Alps, Dolomite Mountains
Feb, Mar, Apr
The Val di Fassa is a huge valley within the Dolomite mountain range in Italy. The valley offers a great variety of fun and exciting activities. From ice climbing in the winter to rock climbing in the summer. However, because the valley is so big, and so beautiful, I believe exploring it is the best way to appreciate it. And on this 3 day hut to hut ski touring trip, you will have ample opportunity to explore this amazing place.
With the trip being 3 days, you will have a chance to thoroughly see the Val di Fassa. And believe me when I tell you, there is a great deal to see. The landscape is breathtaking. And whenever you decide to look up, you will be greeted by the snowy peaks of the Dolomites. We will venture deep within the valley during the day. And every night we will stay in one of the many huts located throughout the mountain range. Thus giving you the chance to admire the valley in the evening, as the glimmering light from the moon and stars reflects off the snow.
Some of the highlights will include the Passo del Mulaz, the Passo delle selle, the Picol Laste, the Cima Vallacia, the valley of Duron, and the Rifugio Antermoia, along with so much more.
There will be some difficult areas on this trip, including skiing on black slopes. As a result, participants should have previous off-piste skiing experience. They should also be in good physical shape as 3 days of ski touring in the Val di Fassa can be as tiring as it is rewarding.
The Val di Fassa is a beautiful area of the Italian Alps, and I believe spending 3 days ski touring through it will give you a great opportunity to truly appreciate it. If you want to join me, please send me a request.
And if you can only spend one day in the Val di Fassa, I can also guide you on a single day ski tour as well.
The meeting place will be Campitello di Fassa, which is a small village in the Val di Vassa resort area.
Rifugio Fuciade or the Albergo Miralgo on the first night and the Rifugio Ciampedie for the second night.
For participants who wish to enjoy more time in the Val di Fassa, there are several hotels in the 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 touring boots, touring skis and skins 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.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
