As with many towns & locations in the region, for historical reasons, Kurzas has two names & is also known as Maso Corto. Similarly, Val Senales is also referred to as Schnalstal.

The village of Kurzas-Maso Corto, along with some excellent on mountain hotel & rifugio lodgings, provides the most convenient accommodation to the ski resort. For first tracks & a bird eye view of all the surrounding mountain splendour, try a night at the highest hotel in Europe, the Glacier Hotel Grawand. Access is via the cable car direct from Kurzas.
