During our family week of skiing nearby we took one day to visit Lagazuoi, we go there early and took the cable car to the Rifugio and then took the time to take it all in. The views were literally outstanding and breathtaking, the air so pristine clear, it was a day we will always remember. Lunch at the Rifugio was so yummy....lots of people but service was fast and good. We then skied down the back of the hill, an easy 7 km run with wonderful views all around.... Tops was the experience of taking the horse drawn cords to take us all to the parking and bus area. Strongly recommend...for non skiers coming up and down the cable car is a great alternative.
