Making the Most of Your Stay

Dolomiti Superski boasts excellent skiing all winter long. In December and January, World Cup Ski races take place, which offer great spectating in between your own runs. January and February are a great time to visit after the rush of the Christmas and New Year holidays, and March is a gorgeous time of year to visit when snowpack is excellent, and the winter days are sunny and long.

Of course, this region offers another reason to visit all on its own: the world-class cuisine. Five different culinary worlds – made up of Ladin and South Tyrolean specialities, Veneto cuisine, and Trentino and Mediterranean flavors – come together in this area, offering an endless array of mouth-watering dining options. Take a break from skiing to indulge in a lengthy lunch at any of the 400 on-mountain huts that also serve up breathtaking vistas, such as at Lagazoui, Monte Fertazza, or Fronza alle Coronelle. In the evenings, tuck into a multicourse meal at one of the countless dinner options in the area, including 13 different Michelin star restaurants.

At the end of each day, rest and recharge at your preferred style of home away from home. With over 10,000 lodging options in the area, options range from cozy mountain hut, to charming bed and breakfast, to luxurious hotel, and beyond. Explore options and availability based on locations here.
