We spent the morning boarding before rondavuing with the ski club for a mountain lunch. the lunch was held at approx 7,400 feet up the mountain and a quaint little restaurant. After we ate and drank a bit we decided to embark higher up the mountain to take some pics. We only managed to get to approx 8,500 feet up as the lift to the highest point (approx 10,000 feet) was closed due to high winds. We spent a while up there in the cold, windy conditions taking pictures and looking down on the town as well as observing the most famous of the Dolomite peaks. On our way back into town we stopped by the Cortina ice rink in hopes to score some hockey tickets for Saturday nights game, but the Cortina team was eliminated the night before. Nonetheless we went inside and snapped some pictures and watched kids skate for a little bit. Then we just strolled through the town killing time and did some shopping before our next four course dinner..yum!
