With the highest lifts and ski slopes at 2250m the area is not snow sure. Over 40 snow cannons ensure artificial snow making covers 24km of trails, which equates to around 100 of the slopes. The nearest airport transfer to Cavalese is Verona at a distance of 160km or approximately 150 minutes driving time. Their season runs from December to April.

SNO-man says

One of the major centres in the Val di Fiemme, with all facilities, and a great base for skiers who can access the resort's own large ski area on Alpe Cermis, or the Ski Center Latemar with access from Pampeago or Predazzo.

"Cavalese" by any other name

The Italian resort is also known as Cavalese Lagorai and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Cavalese slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition. Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Cavalese has slopes facing N.
