On Sunday, March 22nd, in the Civetta ski area, the village of Alleghe will feature an event called Baite Aperte, a great celebration for all foodies and mountain lovers alike. It’s a tour which can be undertaken skiing or snowshoeing. On and off the slopes, on a quest to discover the numerous mountain huts located among the forests of Alleghe and of the secret worlds hidden within these small dwellings.
So, if you are you ready to join a big party, take your ski, snowboard or snowshoes and come with us!
Baite Aperte: enjoy snow and tasty food
You can enjoy the event whether you are a ski, a snowboarder or a snowshoein addicted, but you must love snow and mountain food.
Polenta, mushrooms, salami, BBQ or cheese… not that difficult 🙂 … all right, if you can even smell it, you’re ready to go!
Baite Aperte: the schedule for snowshoes lovers
If you take part by snowshoes, you have to join a tour group that meet up at 9.30 at Piani di Pezzè. The group will leave at 10.00 and after one hour walk, the mountain huts will be welcoming the guests.
Tickets: 20€ per person, including snowshoes rental.
Baite Aperte: the schedule for skiers & snowborders lovers
Skiers and snow surfers are able to join independently, following the slopes and the tasty smell of food along the path, or they can even join an organized ski trip that has to be booked in advance.
Tickets: 15€ per person.
Since the huts are mainly off the slopes and through the beauty of the Dolomites forest, the event is recommended for families with kids over 10 years old or children that can handle an itinerary off the beaten track and in fresh snow.
The day will wrap up with a not-to-be-missed event at the Grande Baita Civetta at 15.30, both for skiers and snowshoers.
Alleghe: how to get there
Alleghe is located in the North East of Italy, in the beautiful area of the Dolomites of Belluno, in the Veneto region, one hour drive from the border with Austria and 80km from Bozen. The city of Lienz is infact 110km far from the village of Baite Aperte and you just need to drive along the SS 51 until you arrive at Alleghe. Instead, if you arrive from the highway A22 (Brenner pass), you’ll drive until Bozen and then follow the road sign for SS241 and 346 crossing Trentino Alto Adige and the beautiful Fassa Valley.
If you come by plane or train, there is a shuttle service from and to Venice and Treviso airports and from and to Venezia Mestre railway station. Bus service only available on Saturday and Sunday. Kids under 12 have free tickets on the bus.
