With the launch of a new ski season in Alta Badia in the Dolomites comes a brand new concept in eating on the hop: Slope Food and the Gourmet Ski Safari. Skiers ski (or skidoo) from refuge to refuge, indulging in tapas-style food produced by six top chefs, each matched to a local wine.
With a total of 17 Michelin-starred restaurants in the South Tyrol, three of which have two stars, the region punches way above its weight in terms of geographical size both for food and wine. As a mountain region, it is bursting at the borders with cured meats, cheeses and excellent wines.
