A 7-day off-piste skiing trip in company of a certified mountain guide from the Azimut Montagne team. The Dolomites is the perfect place for freeride skiers. Are you coming?
The Dolomites is a powerful Italian mountain range declared World Heritage since 2009. Its mountains are really unique because they don’t seem alpine peaks despite belonging to the Alps.
The Dolomites propose high snow quality and very interesting ski runs for off-piste skiing. Besides that, all its ski centers are connected by cable cars. Undoubtedly, this northern region of Italy is a must for every freeride skier.
During this 7-day off-piste skiing trip, we’ll establish our base camp in Corvara, a village of the province of Alta Babia, at the foot of Sassongher.
Corvara will let us know the amazing surroundings and all the freeride-ski touring runs available. Furthermore, there is an active nightlife in the village so you can have fun after the ski program of the day.
If I had to summarize the main features of the Dolomites, I’d list the following ones:
Find here below an estimate itinerary of this amazing off-piste skiing adventure:
Our meeting point will be at the Corvara hotel or may at the train station of Oulx (Line TGV from Paris to Milan). Then, we’ll be taken to the Dolomites.
The first day will just consist in acclimatization with a short introduction of backcountry skiing. We’ll dinner and rest in the hotel.
FROM DAY 2 TO 7
During the next five days we will have the objectives of skiing around the best spots of the Dolomites:
This freeride skiing trip is designed for advanced skiers. You have to know how to deal with all snow conditions and very steep terrains. Moreover, good physical shape is also necessary because we might have short climbs or hikes of no more than 45 minutes per day.
IMPORTANT: if you are joining a group, please be aware that I need a minimum of participants to guarantee the departure. You’ll be notified the latest 21 days before the starting date in case I need to cancel because of a lack of participants. Your money will then be transferred back. This trip is organized by “AZIMUT” - Atout France IM005120010
at Oulx train station or hotel in Corvara
We enjoy very much discovering and re discovering the most beautiful spots in the world, in the Ecrins mountain range but also all around the planet.
Together with the guides in the team, we will share with you unique moments and an amazing journey. From les Ecrins to Chile, from Morocco to Greenland, from Les Gorges du Verdon to Japan, from Italy to Norway… tons of destinations offering all types of mountain activities, different every season. It makes us so happy when I can share them with my friends and clients.
Merci beaucoup à Manu et Antoine, nos deux guides, pour cette excellente semaine. Ils ont été aux petits soins et très professionnels: s\'assurant que chacun était en sécurité et profitait le plus possible de son séjour, de la montagne et de la bonne neige ;). L\'hébergement, à l\'hôtel Les Agneaux était aussi fantastique: nourriture faite maison, locale, chambres très confortables et propriétaire encore une fois aux petits soins. C\'était top!
We really enjoyed the trip. As well the group, the skiing as the guide. A good hotel with enough facilities and very guest friendly. Thank you for your service and organization
What an incredible experience. Everything went superbly , the guides, organization and the team did a spectacular job.
I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.

Trip was excellent but explore share needs to provide more information, the only reason I knew what was going on is that I was with Azimut on another trip.
I climbed with Marco. He is a very experienced mountain guide with a huge knowledge. I felt safe the whole time. A lot of laughs during the trip. Thank you explore-share.
Our guide was Christopher Garrigues
Le boss et toute l\'équipe sont des grands passionnés, et ça se sent
Great experience with very knowledgeable and friendly guides. Great atmosphere.
I joined this trip 30 Jul - 2 Aug with my friend from Japan. This was third try of mountaineering in foreign countries . The weather was not good, but we were able to stand on the summit. It was amazing experience for us because we have wanted to climb European mountains for a long time. We appreciate our guide and support staffs. Thank you!
My trip was great and the guides were the best!!!
More challenging than I thought I would be. Happy to get up; happy to get down. All 3 guides were great. Showed confidence, and took very good care of us :)
