Our Directors Sittah Russo and Jude Lamb have been running operations and reservations for Albergo Frohsinn since 2002 when it was opened by newly formed company Mountainsun Ltd by whom they were employed. After 15 years working for Mountainsun, in 2017, Sittah and Jude formed Dolomitesun Ltd with the aim of specialising in quality chalet accommodation for skiing in Dolomiti Superski.
We plan to continue running Albergo Frohsinn to the same catered chalet formula that has made it so incredibly popular with returning guests.
Sittah originates from Berlin and while studying architecture in London, worked at a ski shop where she met Robert Jaffe the founder of Mountainsun Ltd, and Jude. She spent 2 enjoyable seasons as a chalet host in Les Coches and became Manager of Albergo Frohsinn when it was first acquired by Mountainsun in 2002. She has since married Ewald a local man, and they live in the region with their son Tibo. Sittah is fluent in at least 5 languages and enjoys both skiing and boarding. She was Manager at Albergo Frohsinn until April 2010 and then became Area Manager for Mountainsun. In winter 2017-18 Sittah returned to a hands-on role as Manager of Albergo Frohsinn and is looking forward to another winter.
Jude takes reservations and looks after bookings. She has over 25 years experience working in the ski industry and spent 15 years with Mountainsun, prior to which she managed a ski retail and rental businesses in central London for Robert Jaffe, and worked in management in the hospitality industry. In winter 2017-18 she was based at the chalet for the first time and fulfilled a long-held dream to spend a season in the resort. In summer she looks after reservations from the UK and will return to the chalet for the winter, managing bookings from the resort as well as helping the chalet team. She looks forward to welcoming home our many returning friends and greeting our new guests.
