With the reassurance of a stunning white backdrop and some great skiing on offer, Alta Badia’s opening season events are looking set to be more popular than ever, including:
- ‘Gourmet Ski Safari’ – following the season opening on 4 December, Alta Badia gets its gourmet ski season officially underway with Gourmet Ski Safari on Saturday 14 December. The seventh edition of this popular event will take Michelin-starred cuisine to 2,000m above sea level, with starred chefs creating their ‘A Taste for Skiing’ dishes in person, as participants ski from one hut to the next amidst the party atmosphere. Tickets cost €30 to include three dishes, each served with a paired glass of wine, with an exclusive opportunity to get to know the chefs in person and learn the story behind their dish, as they cook in person alongside their partner hut. Tickets can be bought at partner huts on the day.
- ‘Sommelier on the Slopes’ – the first date of the 2019/20 series is on 17 December 2019, offering the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of guided skiing with a professional ski instructor and sommelier. Small groups will stop at two different mountain huts to enjoy tutored tastings of some of South Tyrol’s finest wines, against the white backdrop of the Dolomites, with tickets costing just €30.00 per person to include the guided skiing and tastings. Organised together with the South Tyrol Wine Consortium and South Tyrol’s Sommelier Association, further dates are also on offer in 2020. Book early to secure a ticket –
