The Italian ski resorts of Val di Fiemme, Val di Fassa and San Martino di Castrozza in the Trentino Dolomites will celebrate all things cheese through March.
The region’s HappyCheese festival takes place from 4 – 26 March 2022.
Cheese lovers can enjoy aperitifs and local delicacies right in the heart of the Dolomites on one of the scenic mountain terraces or in a mountain hut.
Much of the ‘HappyCheese’ event coincides with the annual Dolomiti Ski Jazz Music Festival held from 5 – 13 March in the Val di Fassa and Val di Fiemme ski valleys so life jazz music accompanies cheese consumption and snow-sports for the perfect combination on the slopes.
The cheeses can be sampled alongside a glass of sparkling Trentodoc which is famous in the region, or some local craft beer, straight off the slopes. Just be wary of the strict new Italian laws on alcohol consumption on the slopes which are now similar to drink-driving rules.
