The most common question I get about the Dolomites isn’t about the place itself—it’s why didn’t we choose a more established destination in the Alps like Chamonix, Zermatt, or Innsbruck? While I try to not be dismissive, within the question lies the answer. The Dolomites are a couple decades behind these other places in terms of marketing buzz and raw numbers of tourists. And that’s the best part.

I’ve been to [Italy’s Dolomite Mountains] twice in recent years, summer and winter, and am increasingly becoming convinced that it is not only one of the world’s best ski destinations (and I’ve skied all over the world), but for Americans also one of the most overlooked. For many reasons it is worth a look. A long look. By Larry Olmsted.
Travel is making a comeback, with a lot more growth on the horizon. As people eager for a change of scenery start to plan their first vacations in a year or two, one of the hottest parts of the travel industry will be my favorite, active travel. By Allison Olmsted

And while so much has changed in the last three years, the appeal of the Dolomites has not waned, especially for outdoor pursuits all year long.

The writer was looking for an alpine adventure. Then, she heard something wild — a “ski safari,” with multi-resort ski days and stays in family-run inns in the Italian Alps.
While hiking in the Italian Alps, I learned about a roving adventure that involved tackling chunks of the Dolomiti Superski (12 ski areas spread across more than 700 miles of slopes on one ski pass) and sleeping at different high-altitude inns, or rifugios, each night. A local company aptly called Dolomite Mountains organized these small-group “ski safaris,” making the moving around (they also transfer duffel bags to each inn) seamless.
