The peaks and crags of the Little Dolomites in northern Italy are as much about family lore as they are a challenge to the quads
My husband’s people come from vintage mountain stock. On both sides of the family there were chemists who were also hunters, mountaineers, Alpini. There was a grandmother who was pelted with stones in certain hamlets for daring to ski in trousers; an uncle who was part of the 1954 Italian expedition to K2 and led Jewish refugees and British paratroopers to safety in Switzerland through the mountains during World War II; and still another uncle who was a poet-explorer and prisoner of war in India for six years. Add to this mayors, Olympians and enough ski instructors to float an independent nation.
