Alps, Dolomite Mountains
Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Dec
If you are looking for an exciting day of steep skiing, then look no further than this trip in the amazing Sella Group.
Located in the Dolomite mountains in Italy, the Sella group massif is unforgettable. There are a number of incredible peaks in the massif. They include the Piz Boe (3,151m), the Cima Pisciadu (2,985m), the Boeseekofel (2,910m), Sass Pordoi (2,952m), and many more. This collection of peaks creates the perfect location for great steep skiing.
The scenery alone is exceptional, from the Dolomites, to the Sella group massif itself. However, when you also include the four gorgeous Ladin valleys where it rests between you just can’t go wrong. Those valleys include the Badia valley, the Gherdeina valley, the Fascia valley and the Fodom valley.
There are a number of famous descents in the massif, but none more than the Val Mesdi from the Pordoischarte. However, along with that descent, there is an array of others that are just as exciting. And on this trip, we will figure out which one is best for you. There is also a wide assortment of channels that include the Holzer couloir, the Sass de Forcia couloir and the couloir of the Ghiacciaio.
A lot of what we will do will depend on your abilities and ski levels. But because the Sella group is so enormous, I have no doubt that regardless of your level, we will find something just right for you.
The Sella group is a spectacular massif. It just looks exciting. It just looks like there will be thrilling steep skiing descents away from the crowds of the nearby resorts. And to put your mind at ease, I can assure that is indeed the case. So if you want to enjoy one of those steep descents, just send me a request.
I would also like to offer a 3 day hut to hut ski tour in the beautiful Val di Fassa.
Meeting point will be established prior to start of trip
For participants who wish to enjoy more than one day there are several hotels in the Val di Fassa area, including the Hotel Oswald in Canazei di Fassa, the Hotel Cristallo in Canazei di Fassa, and the hotel Gran Paradise in in Campitello di Fassa.
Ski or freeriding boots, freeriding/alpine ski helmet, can be rented at the sport shop. Participants should bring warm ski clothes with them as well.
I was born and raised in Campitello, in Val di Fassa. I am a ski instructor and mountain guide.
My parents have always practiced mountaineering, both for leisure and business, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Skiing and climbing were my favourite activities growing up.
As the years went by, I became more and more skilled and experienced under the watch of my father, both in techniques and safety measures. I learned the craft of mountain guide and ski instructor from him, since when his clients or students agreed, I would join them in the mountain.
But the true passion started when I moved to Tione for my studies.
I became ski instructor at 19 and mountain guide at 21.
