This winter, Fredik and John set out on a freeride skiing journey in the Dolomites. This father and son were guided by Enrico, an IFMGA-certified guide with an in depth knowledge of this stunning mountain range in northeastern Italy.
“Enrico treated us to a fantastic and thrilling day exploring the wonders of the Dolomites; his knowledge and tips made for an unforgettable day”.
Declared a UNESCO world-heritage site in 2009, this section of the Italian Alps with peaks over 3,000 meters is an immense playground for outdoor lovers seeking mountain adventures all-year-round.
During winter, the limestone massifs of the Dolomites provide a first-class off-piste skiing experience, with deep slopes and great snow conditions. All this, surrounded by an awe-inspiring scenery.
The Dolomites boast an impressive network of 12 ski areas known as Dolomite Superski, with lifts connecting different villages and offering endless snow activities for every taste.
Fredik and John’s freeriding trip followed an itinerary in Arabba and Marmolada ski resorts.
Arabba has superb high-quality snow, with ski runs for all levels ―the best of them lie on its north face―. Marmolada (3,343 m) is the highest peak of the entire mountain range and has the only glacier in the Dolomites. Marmolada Glacier is a big highlight for skiers, who can enjoy a steep descent from the top to its base, like this father and son did.
“Enrico took us for a fantastic tour with plenty of tips and masses of local knowledge to help us make the most of our day out. Definitely recommended”
