Advice for ski trip to Dolomites (?Alta Badia/San Cassiano)

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are starting to plan a ski trip (mostly downhill, but possibly also some cross country) to the Dolomites in February. We had a delightful trip to the Trois Vallees a few years ago, where we stayed in the lovely town of Saint Martin de Belleville. Things we loved most about that trip: the charming atmosphere of Saint Martin, easy access to the slopes from the lift in the center of town which in turn was easily accessible by foot from our pension, not needing a car (we took the ski bus from Geneva), and the huge ski area where we could ski a different area each day of our trip. We're hoping to replicate much of the feel this time around.

We're looking for a village full of charm that's laid back. We don't need or want an big apres ski scene. We'd like to stay in a cozy chalet for a reasonable price (since we'll pretty much just be conking out there at the end of the day) which is walkable to a lift. We don't need a spa. Good food is really important to us, which is one reason we're looking at San Cassiano for its Michelin starred restaurants, but we also revel in well done and down-to-earth traditional farm-to-table type places. However, I've read that San Cassiano is a bit spread out which makes me somewhat wary (see request for easy assess to lifts above).

Looking for any recommendations for a destination and specific hotel recommendations, please!
