Description

The Dolomites are probably the most famous mountains of the Italian Alps. This 5-day expedition is your chance to explore this fabulous area on splitboard: join me!

Stretching from the River Adige to the Piave Valley, the Dolomite Mountains are part of the Southern Limestone Alps. These world-famous peaks are located in northeastern Italy, in the provinces of Belluno, South Tyrol and Trentino.

This 5-day splitboarding adventure will take us from the Pala Group (Pale of San Martino) all the way to Lake Braies (also known as Pragser Wildsee and Lake Prags). We will enjoy awesome descents on the Marmolada, the Sella Group, and the Fanes/Sennes Group.

Using the Superski Dolomiti lifts only when we need to, we will climb up to 700 meters per day. Then, after splitboarding all day long on top quality snow, we will stay in charming mountain huts and eat delicious Italian food!

The classic starting point of this expedition is San Martino di Castrozza,  in the most southern part of the Dolomites. However, I am very flexible and we can start from other places too. You can check the complete itinerary below!

Keep in mind that this trip is suitable for at least intermediate splitboarders with some mountaineering experience and a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there along the way to help and guide you!

So, if you are up for this amazing splitboarding experience in the Dolomites, please contact me. I am sure that this 5-day alpine expedition will be unique!

I also offer this same trip for skiers. Check it out here.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.
