From Marcialonga to the top of Sass Pordoi and the slopes: After the first event on January 27, other events will take place in March, with music, sunsets and thermal relax.
You say fresh air, we say Happy Cheese. In 2018, even more than in the previous years, the tasty happy hours with regional wines, local cheese and finger food mainly made with Puzzone di Moena Dop and Cher de Fascia are offered to skiers and mountain lovers.
This year the preview of the events coincides with the Marcialonga di Fiemme e Fassa, the beloved ski cross-country competition, unmissable for Nordic ski lovers. The 45th edition of the competition will start in Moena on January 28, and the day before, on January 27, at 5.00 pm, Moena – Piaz de Ramon- will host the first Happy Cheese event of the season.
The next dates of the Happy Cheese will be in March, fading into the shades of the latest sunrays shining above the Dolomites for #tastethesunset: on March 1 (from 4.30 pm on, only upon reservation) enjoy the sunset from the Terrace of the Dolomites (2950 m) at Rifugio Maria at Sass Pordoi. On March 10, be ready to admire the sunset from Ciampedie (2000 m) and taste creations with local cheese at Baita Checco (from 4.30 pm, only upon reservation, only for pedestrians). Other unmissable event will take place on March 17 at San Pellegrino with tastings at Baita Paradiso (from 4.30 pm; upon reservation, only for pedestrians). And if the natural showcase will not be enough to amaze you, each event will host also a music band with live music.
