In the Dolomites, the best areas to practice the off-piste/freeride and steep skiing jointing the lift all around are Marmolada, Sella Group, Arabba, and Cortina. All of these ski resorts offer many different kinds of activities; depending on the skill level, it is possible to find the best option.

What I am proposing to you today is a full-day off-piste skiing program in the Dolomites. This adventure includes great off-piste itineraries around Arabba, Marmolada Glacier, and Sella Group. And what’s more, once in Marmolada, you will enjoy a steep fall from the top of the glacier to its base at 1.490 meters of altitude.

If I had to sum up the main reasons why I want to invite you there I’d list the following ones:

  • Marmolada is a great place for starting off-piste skiing. This is a perfect spot for those who want to approach off-piste skiing from normal ski pistes. Also, there are really nice viewpoints to admire the Marmolada Glacier.
  • The Sella Group offers a unique area to discover many different couloirs with steep skiing, and mountaineering activities in combination with crampons and ice axes, which are easy to intermediate ski tours with amazing views surrounded by towers and peaks. Generally, it is better to have skin equipment to move easily everywhere. 
  • Arabba is another area with amazing opportunities, especially with off-piste slopes in the middle of trees and forests. It is always nice keeping really good snow conditions.
  • Another plus point to keep in mind is that Arabba has the best ski runs on its north face so free-riders can enjoy the highest quality snow in the area. 
  • Cortina is famous for sure since it is one of the main villages of the Dolomites. The off-piste skiing opportunity is great.
  • All these places offer off-piste skiing options for everyone. From easy tracks for beginners to serious runs for advanced skiers, steep skiing, rappelling on couloir, and mountaineering experience.
  • However, although the area receives all levels of guests, this program specifically requires minimal experience at red pistes (intermediate level).

Nevertheless, you don’t have to worry! I am here to guide you and put all my background at your service. I have climbed most of the mountains surrounding us here, so I commit to you to take the best from this experience.

Please feel free to contact me if you want to live a great off-piste adventure in the Dolomites. I will be waiting for your message.

Mountain Guide

I started my career as an aerospace engineer, my first passion and then became a full-time IFMGA mountain guide, my second passion, since 2013. Working as a mountain guide gratifies me a lot. I enjoy very much transmitting my knowledge about the mountains and its activities to my friends and clients.

I’m based in the Dolomites where I have climbed most of the mountain surroundings us here, including “Via attraverso il Pesce” in Marmolada and “Captain sky-hook” in Civetta. I also enjoy a lot guiding in the rest of the Alps, ice climbing, ski touring, freeride skiing, rock climbing and mountaineering.

Feel free to contact me if you want to live a great adventure in the Dolomites or anywhere else in the Alps, during the winter or the summer. It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you and allow you to reach your goal. I work with other mountain guides in the Veneto area, such as Filippo, Massimo, and my brother Daniele. If I am unavailable on the date you are interested in coming climbing, skiing, or engaging in other activities with me, I can connect you with one of them.

What people are saying about this trip



3 stars Marmolada is due to weatherconditions. Lack of new snow. Enrico found good snow in parts of the glacier. 5 stars to him. Before we went up to the glacier, Enrico took us for a testride offpiste to see if we would be able to ski difficult conditions. Very good.



To be honest we are very disappointed. We signed up for the day of free ride on Marmolada but Enrico wisely said the snow conditions were not conducive for doing that. He offered to do other activities (specifically ski touring) but that is not what we paid for or signed up for, and did not want to do that. Since he offered “alternative activities” it appears we lose 100% of the cost per Explore-Share policy. This is extremely unfair. Enrico seemed like a good guy and probably a very good guide, but I would NOT recommend Explore Share to anyone! Terrible experience for an expensive day.



Enrico was extremely knowledgeable of the area and was able to put us in great snow despite the lack of snowfall over the past few weeks. Wonderful day!



Enrico treated us to a fantastic and thrilling day exploring the wonders of the Dolomites - his knowledge and tips made for an unforgettable day
