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


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.

What People are Saying about Etienne Bernard


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!
