Pozza di Fassa, and the hamlet of Pera, is situated in the widest point of the valley, where Rio San Nicol˛ merges with the Avisio river. The village rests in a wide and sunny hollow dominated by the Cima Undici and Cima Dodici peaks. Natural features such as the geology, rock, the Monzoni, the Gardeccia and the Torri del Vajolet, ensure that this area is much appreciated by nature and walking lovers. In recent years, the modernized "Buffaure" ski area, has become well known due to its spectacular scenery and for the quietness of its ski slopes. These aspects all guarantee this pleasant spot a particularly loyal customer base.
In winter, the Aloch piste, or Ski Stadium Val di Fassa, is very well-known and busy. Its artificial lighting enables night skiing and it is a unique ski stadium with routes suitable for international downhill skiing competitions, professional training and high-level events, night and day. Moreover, it gives cross-country skiing lovers access to both the Marcialonga racing track and the Ciancoal track which is a pleasant track, due to its variety of rhythms and the bonus of guaranteed snow. It is particularly picturesque at night as a result of its artificial lighting.
All year round Val San Nicol˛ is one of the most characteristic places. Monzoni group, on the other side of the valley, is not so popular with mountaineers, however, enjoys worldwide fame amongst geologists for its lava rock.
The place name "poza" stems from the Latin, "putea," meaning puddle. This used to refer to the hollow where water collected.
