Ski and more on the Dolomites
Dolomites are a popular destination also among non-skiers; just think of the beauty of the snowy peaks, of the woods and the icy lakes; think of the huts and all the activities that can make your vacation an amazing experience. A ski holiday on the Dolomites is an opportunity to live the mountain in a different and yet very interesting vacation. You can choose among different activities like walks on the snow-shoes, rides on the snowmobile, or a sledge – dog tour. You can also visit some villages that have made the history of the Dolomites area, typical treasures of the mountain landscapes. Among them: Cortina d’Ampezzo, Brunico, San Candido, Lienz, Alleghe and the Val di Fassa, just to mention a few. At night, you can choose among venues where you can dance, eat typical dishes, or reach the huts on snowcats. The package arranged by the Dolomiti Scuola Sci in Cortina d’Ampezzo also suits non-skiers and people not willing to learning ski, as they can spend a fully tailor-made snow holiday, made to live the mountain in winter away from the slopes.
A walk on the Dolomites
If you are a non-skier, you can’t miss a walk on snow-shoes, fixed on the trekking shoes to walk safely on the snow. The beauty of these mountains will be right in front of you, and you will enjoy them, together with other people in the valleys or at high altitude, enjoying the pure white of the breath-taking landscapes. If you are not afraid of speed, you can opt for sledge run downhill, taking advantage of the many slopes on the itinerary, or you can choose to stay with the snow-shoes that don’t require any training.
Visiting Cortina d’Ampezzo and San Candido
If you don’t love skiing and you’re not interested to learn it, but you are still willing to spend a week on the snowy Dolomites, Cortina d’Ampezzo waits for you. You will discover its typical wooden houses, the bars full of tourists tasting a hot chocolate, a grappa or the vin brulé, the typical pastry, making some good shopping in the glamourous stores of this town, where VIPs and show-business stars spend their winter holidays. San Candido is in the Val Pusteria, along the Drava river. It’s renowned for its small alleys and buildings, a typical mountain village, where the Collegiata was erected in the XII century.
