A taste for skiing
The tasty initiative on the slopes of Alta Badia, in the heart of the Dolomites
December - April
The holiday region of Alta Badia has made a name for itself as a destination that stands out for precious and enjoyable experiences in the mountains. And indeed, our region, more than any other Alpine region, is known for its ski holidays which guarantee fun, combined with Italian vitality and a certain quality of life.
Winter sports enthusiasts particularly rate Alta Badia for its numerous ski runs affording wonderfully panoramic views, its close proximity to some of the most famous ski circuits in the Alpine area, such as the ‘Sellaronda’ and the ‘First World War ski tour’, and the uniquely stunning landscape of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site.
No doubt, the initiative “A taste for skiing” is bound to have played its part in making this image so enticing by offering the unique opportunity throughout the winter to experience and enjoy the features that make our region truly special.
Local, national and international Michelin-starred chefs make a guest appearance
We have kept the successful concept of this initiative also this year. Local and international gourmet chefs will be assigned individually to one of the ski huts on the ski runs in Alta Badia, for which they will create a special dish that will be on offer throughout the winter season.
The dishes created by the chefs are made extra special by the fact that they each have a particular story attached to them featuring top-quality Italian products that are known and appreciated all over the world.
Each dish is paired with a specific wine from South Tyrol, specially selected by a renowned South Tyrolean sommelier, to present you with a sophisticated and perfect combination.
The participating chefs each have a special relationship with Alta Badia.
Some of them started their careers here in Alta Badia, following in the footsteps of local three-star chef Norbert Niederkofler (Restaurant St. Hubertus de l’Hotel Rosa Alpina), while others are familiar with Alta Badia as a holiday destination or they know our area because they have participated in culinary events.
And then there are some who were even born here and who live here, such as Nicola Laera - 1 Michelin Star (Restaurant La Stüa de Michil at Hotel La Perla).
