Welcome to Val di Fassa
Val di Fassa is Trentino's only Ladin-speaking valley, framed by the stirring peaks of the Gruppo del Sella to the north, the Catinaccio to the west and the Marmolada (3342m) to the southeast. The valley has two hubs: Canazei (population 1866, elevation 1465m), beautifully sited but verging on overdeveloped, and the pretty riverside village of Moena (population 2690, elevation 1114m), more down to earth and increasingly environmentally conscious. Fassa is the nexus of Italy's cross-country skiing scene. Italian cross-country champ Cristian Zorzi hails from Moena and the town also plays host to the sport's most illustrious mass-participation race, the annual Marcialonga.
