Winter in the Italian Alps
There is plenty of fun to be had in Alta Badia, in the South Tyrolean Dolomites
Alta Badia owes its name "Heart of the Dolomites" to its geographic location in the centre of the Dolomites region as well as to the warmth of its people. Typical for Alta Badia, the inviting valley in South Tyrol, are its impressive Dolomite rocks towering over smooth slopes.
The unique Dolomite landscapes that make Alta Badia one of the most beautiful open air theatres in South Tyrol and, in fact, the Alps, have been named a UNESCO World Heritage site and inspire their visitors time and time again.
For more than 50 years, the 6 villages of Alta Badia have been synonymous for winter holidays in the Alps to active holidaymakers and skiers.
Ever since Italy's first chair lift was built in 1946 - the chairlift Col Alto in Corvara - skiers have spent their holidays in Alta Badia. Since then, Alta Badia has seen further touristic development every year and has become one of the most popular winter holiday destinations in the Dolomites.
Experienced skiers value the multi-faceted skiing resort at the Sella Ronda and its masterfully groomed slopes and modern lifts.
Besides skiing, snowboarding, cross-country-skiing, winter hiking or snowshoe hiking, winter holidays in Alta Badia are also characterised by relaxation, wellbeing and gourmet treats in the inimitable Dolomite mountains.
