Twelfth Annual Summer Interdisciplinary Conference

Climate, Weather, Clothing

Cortina city center is at an altitude of 1224 m (4015 ft), and is surrounded by Dolomite mountain groups up to a height of 3244 m (10,643 ft). The altitude insures cool temperatures. In late July the average high temperature in town is about 70 degrees F, and the average low is about 50 degrees F. Of course these temperatures can be lower as one heads up into the mountains. Nonetheless the summer sun can be quite hot and sun cream is usually a necessity. July gets more rain than any other month, averaging about 4.3 inches for the month, usually in the form of late afternoon or early evening showers. One should come prepared with rain gear. Those intending activities in the mountains should of course bring appropriate clothing and gear.
