.50

more scary
- 6 day pass for the area (in my case Val di Fassa/carezza, zone 5= €155 —the one for the whole Sellaronda area was €178)

- average meal out, €15-20


I went to the TO asking where Canazeians (?) did their weekly shopping and they say this town is expensive for everybody! So make sure you arrive with all expensive things already bought (eg.: Spanish might want to bring with them, apart from sun cream, etc., all their stock of chorizo, jamón y queso...).

If you want to have freedom to go wherever you want, do indeed buy the Sellaronda pass, if you buy the Val di fassa/carezza (zone 5) and you are intermediate you will be very restricted.

If there is any prozian from Canazei or who knows the area, could you please recommend cheap places (supermarkets, restaurants, bars)?; skiing routes (for beginners and for intermediates); interesting things around.

Also, would you recomend any nice, maybe 3 hours long routes for beginners-intermediates?; so far, I have skied in Alba (which is not bad at all).

Any tips welcome!

Kind regards!

Marta
