The Haute Route of the Dolomites from Passo Rolle to Lake Braies is probably one of the most beautiful ski tour of the Alps.
In these mountains that I know very well (because I’m from here), you’ll enjoy fresh tracks on incredible backcountry terrain, far from the crowds and busy ski resorts.
The idea is to go on a hut to hut tour which requires a little work, yes, but I think you’ll agree your uphill efforts were well spent as you enjoy the long runs down remote valleys, dominated by the towering limestone cliffs that characterize the Dolomites!
The exceptional local food, the local culture and the hospitality are the highlights of doing a ski touring trip here.
The itinerary and the program will be defined based on your wishes, your ski level and the weather and snow conditions of course ! Looking for the best snow is one of the major objective of the trip.
Here is a program I like to propose to my friends and clients coming here for a week.
Day 0 – Meeting in Falcade in the evening
Day 1 – Ski traverse of Monte Mulaz, night at the Rifugio Fuciade
Day 2 – Ski traverse of Forca Rossa, some freeride in the Marmolada, night at Rifugio Fiacconi
Day 3 – Ski traverse of Sella Group (Val Mesdi), night at Passo Gardena or Colfosco in a B&B/hotel
Day 4 – Ski traverse of Puez group, night at Rifugio Fanes
Day 5 – Ski traverse of Croda Ciamin, night at Rifugio Sennes
Day 6 – Ski traverse of Riciogogn / Croda del Becco down to Lake Braies. Taxi transfer to the hotel / starting point to get the car back.
The average climb is 700 meter per day, but just for half the days. It could get longer or shorter depending on what you are looking for, 100% ski touring or alternate also with freeride skiing by taking the lifts.
The mountain huts are very nice overall, good food and very good accommodation. It’s usually possible to get a private room (except at Fiacconi), sometimes even with private bathroom as well.
There are some days where we will need to get the lift pass and there will be some taxi transfers.
If you plan to come here and if you are looking for a ski tour far from the crowd and among a beautiful environment, please get in touch with me and let’s organize the ski week of your life 😉
