One glance at the trail map reveals that the ski lodges here are well distributed across the entire ski area. If you’re in the mood for a break, you don’t have to go far to find a cosy spot to do so. The new link between Helm and Rotwand has also paved the way for a new culinary option: The PUNKA Service Center now also includes cafeteria and a restaurant with a pizzeria for hungry skiers and snowboarders.
The valley station in Vierschach with its coffee bar is our tip for a short break between runs. With stunning views over the Dolomites, the Helm Restaurant at the mountain station of the gondola is well worth a visit. It offers both à la carte and self-service food, with a wide range of dishes.
If you prefer something slightly more traditional, head over to Henn Stoll. It’s located on the Signaue and serves delicious regional dishes in its cosy interior. Its inviting sundeck is also the perfect place to sit back, relax and watch the skiers go by.
The Helmhanghütte serves regional cuisine as well as home-made cakes for those with a sweet tooth, and the Lärchenhütte is a similar story. Both of these lodges are located alongside the valley run down to Sexten.
The Sexten Dolomites are a culinary treat, and not just by virtue of the wide variety of dishes served on the mountain. It all tastes pretty good too! As the slopes extend all the way into Val Comelio and Veneto, skiers can enjoy food with a distinctly Alpine flavour as well as more typically Italian fare. That’s why we didn’t hesitate in giving the ski area nine points out of ten in this category.
