Do you want to discover the most popular freeride descent of the Dolomites? Then join me for this day-trip and let’s ski the amazing Val Mesdi route!

This popular 6km descent runs through a steep ravine enclosed by high rocky walls. It crosses the Sella Group from the northern slopes of Piz Boè (3152 m) to the town of Colfosco, on the Val Badia valley.

Our day trip starts taking the Sass Pordoi cable car, which offers breathtaking views of the unique alpine landscape. Then, after a short descent and a 45-minutes hike (we might need skins), we will reach the Rifugio Boè, where Val Mesdi (or Val Mezdì), the most popular freeride descent in the Dolomite Mountains, awaits us.

At the end of this incredible run we will reach the Alta Badia ski resort, in Colfosco. And after skiing part of the Sella Ronda, another famous circuit of the Sella Group, we will be back at our starting point.

So, if you are ready to try the most awesome freeride run of the Dolomites, then please contact me. I’ll be glad to enjoy this unique winter adventure with you!

I also offer a Freeride day outing in Marmolada and a 3-day ski touring expedition in Val di Fassa. Check them out!

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
