Description

I invite you to join me for one of the most beautiful and legendary ski tours in the Alps: the Haute Route of the Dolomites.  I guarantee we will enjoy an unforgettable 6-day ski touring trip combined with the best off-piste skiing!

My plan is to start from the Pale di San Martino range and finish in the north east of the Dolomites, around Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

We will meet in Falcade, a tiny village in the Tre Valli ski resort. After equipment check and a trip brefing. the adventure will begin! You can check the day-by-day itinerary below this text.

The idea is to go on a hut to hut tour which requires a little effort, but you’ll be rewarded with long runs down remote valleys. And all of this, dominated by the towering limestone cliffs of the Dolomites!

The Dolomites offer very good connections between ski resorts. Also, they have an excellent system of cozy and comfortable mountain huts. Besides, this Haute Route offers a perfect combination of off-piste skiing with great ski touring days.

Anyway, the vertical gain with skins will not be more than 700 metres a day. So, it’s a tour accessible to anyone with fat skis, more downhill oriented.

Also, this adventure in the Dolomites is going to be an unforgettable food experience! We will enjoy the exceptional Italian local food, culture and hospitality. The best and delicious meals await us in the mountain huts!

So contact me if you want to join me on this ski tour far from the crowds. Get in touch with me and let’s organize the ski week of your life! And if you want to climb the highest peak in the Dolomites, join me for a 1-day ascent to Marmolada (3343 m).
