The 2020 Trophies: A Celebration of Sport and Life. Alta Badia will host a Giant Slalom and a Slalom. This will be the 35th edition of the Ski World Cup in Alta Badia.

 
The trophies given to the top three racers are done by Danielle Basso. She has done the gigantic sculpture at the start of the Gran Risa slope to celebrate 30 years of the event. The trophies “are metaphors – explained Basso – of a history of passion, sport and beauty that is renewed every year in this magical event in the heart of the Dolomites”.

 
The shape of the trophy is the scenery of the Dolomites. The Dolomites is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The World Ski Cup in Alta Badia is a fundamental draw to winter tourism. Alta Badia will host a Giant Slalom and a Slalom. This will be the 35th edition of the Ski World Cup in Alta Badia.

 
Since 1985, the Alpine Ski World Cup has been in the agenda of Alta Badia.
 
“The aim of the two World Cup races this year more than ever is to support winter tourism in the valley. In an upcoming winter season full of uncertainties both on the part of the tourist operators and anyone wanting to book a ski holiday, there must be no shortage of signs of a return to normality, of never giving up and of believing in a good start and continuation of the winter season. All together, united in respect for the Covid regulations, concentrating on the desire for constant performance also for the Gran Risa athletes and aware that the future will return to smile on us, we welcome in the 35th edition of the Ski World Cup in Alta Badia”. These were the words of Andy Varallo, President of the Alpine Ski World Cup Alta Badia Organising Committee, for Alta Badia and for the entire ski world.

Hotel La Perla

 
My favourite hotel in Corvara- and you can see why. First it is a Leading Hotel of the World. It has a great location, ski in/out. It is a house that dates from the 18th century. The owner is a collector of all types of things. You can see different collections exhibited in the hotel. From wall clocks to plates. The décor is very warm. The restaurant has different stübes. This is very typical in the South Tyrol area. Stübes are rooms with wooden panelled walls and ceilings.
 
The hotel offers a spa and wellness centre with indoor and outdoor pools. There is a special room for mountain bikers with different bikes of celebrity bikers. The wine cellar is mind-blowing- go and visit if you can.

Owned by a traditional hotelier family from the area. The Hotel Ciasa Salares (Ciasa means house) is a great place to stay. I did not stay there myself, I would have love to, but went for a five-course dinner. Dinner finished in their chocolate store choosing what we wanted. We even had a hand-made ice-cream dipped in a chocolate fountain… Ultra-delicious!
 
The hotel decor is lovely, invites you to relax and not want to leave. There is a cave where you can have (if lucky) some wine tastings with some yummy nibbles. We’ve finished trying aguardientes by a fire pit outside under a starry night.
 
The hotel has a lovely spa with pool, hot tub, sauna and Turkish bath.

This hotel is a delight, a four stars in the smaller town of Colfosco. Located before the Gardena Pass that takes you into Val Gardena. Perfectly located for skiing towards Alta Badia or Val Gardena. The hotel is beautiful wherever you see it.
 
It has an impressive spa. South Tyrol’s hotels are much better than the media of hotels, and their spas are serious. The mountain landscapes are amazing there. The food is top notch. And the wine is perfect in all the region. So what are you doing that you are not there already?
