    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.

    About the Guide


    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.

    Kent Fasiang
    Etienne was an outstanding guide. His knowledge of both the local terrain and ski mountaineering skills were outstanding. Route selection was appropriate for skill level and The originally planned trip had to be changed due to lack of snow and the weather of the day. The alternative was equal if not greater than the original plan. Etienne did a great job of adjusting the plan and making it a great day. Highly recommend.

    This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I\'ve never done something like this before. We\'ve been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We\'ve quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

    Top of the world, literally!! We enjoyed our experience from start to end to say the least. Etienne was very personable, experienced and tailored our climb for the group. We felt safe and comfortable with our guide as he was a certified mountain guide and knows the Dolomites like the back of his hand. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you!
