Alta Badia: Dolomites Getaway

The Dolomites ski region provides one of the largest and most delicious ski networks in the world. Named after the limestone rock that is found naturally in these spectacular mountains, the terrain offers more than 1,200km of “guaranteed” pistes ranging between 950m and 3,269m in elevation and up to 12km long.

It may not have the glitz of Gstaad or apre-ski scene of Verbier, but instead you will find gorgeous small villages offering a true Italian foodie experience, as you combine an impressive high alpine environment, beautiful rifugios, history and great skiing.

Where to Stay

The family-run Hotel Kolfuschgerhof is in the pretty village of Colfosco, on the edge of Corvara. It's just 200m from the lifts so you're perfectly placed for the Sella Ronda. And when you've tackled the whole circuit you can relax in the excellent spa, which has an indoor pool, steam room, whirlpool and no less than 4 different types of sauna to choose from.
