    I’m sure that you’ve heard at least once about the Dolomites. This mineral massif is a spot like no others in the Alps. In fact, it is a World Heritage Site since 2009. Some of its most renown summits include Marmolada, Torre Sella, Tofane and Tre Cime. They are not only known for skiing, but also for via ferrata and climbing.

    I propose to you the following ski touring crossing of the Dolomites. We will combine mechanical lifts with ascents on seal skins. Beautiful skiing is waiting for you!

    Discover the sublime passes, the descents surrounded by impressive walls, the beauty of the villages. And to top it all, the refuges are very comfortable, not to mention the great food!

    You can find below some already planned dates, but keep in mind that if you want we can set a new trip.

    Does this 6-day trip to discover everything the Dolomites have to offer sound tempting? Then join me! All it takes is to contact me and we’ll start planning this amazing trip.

    I also offer another ski trip in the Dolomites where you can stay in a single accommodation for the week, check it out!

    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.
