Skiing ‘Italian Style’ in the Dolomites

Italians bring their own unique relaxed style to skiing. Instead of a cappuccino after your third run, you have a spritz with a snowball instead of ice. A good lunch with wine is considered essential, and a couple of grappas are required before you ski the home slope at the end of the afternoon…
