More Info

Running across the entirety of northern Italy, the Alps and their subranges offer plenty of backcountry skiing opportunities. From hut-to-hut treks across the Dolomites to single day adventures on the Monte Rosa massif, there is something for everyone in this iconic Mediterranean country.

Heading to places such as the northern Dolomites, Courmayeur or Monte Rosa also make for great jumping off points to iconic parts of Austria, France and Switzerland. Tyrol, Mont Blanc and Zermatt are also easily reached from northern Italy, adding another dimension to your backcountry skiing adventure.

However, staying in Italy offers plentiful fun and excitement. Prior to or after your backcountry skiing adventure explore some of the local culture. Turin, Venice and Milan are all near certain spots in the Alps and offer some spectacular sightseeing of their own.

 

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

During the winter months, the north of Italy is generally quite cold with mean daily temperatures of -7ºC. Temperatures increase a bit in the spring, but not by much. While the area receives plenty of snowfall, there are also many clear days; ideal conditions for ski touring.

How to get there:

This depends on where you’re headed. For the Aosta Valley and Piedmont, flights into the Geneva International Airport (GVA) or the international airport in Turin (TRN) get you there most quickly. If you’re headed to the Dolomites, then flying into the Venice airport (VCE). From each of these, the most popular starting points can be reached by bus, train or airport shuttle.

The tour to the Pisgana glacier was great, even though the snow conditions were icy & challenging. We’d definitely recommend Renzo, the guide, and the Explore Share website. The costs were v.competitive and an incentive to book. The only drawback was the website made it difficult to swop some details like email addresses (e.g. for sending photos). Anyway, we intend using the service & guide again next time we’re in Passo Tonale!

Etienne was our guide for 3 nights 4 days - he provided a fantastic few days which had bit everything, skinning, climbing, great powder, amazing views away from other groups. Etienne is very experienced and considered for his young age and I had total faith in his decisions and ideas. He created a safe but adventurous trip and catered for everyones needs. Also a great guy to spend time with in huts very easy going - but watch out he is a demon card player! Really enjoyed it, fully recommend him and would use him again.
