Top Ten Italy Off-the-Beaten-Path Adventures

Ski the Alta Badia
By Valerio Diotto

In the upper Badia Valley lies a skiers' paradise: The scenic villages of La Villa, San Cassiano, and Corvara are linked by a vast network of trails and chairlifts that could take days to cover thoroughly. There are trails for every level of skier; one of the best is an intermediate trail, the Lagazuoi. The exhilerating descent will take you from a breathtaking vista at 2,800 meters to the Scotoni refuge, where you can break for snacks or continue on to a a steep section along a canyon, followed by a smooth two kilometers to the Armentarola Hotel in San Cassiano. From there you can catch a bus back up to the top if you've still got the energy.
