OUTSIDE MAGAZINE - The 33 Best Trips in 2019
Whether you prefer haute or hut cuisine, the Dolomites in Italy’s South Tyrol have the best of both. The region is a culinary melting pot of Italian and Austrian traditions mixed with rustic influences from the local Ladins culture. On weeklong guided or self guided gourmet ski safaris with adventure outfitter Dolomite Mountains, you’ll earn your turns and meals. Owner Agustina Marmot has spent over a decade finding the area’s top restaurants to customize trips for every palate. You’ll ski between remote rifugios (backcountry huts) that serve hearty dishes like venison polenta and offer lodging, and dine in Michelin-starred restaurants like San Cassiano’s St Hubertus. In the summer, the outfitter offers a food crawl, where you’ll hike bike, and climb to reach picnics and restaurants housed in alpine farmhouses. From $2,200 for seven days - J.M.
