Type of Trip
This is your chance to try a new and exciting activity. With this 1-day introductory ice climbing course in Fassa Valley, you’ll learn all the progression and security basics!
Ice climbing involves climbing inclined ice formations and it is generally practiced on frozen waterfalls or ice gullies.
With this ice climbing course you’ll discover a fun and adrenaline-pumping activity. I guarantee there will be excitement to spare! You’ll make your first steps on ice, learn how to use crampons and ice-axes, and even attempt to climb your first ice formations.
All the necessary ice climbing equipment (harness, crampons, ice-axe and helmet) can be provided free of charge. You need to bring warm clothing (see “More info”) and boots that can fit crampons (or ski boots).
This ice climbing course is available to adults and teenagers (14 years and over). However, bear in mind that you need to be in good physical condition.
Winter is the only time to practice this activity so make sure you plan in advance. If you’re visiting the Fassa Valley during the winter months and would like to check out another of the activities I propose, please take a look at my Guided ski tour in Dolomiti SuperSki.
Contact me right now and I’ll answer all your questions regarding ice climbing and our day together. It will be a once in a lifetime experience!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
Please contact me for pricing information.
Make sure you bring along: layers of warm clothes, cramponable boots (alternatively downhill ski boots), gloves, hat, a winter jacket, warm pants and a backpack.
About the Guide
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.
