Description

Famous for everything from amazing views to an unrivaled collection of via ferrata spots, the Dolomites in Italy are truly amazing. And for 5 wonderful days, I would like to guide you on a ski mountaineering adventure in the Brenta Dolomites.

Each day of this trip will be different. On the first day, we will focus primarily on reviewing safety and climbing techniques. We will review how to use the self-rescue ARTVA kit, how to create an ARTVA field as well as go over lessons on ski mountaineering progression techniques. And on the following 4 days, we will go on ski mountaineering trips in different areas of the amazing Brenta Dolomites.

Some examples of where we will go include the top of Prato Fiorito, the top of Soran, the Top of Sella and the Pala dei Mughi. Each one of these spots will undoubtedly thrill you and provide you with exceptional skiing opportunities as well as views.

Since we will be skiing in the mountains, it is important that participants on this trip have prior skiing experience. You should also be in good physical condition as well.

Ski mountaineering in the Brenta Dolomites is an experience you will never forget. It is exciting, beautiful and varied enough to make every day its own unique adventure. To join a group and start ski mountaineering, just send me a request.

I can also take you on a 3-day ski mountaineering trip on the famous Mount Etna in Sicily.

About the guide

My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.

In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.

I spent a lot of money to fly to this location and to stay multiple nights at the guide’s b&b. If I had known I would only spend two hours doing one multi-pitch climb (and not the Pan de Zucchero climb I had paid for), I would’ve saved my money and gone elsewhere with another guide. As a result, I will not be using Explore-Share guides in the future if this is the model. In addition to a very short day climbing, the second day I had planned to add on was canceled when my guide had a stomach ache. He did not refer me to any other guides in the area. I was a woman on my own without transportation on an island in a remote town with a population of 700 people. As a consolation, I spent the day at a nearby beach where a local proceeded to grope and sexually assault me. When I mentioned this to Marco before leaving on my last morning in town, his irreverence was disappointing to say the least.

We had the BEST day climbing with Marco in the Masua Cliffs. It was our first multi pitch so I was a little nervous but Marco made the whole experience seem so relaxed and fun. He was super professional and adjusted easily to suit our level, and sang me lots of songs when I got scared 😅. The climb itself was amazing. Because it was our first time we did an easier 5c route but it had lots of fun challenges - crack, slab, chimney. For me it was super technical and fun. The abseil down was one of the most spectacular feelings I have ever experienced. I will remember it forever. Grazie Marco for a great introduction to outdoor climbing. We can't wait to get more experienced and come back to stay longer and do some of the harder routes.

Marco is a gentleman and a very conscientious guide. He was prepared and always ahead of the game. We will try to go climbing with him again. Thanks Marco! The choice of route was an alternative due to closure on the Pan di Zucchero. It did provide a similar experience from what we can tell. So far I like the Explore-Share Service. It has been efficient and uncomplicated with reminders and an easy way to put us in contact with our guide.

Really good experience booking via Expore and Share. We've been in contact with several companies to arrange a climbing class but non of them were able to book a guide for us, Expore and Share managed. Put guide Marco was super friendly and experienced, we strongly recommend him.

Really enjoyed the Pan Di Zucchero, perfect for beginner climbing like myself. Marco was a great guide, lovely to chat too and I felt really safe during the climb.

Marco is a perfect climbing guide. He takes maximum care of his guest. I felt absolutely safe all the time. He knows the local area best and finds always shadowy routes which was very important at this time 34°C.

The multipitch we did at Pan di Zucchero with Marco was fantastic. A great spot to climb, with amazing views. Marco was also a great guide – friendly, experienced, and willing to pick us up from our accommodation which was very helpful.
