If the mantra of an active winter has won you over, this does not mean doing without long moments of relaxation outdoors. You will find a typical Ladin welcome in the mountain huts and refuges, which are accessible by ski lift, on foot with snowshoes or on skis. You can rest and relax, sip a hot drink and think of nothing but how majestic the Dolomites are from the sunny terraces.
