The Tofane Dolomite massif

West of Cortina d'Ampezzo is one of the most famous Dolomite mountains: the Tofane - three peaks that are among the highest peaks in the Dolomites. The highest peak is Tofana di Mezzo, which is in the middle. At 3,244 m, it is also the third highest peak of the Dolomites. The northernmost crag, the Tofana di Dentro has a height of 3,238 m, the Tofana di Rozes, however, is 3,225 m high and known for its south wall. All three are very popular tour destinations and offer hiking and climbing of various degrees of difficulty. There is even a mountain railway there, which leads up to the highest Summit. The 5 km long cable car "Freccia nel Cielo" connects Cortina with the Tofana di Mezzo summit. The cable car was built over three stations (Col Drusciè, Ra Valles and the summit itself). The 3rd, cable car station, at the Summit, is however, only in operation during the summer months. And the ski slopes at the foot of the Tofane in the Dolomites are famous.
