Arrival on your own (or by transfer on request) and check in to your 4-star hotel in Alta Badia, in Italy's South Tyrol. This area is known for its breathtaking views, miles of well-groomed slopes, delicious cuisine and the warmth of its Ladin people, so named for the ancient language which they still speak today in addition to Italian, German and English. This evening we'll enjoy an introduction to the wines of the Alto Adige with a wine and cheese tasting in San Cassiano before returning to our hotel for dinner.

After breakfast, meet with your UIAGM/IFMGA ski guide for a trip briefing, rent any equipment and pack your belongings in the duffel bag provided, which will be brought from hut to hut with the belongings you'll need for nights at the rifugios. You’ll ski today on the slopes of Alta Badia and Val Gardena. This region features innumerable slopes including gentle descents and the famed Gran Risa World Cup track.

Day 3: Passo Fedaia and Marmolada Glacier
We ski today towards to the Marmolada, the highest mountain in the Dolomites at 3,342 meters (10, 965 ft.). The area is one of the most scenic of the Dolomites and home to her largest remaining glacier. The ski runs are well-groomed and run down the glacier towards the valley. The highest point of the ski area is also the starting point of one of the most beautiful ski runs of the Alps: La Bellunese. The Marmolada ski area offers wonderful intermediate and high difficulty ski slopes on the glacier, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes. Overnight at a Rifugio.
Day 4: Civetta and Passo Staulanza
Ski to Malga Ciapela at the bottom of the glacier and take a public bus to Alleghe. Spend the day skiing at the Civetta ski resort. Surrounded by plenty of majestic peaks and unobstructed views. The valleys on Monte Civetta are rich in history and tradition and became famous in the 19th century when the first winter guests discovered the imposing beauty and timeless charm of Monte Civetta, and Monte Pelmo (God’s Throne). At the end of the day, the owner of your next rifugio will pick you up and bring you to the mountain inn by van (about 15-minute transfer). Overnight at a Rifugio.
Day 5: Lagazuoi / Cinque Torri Area
A short transfer allows us to ski down to the ski bus to reach Passo Giau then ski all day in the Cinque Torri and Lagazuoi ski areas. In winter, the ski slopes here are always perfect, thanks to the favorable exposure. At the end of your skiing day, take the Lagazuoi cable car from the Falzarego Pass, which arrives at an altitude of 2,800 meters (9,186') in only three minutes! From the top, enjoy the breathtaking panorama from the terrace of the Rifugio Lagazuoi, famous throughout the world for its spectacular views of the Dolomite peaks, and your home for tonight. Overnight at the Rifugio.
Day 6: Armentarola and Alta Badia
With its magical scenery, the Armentarola is one of the most beautiful slopes in the Dolomites, if not the world. It unfolds along the foot of the imposing Fanes mountain, in a fairy-tale valley surrounded by castles of rock and frozen waterfalls, making for a magical descent that goes on forever. The run ends with a horse-drawn lift from where you can do it all again, or move on as you spend your last ski day in the area of Alta Badia, and finally settle back into your hotel to enjoy a last dinner in the Dolomites. Overnight at the hotel.
