Winter in Alta Badia
Alta Badia is among the best ski areas in the world
With its 450 km slopes, always covered with snow, lifts and ski schools with updated teaching programs, snowpark for freestylers, you will find your own way to enjoy your time here!
Anyway, there is another side of these mountains to be enjoyed, that is unpolluted nature for hikers or bikers catching fawns while resting on the grass. Ice skating and curling on natural lakes, rushing down on sleighs, or snow ball fights allow for slow amusement which lead us back to infancy.
Moreover, there are breathtaking views for all those who love sitting on a sun-kissed terrace with the warm embrace of fur or cachemire covers, such as our famous terrace. Emotions, sensations and quiet as well as direct contact with materials and scents will add up to your exclusive holidays at Ciasa Salares. Particular attention is paid to please tasting buds and eyes, „gusto“.
Due to such a passion for cuisine, Alta Badia is well known as „the gourmet valley“.
Sport and Tourism
Towards the end of the 19th century the first skiers arrived in the Dolomites. The first steps towards winter tourism were taken during the Fascist period. The first lift in Val Badia was Col Alto, built in 1938, once called “cable sledge”. After World war II proper ski slopes and snow infrastructures were created. Skiing has become an increasingly important economic factor. Today there are cross country ski trails, slopes especially for snowboarders as well as trails for sledging. Alpine skiing and ski touring are widespread sports and nostalgia is present for those who still ski in the telemark style.
The Dolomiti Superski
At the beginning of 1960s thanks to the foresight of some entepreneurs the world’s largest ski area, DOLOMITI SUPERSKI, was brought into being. This ski carousel connects almost 450 ski lifts with only one skipass in about 40 villages in three provinces, with a total ski slope land of over 1200 km. The SELLARONDA is the jewel in the crown of the Dolomiti Superski area, a trip of about 300 km around the SELLA GROUP. The Sellaronda is unique and connects the Ladin valleys through a network of ski lifts and ski slopes.
