Après-ski in Val di Fassa

Après-ski in Val di Fassa

Every resort in the valley has its own style of après-ski fun and games, Nigh-hawks here can start in the mountain huts on the slopes at happy hour, move down to Alba for a few drinks, then head for Canazei or Campitello for a meal and a few more drinks, ending in Vigo or Moena to dance away what’s left of the night. After a few days, groups have pre-set and lively routes around their favourite places, choosing between disco bars, pubs, traditional local bars and restaurants or the late-might clubs. Canazei has the best choice of the liveliest venues, with nine bars and clubs, many with live music, with the Hexen Klub’s ‘Lounge Dinner Klub Show Disco’ one of the most popular.

Campitello holds its own with five après-ski haunts, including two pubs and the cross-culturally named Evita Pub American Bar, with four venues at Pozza di Fassa and three at Vigo di Fassa. Moena has four buzzing venues, plus the hotel bars and discos open to non-residents. One very special treat for foodies in the valley is the traditional Ladin cuisine served in many of the eateries on the mountain and in the villages. Accompanied by the local Trentino wines, these simple, easy-to-prepare dishes, made from the freshest local produce, mountain meats and herbs, are  peasant food at its best, steeped in the local agricultural heritage.
