I’m the chief cook & bottle washer around here, and this is what I served up tonight.
In Arabba, we stayed in the Hotel Evaldo, and the food was super. Each afternoon there was cake.
I tended to overdue the starters from the buffet. These had themes on different days, such as mushrooms, roast vegetables or seafood.
As you might expect in a restaurant in Italy, the pasta second courses were particularly good.
Thankfully, the mains were not particularly large.
The third trip we made was to the ‘Hidden Valley’, which involved skiing over to Armentarola, and then catching a bus to Paso Falzarego, and then taking the gondola up to Lagazuoi (2,778m).
It’s a long red, with wonderful views, down to the end of the run at the Capanna Alpina. From there you can get the ‘horselift’ for 2 Euros.
It’s quite a way from the road at Armentarola to get back to Arabba, and by the end of the day we were both pretty knackered.
The other great ski trip to do in the Dolomites is the Sellaronda, a 42 km circular route. It takes the best part of a day to complete the tour.
One of the great ski trips you can do from Arabba is the Marmolada. It is best to start off early.
Just over from where you’re standing is the highest point in the Dolomites (3342m).
