New Year in the mountains is a must-do way to celebrate New Year’s Eve. For many, this means ski-ing, but for others it can also mean snow clad views and a blazing fireplace, far from the city crowds, getting away from it all in a cosy mountain cabin.
Celebrating New Year in a cabin in the middle of snow-capped woods is great for groups of close friends, wanting to share a beautiful and exciting experience, but also, thanks to the numerous options available in the Dolomites, for couples looking for a beautiful place for an intimate and very special holiday.
There are 2 ways to spend New Year. At a refuge, reachable on snowshoes or by snowmobile, with dinner followed by a scenic descent on skis. Or in the Cabin, which will be your home for a couple of days, far away from the city clamour and in direct contact with nature.
The mountain cabin has its own special charm as a romantic getaway for couples who love ski-ing, with its long, snow clad pistes, but appeals also to those who are simply looking for long walks.
