Apres Ski in Alta Badia

Apres Ski in the Alta Badia ski resorts of Corvara, Colfosco, La Villa, San Cassiano, Armentarola and Badia often means fine dining in Michelin starred restaurants amid beautiful scenery. But there are also nice bars, pizzerias and other simple restaurants too, as well as wonderful winter walks.

Bars & Nightlife

Alta Badia is too classy and family-friendly for anything too raucous, but there are places where the young and young at heart gather to have fun.

Up the mountain, the Club Moritzino on Piz La Ila above La Villa starts turning up the music from lunchtime onwards. It stays open till after the lifts have closed. You can ski down to La Villa (preferably not on the seriously steep black run) then take a bus to the other villages.

Edelweiss above Colfosco has a similar but more chilled out vibe.

Down in the resorts, L’Murin in Corvara is a popular apres ski hangout, despite being part of luxury hotel.


Famous Michelin-starred restaurants include St Hubertus in the Rosa Alpina Hotel in San Cassiano and la Stau de Michil at La Perla hotel in Corvara and La Siriola in Armentarola (San Cassiano).  But there are good eating options below this level throughout Alta Badia – even the pizzerias tend to be much higher quality than what you would find in other ski resorts.

And hotel restaurants don’t need to have Michelin stars to offer fine dining. The 4-star Panoramic Sporthotel Panorama near the Arlara lift at the top of Corvara has outstanding gourmet cuisine.

Other Activities

Winterwalking is deservedly popular given the scenery.

Corvara has indoor tennis courts, a climbing wall, and an ice rink.

San Cassiano has a great toboggan run which comes down into the village from Piz Sorrega.

Visiting the Church at Santa Croce above the ski area (see main photo at the top of the page) is well worth the 5 to 10 minute walk. Also recommended is the 1st World war museum at Lagazuoi.
