The highest ski rifugio on the Inspired ITALY Dolomites Ski Safari

Posted in the Dolomites Ski Safaris collection on 4th August 2018


tar gazing at Rifugio Lagazuoi sets new standards. Views from the terrace are jaw-dropping. The skiing? Well, probably two of the very best ski slopes in the Dolomites and Europe.


Rifugio Lagazuoi 2,752m / 9,028ft ASL

The Lagazuoi Rifugio sits just above the cable car station. Its a short walk - 50m - up a metal stair way. Take your time, because it does take your breath!

Built in the 60's by Guido's father, Lagazuoi offers a more traditional style of rifugio accommodation. The private bedrooms used by Inspired ITALY Dolomites Ski Safari, are all located on the first floor, some with a balcony. The rooms sleep up to 18 guests. All are furnished with traditional wood furniture and single Tyrollean style beds. There are bathrooms on the first floor while the shared shower facilities are on the ground floor.

The Rifugio offers a ski-boot dryer, slippers, bed sheets and towels.
