Luxury Chalets Alta Badia

Diverse skiing and superb snow against the backdrop of the stunning Dolomites. 

As early as 1947 the first chairlift was built in Alta Badia. Skiing is a matter of tradition in this beautiful resort, comprised of the villages of Corvara, Colfosco, La Villa, San Cassiano, Badia and La Val. Franz Kostner, the famous mountain guide, saw the valley’s potential and founded winter tourism here at the end of the 19th century. Linked to the Sella Ronda, one of the most famous ski tours in the Dolomites, the ski area is seemingly endless, providing the perfect escape for any winter sports lover.  

With over 130 km of perfectly groomed piste, Alta Badia is optimally cross-linked with 53 lifts preventing queues and crowding on the slopes. Rich in confidence-boosting runs, this resort enables visitors to explore new terrain every day. The diehard skiers that wait to catch the last lift will be able to witness the breathtaking sunsets that see the cliffs of the Dolomites turn an extraordinary shade of pink; these incredible demonstrations of beauty have been internationally credited, the Dolomites being made a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2009.

Witness some of the best skiing in the world while enjoying the ultimate indulgent retreat.

Nestled in the small village of San Cassiano, sits the history-rich five-star Rosa Alpina hotel as well as two world class restaurants, including the two Michelin-star, St Hubertus. The indulgence in this little village is seemingly endless; spa experiences for ultimate relaxation, exquisite food and a collection of designer boutique shops too. The innate Italian feel here provides a naturally warm ambience that is perfect for families, but equally the après scene brings a vibrant liveliness to the atmosphere too.

December sees Alta Badia flooded with ski enthusiasts as the Men’s Ski World Cup giant slalom takes place on the Gran Risa slope - a busy time for luxury chalet and hotel bookings. The Sellaronda Skimarathon is another fantastic event that also draws huge crowds as teams ski around the Sella Massif and then make the trek up the mountain itself. Away from the racing is the Ski Carousel Vintage Party in April; Alta Badia takes on the look and feel of the ski area from decades past so guests can enjoy a fascinating vintage atmosphere.
