Exciting journey climbing the beautiful ice falls in Colfosco, a small village in the Dolomites, together with an Italian IFMGA mountain guide.

Alps

+1 Day

Jan - Mar, Dec


Description

Colfosco is a small village at the heart of the Dolomites, in Northern Italy. It belongs to the municipality of Corvara and it’s located at the foot of the Sella Group and Mount Sassongher.  

Although this place receives tourists the whole year, it’s specially popular among winter sports enthusiasts. As a matter of fact, it is really close to Dolomiti Superski area, the largest ski circuit in Europe.

In addition to this, the surroundings of Colfosco are also known as a great place to practice ice climbing. Actually, there are three lines of beautiful ice falls. Each of this circuits has different levels of difficulty, from medium to hard.

Because of that, this trip is oriented to climbers with previous experience. During a day of multi pitch ice climbing we will reach a maximum altitude of 200 m.

It’s worth pointing out that you will need technical equipment, like harness, helmet, crampons and ice axes. But don’t worry, you will have the chance to rent everything. 

If you want to improve your ice climbing skills in a beautiful environment, please contact me. I’m an Italian IFMGA mountain guide living in the Dolomites, and I will be happy to show you some of my favorite places in Colfosco.

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.

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.

Geremia was great to have for my first time ice climbing. He went over all the basics and gave me tips on my climbing that really helped out. All of this in a beautiful location! Highly recommended!

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!
