Dreamy Dolomites in Winter, and best skiing



No much snow this year but enough to ski, and to appreciate how beautiful my Dolomite Mountains are! Paesaggi da favola! 


And of course the best ski ever! Below the record of my best day on the slopes, from Val di Fassa to Val Gardena.


After 23+ km I deserved a bombardino (probably about 2000 calories!)


More scenic shots:


Look at this frozen waterfall, dreamy!




We stayed at the Hotel Pareda in Canazei, which has a beautiful pool and wellness centre, lovely staff, comfortable rooms, and where every evening we filled our bellies well.








In Val Gardena I even found a restaurant (at the Hotel Valpudra) with lots of Vegan options, like this delicious homemade rye pasta with seitan ragout with marjoran and cress fragrance. I licked the plate clean! 


And the bread was great too! I love the local pan dur, hard crispy bread with fennel seeds.



Bye bye to a lovely week in the mountains, I hope you get more snow!

  7. Certo che queste nostre Dolomiti sono un luogo assolutamente unico e pieno di magia. Ogni estate me ne faccio un pieno che in teoria mi dovrebbe bastare per tutto il resto dell'anno e invece mi basta vedere le tue foto per sentire una fitta d'astinenza!
