February 2022 and Covid was still a big thing. We were all extremely keen to ski and had planned to go to Romania, but nobody wanted to land in Bucharest at the peak of Omicron.
There was enough snow in the Dolomites, the forecast was good and the deal clincher – the ever-full Garni Raetia had rooms for the week. Kate and Diego are among the finest hosts one could imagine, faultlessly running their family hotel with good natured smiles.
We had a fun time on and off the mountain skiing in a wide variety of conditions. The arguable highlight had nothing to do with skiing as you will see from the photos.
The Raetia was such a good experience that I tried to book for 2023. Unsurprisingly there was no room at the inn.
