Highlights

 
     

    This ski touring trip in Ortler progresses in a glacial landscape, surrounded by summits and couloirs. We are indeed in Italy, even if it feels like Switzerland or Austria. This is the South Tyrol.

    The ambiance, the warm welcome and the comfort of this trip from hut to hut are top notch.

    One one side, we have great ski on glaciers, grandiose landscapes and a unique mountain experience. On the other side, we enjoy the cozy refuges in good company. In addition, the great food is ideal to refuel our bodies.

    Discover the patrimony of the beautiful alpine Italian valleys during this 6-day ski touring trip.

    The ext departure is from 04/23/2017 to 04/28/2017, but if you want to we can also set other dates.

    Do you find this program tempting? Then please contact me, I would be thrilled to take you to Ortler!

    Other places where I like to take my clients ski touring in Italy include Mt Viso and Val Pellice, have a look at them!

    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.
