Enjoy some awesome freeride skiing in the Dolomites and its best ski spots like Gruppo del Sella, Marmolada, Arabba, Valle Ornella, Cortina...together with Renato, a local IFMGA / UIAGM Mountain guide.



1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec


The Dolomites have an ideal and unique terrain for freeride, off piste and powder skiing ! There are a lot of possibilities, for beginners as well as experienced skiers looking for challenging and steep descents and couloirs. I’m a local IFMGA mountain guide, I know these ski spots very well !

Among the different skiing places, here are the ones where I like very much guiding my friends and clients:
– Group of Sella (Val Mesdì, Forcella Pordoi, Val Lasties ..)
– Sass pordoi (around 25 couloirs requiring only short walks)
– Tofana
– Marmolada
– Arabba and surroundings
– Valle Ornella
– Corvara
– Cortina d’Ampezzo (Cristallo, Lagazuoi, 5 Torri, Faloria…)
– and many others…

We can ski together for one or several days and go in the spots where the snow and conditions are the best. We can even go on a ski safari, using the car every day and go where the snow is the finest, discovering at the same time the different mountains and ski resorts.

Freeride skiing in the Dolomites is also accessible for the ones who don’t have any experience in off-piste. I will then teach you about the different technics.

I strongly recommend you to come with fat skis in case there is a lot of snow and for specific descents we might do.

The highlight of the ski spots of the Dolomites is the panorama, these huge towers offering breathtaking views and fantastic ski descents, with sometimes more than 2000 meters of negative height.

Skiing in Italy is also famous for enjoying the good local food and wine. Italian are also very welcoming, they like taking very good care of their guests.

Please get in touch with me if you plan to come in the Dolomites during this / the next winter. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and bring you in some of my secret freeride skiing spots.

About the guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Bruno, Patrick, Benedetta & Walter (German speaking). If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.
