LOS ANGELES TIMES – Italy: Eat gourmet meals, ski spectacular slopes in the Dolomites

Good food and good skiing are the draw for a five-day ski trip to Italy's Dolomite Mountains.

The tour starts in Alta Badia, where skiers stay in a hotel before heading out with a guide for two days on a hut-to-hut tour. Skiers visit the Sella Massif, the high point of the Marmolada Glacier (just under 11,000 feet) and the San Pellegrino and Civetta ski resorts before skiing down the Five Towers and arriving in Cortina d'Ampezzo.
