Beautiful long days with sunshine galore and perfect snow – especially during the early hours of the day – offer skiing enthusiasts unforgettable days skiing on the slopes of Alta Badia until 2nd April.

Alta Badia has chosen to mark the end of the 2016/2017 winter season by organising a big party, a new unique retro-style celebration. On Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd April, Alta Badia will recreate, both in the valley and on the ski slopes, the atmosphere of a skiing district of times gone by.

On Saturday night, various themed events will take place in the clubs in the valleys. Each bar and participating restaurant will select a vintage period of their choice and convey the atmosphere which reflects that specific period both in the music and décor.  The old-fashioned skiing vibe will also be available at 2000m in the refuges, which will offer local traditional cuisine on their menus.

On Sunday, skiers can take part in a vintage skiing competition with bamboo poles on the La Para slope, where one of the last J-bar lifts is still operational. Everyone can take part in the competition, but only old skis are permitted, not carving skis. You sign up for the race on the day of the event. Awards will be handed out at after-skiing retreat L’Murin, where a “Style contest” will also take place to celebrate the most original vintage clothing.

All participants will be asked to wear retro skiing clothing and use retro skiing equipment for the entire weekend with the aim of creating a “vintage” environment in the entire skiing complex.

This event is a collaboration between the Alta Badia Tourism Board and the Skicarosello Consortium.
