The Dolomites, a World UNESCO Heritage Site, consists of 3 distinct regions - South Tyrol, Trentino and Veneto –each displaying unique differences. The one thing they do share in common, however, is the fierce protection of their tradition and chequered history. Today, the outcome is that of proud, unified inhabitants who want to share this past with their visitors. This is nowhere more evident than in the charming village of San Cassiano in the Alta Badia area of the South Tyrol region where 3 languages are spoken in an area consisting of no more than 30 houses;Italian, Austrian and Ladin. It is a truly unique resort and one with the warmest of welcomes. Part of the Dolomiti SuperSki area which entitles the holder of just the one required lift pass access to 12 ski areas, 1,200km of piste, up to 3,000m altitude and over 250 million years of history, San Cassiano is a fantastic family resort. Not only is the skiing extensive and plentiful but the food and scenery is simply magnificent. And it is part of the Italy's world famous Sella Ronda circuit so you really do have the best of the skiing available in Italy on your doorstep!

TIME ZONE
GMT + 1 hour

LANGUAGE
Italian and German are spoken in Northern Italy. Italian and German are widely spoken in all resorts in the Dolomites. In some areas you will even hear the traditional mother tongue, Ladin which has survived the test of time. Menus and information are generally translated into English as well.

CURRENCY INFORMATION
The official currency is the Euro (€). Coins are available in 1 cent, 2 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, 50, cent, €1 & €2 denominations. Notes are available in €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200, €500 denominations.

MONEY MATTERS
Travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange or purchase in major cities, but in more rural areas, visit a bank to exchange them for Euros. Major credit cards are widely accepted here and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in the country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE FORMALITIES
Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have: a signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points. Visas are required for certain nationalities and you are strongly advised to check your status allowing plenty of time for visa application. EU nationals are only required to hold a valid national ID card.

WEATHER
Switzerland's winter temperature range is -2 °C (28 °F) to 7 °C (45 °F), with the snow remaining in the Alps until around April. The alpine climate is cold and visitors should wear warm, waterproof clothing at all times when outdoors during the winter. Hats and gloves are also essential to prevent frostbite. Sunglasses or ski goggles are also necessary to reduce the glare of the sun on the snow.

HEALTH
It is advisable to contact your doctor before you travel if you have any specific health concerns and imperative to take out appropriate travel and medical insurance. Winter sports involve a high degree of risk and you should be in good health and carry adequate medical insurance in case of winter sports accident, including cover for air ambulance.
