The Marmolada is the highest peak of the Dolomites and a paradise for freeriders! I invite you to come here and enjoy one day or several days of exciting off-piste skiing.

Wide spaces, huge turns, a lot of deep powder, freedom: that’s what it’s all about! I will take you inside the amazing white peaks of the Marmolada and we’ll discover impressive couloirs and off-piste ski runs.

It is difficult to promise perfect virgin powder snow…although I will do my best to find it! However, I can promise delicious Italian food, excellent coffee and a magnificent scenery.

During this trip, we’ll go to the Marmolada side, known as the “Queen of the Dolomites”. With 3 cable cars we will go up to its second highest point, Punta Rocca (3265 m), where there will be an excellent off-piste ski descent of more than 1000 m to Lago di Fedaia, a beautiful lake at 2000 m.

Here are some of the routes I like to ski at the Marmolada:

  • Couloir 11:30
  • Lydia descent
  • The Canyon
  • Descent Vallone d’Antermoia (Punta Serauta)
  • Punta Penia (ski mountaineering)

I really enjoy visiting this place because it is a perfect playground to learn the basics of freeriding. Besides, we can always reach higher levels of difficulty in order to please everybody.

And if you want other challenges, we can also go freeride skiing at Pordoi or Sassolungo.

Feel free to get in touch with me if you plan to come to this area. We can discuss together about one or several days of great guided skiing!

About the Guide

 
 

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.
