30 centimetres of snow fell this week in Val di Fassa, adding to an existing base of 30 centimetres.

The season kicks off next weekend – 25 November – with the opening of a selection of runs in the Alpe Lusia-San Pellegrino ski area, where the cable car takes you to 2500 metres. Next to open will be Carezza on the first weekend of December followed on December 6 by the Val di Fassa ski areas of Pozza, Vigo, Canazei and our home area, Campitello.

The Sella Ronda is also scheduled to open on December 6.

It’s going to be a great season. Can’t wait to make first tracks in December.

Check out these images from the last 2 weeks. Lots of beautiful white stuff.

High altitude sauna the perfect end to the day

Written by Mario on November 17, 2017

One of our favourite hideaways has been highlighted by the Cortina Tourism as one of the “6 Unforgettable Wellness Experiences” in the Dolomites.

We agree, although we’d like to keep it our secret!

The sauna at the Rifugio Lagazuoi is the highest sauna in the Dolomites and sits perched on the mountain top with breathtaking views of the UNESCO World Heritage Area.

Cortina Tourism called it “the perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes. The refuge, run by the Pompanin Family, offers a feast for the palate as well as for the eyes with a menu full of local delicacies. Do not miss the polenta with venison, the barley soup or the sweet “kaiserschmarren” – a local crêpe served with jam – of which Guido Pompanin, the owner, is particularly proud.”

I couldn’t agree more. And nothing beats waking to fresh tracks the next day with kilometres of perfectly groomed pistes ahead of you.

Our Overnight Ski Safari to Lagazuoi can be added to your stay with us, whether you are joining a Guided Ski Week or skiing independently.

Get in touch to book your unforgettable experience!

Our wellness and spa recommendations

Written by Mario on November 17, 2017

I’m really impressed with the ever-increasing options to relax and unwind offered by some of our favourite Dolomites hotels.

A rejuvenating sauna, swim or spa at the end of the day is perfect for weary muscles. It’s a great way to balance adventure and relaxation in one holiday.

We can recommend a number of hotels with top-notch, in-house wellness facilities.

First is long-standing Dolomites Ski Tours favourite, the Hotel Medil in the village of Campitello. The Medil offers pool, sauna, spa and wellness centre.

Campitello’s Hotel Chalet Marcora offers spa, sauna and steam room for guests, while suites include private saunas.

Hotel Villa Kofler, also in Campitello, offers suites with private spa and 2-person sauna.

In nearby Canazei, the Hotel Croce Bianca has a new indoor-outdoor heated pool along with a Finnish sauna and Turkish salt cave.

Finally, in Corvara the historic Hotel Posta Zirm offers a wellness centre and swimming pool as a modern complement to traditional Alpine hospitality.
