Italy: Eat gourmet meals, ski spectacular slopes in the Dolomites

Los Angeles Times Daily Travel & Deal blogger

Good food and good skiing are the draw for a five-day ski trip to Italy’s Dolomite Mountains.

The tour starts in Alta Badia, where skiers stay in a hotel before heading out with a guide for two days on a hut-to-hut tour. Skiers visit the Sella Massif, the high point of the Marmolada Glacier (just under 11,000 feet) and the San Pellegrino and Civetta ski resorts before skiing down the Five Towers and arriving in Cortina d’Ampezzo.

Along the way, enjoy meals with wine accenting fresh dishes typical of the South Tyrol and Trentino regions, whether you’re staying in hotels or in the huts, also called refugios. The trip ends at Cortina d’Ampezzo.

Dates: Trips are offered mid-December to mid-April.


Price: $3,686 per person, based on group of at least six skiers. It includes ski pass and mountain ski guide, lodgings (in hotel and huts), some meals, baggage transfer and more. International airfare is extra.
