Description

The Dolomites are an amazing mountain range in Northeastern Italy. It is my hope this 6-day ski touring adventure will give you the best experience you can have within them.

The Alps are so enormous that it is almost impossible to explore, let alone ski, through them all. However, on this trip you will have the chance to explore a truly gorgeous section of them, the Dolomites.

This trip will cover a great deal. Every day will be full of new sights, experiences and lots of exciting skiing! Some of the highlights of this adventure will include the Forcella Grande, Arabba, and the legendary Val Mezdi. You will also get to explore the Sella massif, the Sassolungo massif and the Fedaia Dam. Finally, in the final days of the trip, you will get to ski on the highest peak in the Dolomites, the Marmolada (3,343m). This amazing mountain is a sight to behold, and the skiing on its north face is incredible.

While this trip is not just for experts, you do have to be physically fit. You also require a solid off-piste skiing level. Also, some mountaineering experience is necessary because some sections of the ascent may require the use of crampons, an ice axe, and being roped up.

The Dolomites are a wonderful mountain range for ski touring, off piste skiing and mountaineering. And on this 6 day trip, you will have the chance to see, experience and explore a great deal of it. You will also have the chance to have a lot of fun, while admiring some truly gorgeous snowy peaks. Send me a message if you are interested.

If you want to enjoy another ski touring adventure in Italy, I also offer a 5-day trip on Mount Etna in Sicily.
