Santa Caterina Valfurva is an italian ski resort, located in the Valtellina region (along with Bormio and Livigno). It is located right in the Stelvio National Park, one of the most popular and well preserved natural parks of North of Italy.
Made famous by the Alpine World Cup in 2005, Santa Caterina has already become one of the top ski destinations in Italy. The convenient direct access from Santa Caterina town to the ski slopes, its great snow quality and the modern infrastructure make Santa Caterina Valfurva a superb destination for a sporty ski trip.
The ski resort features 16km of ski runs, which are for the most part intermediate terrain, as well as more challenging ski slopes, like the Deborah Compagnoni ski run. Santa Caterina has 10 modern ski lifts, and 1000+ m of vertical drop.
Several small and medium size ski schools work in the area; they employ certified instructors, well used to an international public, italian and english-speaking ski instructors. The most popular ski lessons in the area are kids group ski lessons and private ski lessons.
