Colfosco was originally a mountainous settlement, but herdsmen and farmers began to stay here, creating a permanently populated village. Until the 19th century life was very difficult here, mostly related to mountaineering and forestry. Colfosco now has a population of about 500. Tourism and related activities are definitely The main industry in the area.

As a larger town, it is also the seat of the municipality, the town has a kindergarten and a school and is the center of the Dolomites' shipping culture. At the end of the 19th century, the region was discovered by mountaineers and later by skiers. The beauty of the region was transmitted across borders by English geologists exploring the Dolomites.
The first ski school was established shortly after World War I, the first ski lift was erected in 1938, and in 1946, the first chairlift in Italy -
the Col Alto chairlift - was erected there. In the '70s, the region was rapidly developing into a world-renowned ski resort.
