For those interested in heading to “the” place for après ski, Moritzino is it (think Aspen’s Cloud 9). Open for over 50 years, this restaurant, wine bar and rowdy après-ski spot are quite the scene during the winter months. Serving up some of the best local cuisine and wine, Moritzino is a wonderful stop for both food and wine lovers. Chef Marco Spinelli is known for his meat, seafood and delicious pasta dishes, featuring seasonal produce from the surrounding area. Outside the hut is a true Neapolitan pizza oven serving up thin pies to travelers less inclined to sit for a long meal. The wine bar also offers a slightly cozier ambience and the sommelier can guide guests through a highly refined collection of wines.

Every afternoon at 2pm, DJ Luca Noale starts blasting tunes on the restaurant’s terrace that can be heard over the mountaintops. If you thought skiing was the highlight of the day, think again. Here, friends, strangers and locals can be seen dancing on tables, partying and enjoying the music.

Interiors at Pomedes, Dolomites, Italy


Set at the top of the World Cup ski run, this restaurant's spacious terrace has panoramic vistas. Be advised that the black-diamond run is the only way to ski back down, so if you plan to schuss home, make sure you are advanced. An appealing alternative is to leave the equipment at your lodging and take a cable car up and laze in the sun.

Pre de Costa

Located in an old barn from the 1950s, Pre de Costa is surrounded by the forests of Armetarola en route to the Falzarego Pass. Popular for hikers coming from San Cassiano, the restaurant can be reached by a moderate hiking path (1km) and offers beautiful views of the surrounding valley, nearby meadows and forest from the outdoor terrace. The restaurant serves typical Ladin dishes from old family recipes using local ingredients. Pre de Costa is also easily reachable in winter for those who enjoy cross-country skiing; however, we like it best in the summer months.
