We are so excited to have partnered with our friends in Alta Badia to offer a luxury gourmet ski weekend for one winner and up to three friends, worth over £2000, as well as a Sophie Allport Weekend Bag of the winners choice and a £100 Sophie Allport voucher.
The trip will include a three-night stay at the beautiful Hotel Antines on a half board basis for four people, a two-day ski pass each, and tickets to the opening all day gourmet event, the Gourmet Skisafari, which includes Michelin starred chef dishes to enjoy in three different mountain huts, each served with a matching glass of wine.
In a year when we have missed the company of our friends, this is the ideal opportunity to have a catch up in style, enjoying the fresh mountain air of Alta Badia and the beauty of the Italian Dolomites, although if Coronavirus prevents travel this December, the prize will be deferred to December 2021. Famed as Europe’s top gourmet skiing destination, Alta Badia is known for its annual ‘a taste for skiing’ offering, which sees Michelin starred chefs team up with mountain huts to design signature dishes, served all season long.
Each year, the new season’s ‘a taste for skiing’ dishes are launched with a one-day event, ‘Gourmet Skisafari’, which sees some of the partner Michelin starred chefs cook their signature dish in person at their partner mountain hut. Taking place this season on Saturday 12 December 2020, a ‘Gourmet Skisafari’ ticket entitles the holder to a delicious dish in three slopeside mountain huts, each served with a matched glass of wine. The perfect day within a ski weekend with friends, enjoy skiing from hut to hut, stopping off for delicious dishes, served by the chefs themselves and enjoyed with some of the region’s very best wines! With our fabulous prize, the slopes are again yours to enjoy on your second day, with cruisey blues, more challenging reds and blacks, or even opt to ski the Sellaronda – one of the world’s top one-day ski circuits, offering spectacular views at every turn.
You’ll stay at Hotel Antines, a luxury boutique hotel located in the heart of the small town of La Villa. Offering 25 beautiful bedrooms, Hotel Antines is just a few metres from the nearest ski lift and the ski school, ensuring guests can be out on the slopes in minutes, and making it a popular choice for groups of friends, couples or families.
Home to an excellent restaurant, there’s also a beautiful spa, complete with indoor pool, Jacuzzi, two saunas, Turkish and aromatic baths, a fitness room and four cabins for massages and beauty treatments – perfect for easing tired muscles after a day on the slopes!
Our prize includes a three-night stay at this excellent hotel for our winner plus three friends on a half board basis (including dinner and breakfast each day), sharing two rooms, as well as two-day Alta Badia ski passes for all and Gourmet Skisafari tickets.
Our winner and friends will just need to get themselves to Alta Badia, with a choice of low cost flights from the UK into either Innsbruck or Venice, and easy car hire available, plus take their own skis or hire them once they’ve arrived. Gourmet Skisafari takes place this season on Saturday 12 December 2020, so winners are advised to travel Friday 11 December, to enjoy skiing on Saturday and Sunday, before travelling home on Monday, and if Coronavirus prevents travel this December, the prize will be deferred to December 2021.
You'll also win a Sophie Allport Weekend Bag of your choice and a £100 Sophie Allport voucher! Perhaps opt for a new passport holder, luggage tag and washbag to take with you on your luxury weekend away?
