Meltdown, The Alps Under Pressure, National Geographic Magazine: Sun Lovers Ski Break In The Dolomites

Woman suns while skiers eat at outside tourist restaurant in snowy mountains.

Skiers eat and sun at a restaurant in the Suiusi ski area of the Dolomites in northern Italy. Tourists ski around the mountains taking a series of lifts that connect miles of skiing, and then they take breaks to relax and enjoy the outdoors on a winter holiday.

The sunny Dolomites are made of a carbonate rock that is pale in color. Although technically in Italy, the locals speak German first, a result of a history that aligns them more with regions to the north.
