The ski areas Arlberg and Kitzbühel in Austria, Chamonix in France, Gstaad in Switzerland and Alta Badia have one important common ground: They all are the favorite ski resorts for the high society, for hedonists, stars and starlets.

Today you will hardly hear the valley’s old German name Hochabtei, because Alta Badia prefers to be Italian and elegant rather than alpine and traditional. And it has the right to do so, because in the last years the villages between Mt. Sella and Fanes – Corvara, Kolfuschg, La Villa, Pedratsches and St.Kassian – have developed into noble ski resorts.

Not for nothing the valley was repeatedly decorated concerning ski holidays. Surrounded by the unique landscape of the picturesque Dolomites the skiing area Alta Badia offers many easy slopes for beginners, families and leisurely skiers. Moreover you can explore the famous ski carousel Sellaronda, visit first class hotels, numerous excellent gourmet restaurants and enjoy sunny winters.

In short: Skiing in Alta Badia is recommendable for especially for beginners, advanced and unhurried skiers, less for extreme sportsmen. The ski runs around Piz La Ila, Piz Sorega and Pralongia are mainly easy and you find many rustic ski huts. For ambitious skiers the world cup slope Gran Risa in La Villa is a must. Another black ski run is the so called Vallon slope on Mt. Piz Boe.
