A message from Katie after our 2024 trip: “Last January, this incredible group of women met at Heathrow airport in the early hours for an adventure.  Some had come alone, some in small groups but they all had two things in common: their passion for skiing and their connection to @comedowntothewoods and @mizzknits on Instagram.  The result was more than we could have ever hoped for.  From the second we got on the plane the buzz was palpable and it didn’t stop.  Laughter til our cheeks hurt, skiing til our thighs hurt and an avalanche of support, love, friendship, solidarity and gratitude.  This is the second year running we have hosted our group ski trip to the beautiful Italian Dolomites with Skiworld and Alta Badia, who welcomed us back with open arms.  Perfect blue skies, a huge snowfall the night before we arrived and mountain food and drinks that we’re all still dreaming of now.  It’s hard to explain unless you were there, but a little bit of magic happened last weekend, the people were the perfect ingredients, the place was the perfect mixing pot and now we’re all under the Alta Badia spell”.

Following the sell-out success of the first two editions of ‘Skiing with Katie & Mizz in Alta Badia’, our brilliant ski weekend is back, with Katie and Mizz set to host another three days and nights of fun on the slopes of Alta Badia, high in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Dolomite mountains.  

Taking place this season 12-15 January 2025, Katie (@comedowntothewoods) and best friend Mizz (@mizzknits) will host a weekend full of great skiing, delicious food and brilliant Alta Badia experiences… most importantly, all enjoyed alongside a fabulous group.  Whether you want to come alone, with a friend, or with a group, you will instantly make new friends, and this will be a weekend break to remember, full of fabulous laughter and fun, all set in the jaw-dropping setting of Alta Badia.

During our three-night break, we’ll enjoy skiing some of the world’s prettiest runs, including the world-famous Sellaronda circuit and the stunning Lagazuoi ski tour, often said to be one of the most beautiful in the world, ending with a magical horse-drawn lift. 

There’ll be foodie treats aplenty, with lunches at some of Alta Badia’s best gourmet mountain huts, famed for their collaborations with Michelin-starred chefs, and dinners celebrating the best of Italian cuisine. We’ll once again stay at Ciasa Salares, a luxury hotel in the heart of Alta Badia, offering direct access to the slopes, as well as indulgent rooms, a beautiful spa and delicious restaurants.
