Renato, IFMGA certified mountain guide, takes you on an exciting 1-day trip to the Dolomites, freeride skiing down the stunning Val Mesdi.


Dolomite Mountains

1 Day

Jan - Apr




* Explore the Dolomites with an experienced local guide

* Spend an exciting day in Val Mesdi

* Enjoy the breathtaking views from the top of Boè Hut


Join me to spend a day discovering the most popular freeride descent of the Dolomites. Let’s go to Val Mesdi and spend a wonderful freeride ski day!

The Val Mesdi is a valley in the Sella Group, part of the beautiful Dolomites, in Italy. It offers unique, breathtaking panoramic views. Running from south to north, the itinerary is very exciting, with different sections offering changes in the rhythm.

To access Val Mesdi, we will follow the Sella Ronda itinerary, and then go through the Sella Group. From the Sass Pordoi cablecar station, we will go to the Pordoi saddle (2950m) and cross to the left. Then we will put fit the skins on our skis to reach the Boè Hut (2871m), arriving at the entrance of the valley for an amazing descent of about 6 kilometers among high rock walls. Finally, we will reach Colfosco (Alta Badia). To end the program, we will follow the Sella Ronda itinerary to go back to our starting point.

The views from the Boè Hut over Val Mesdi are particularly stunning, and we will take some time to enjoy them.

As this is a very popular descent, the track of this tour is very well groomed. Except, of course, the day after a large snowfall. But in general, it is possible to cross the Boè Hut even with regular ski equipment, simply walking with the skis on our shoulders or backpacks.

This program’s difficulty is classified as moderate, but it can be quite challenging depending on the conditions! If you have any doubts about your level and ability, feel free to ask me and I will be happy to advise you.

Are you tempted to ski down the wonderful Val Mesdi? Then request to book this trip! Let’s set a date and enjoy freeride skiing in the mythical Dolomites. And if you are interested, you can also check out this other option to practice freeride ski in the Sella Group.

Renato & Guides' team



Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Patrick & Walter (German speaking), Paolo, Matteo and Davide.

If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.

What people are saying about Renato & Guides' team



Such a great experience! Davide was our guide and couldn’t have been more accommodating. We climbed it two locations with varying skill levels. He was so helpful and made our trip to the dolomites perfect!



Davide was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and about climbing. He was very careful with making the daily plan each day depending on the weather and what my interests were. He is very patient and great with beginners. He made my trip to the Dolomites very enjoyable. I recommend him very highly.



Agilizaram bem todo o processo, contudo a atividade é demasiado cara



We had an incredible day out with Paolo, our rock climbing guide. Paolo's laid-back and friendly demeanor instantly put us at ease. His extensive knowledge and exceptional climbing skills were impressive. The day went smoothly, allowing us to complete five climbs each. The climbing spot Paolo chose was phenomenal, offering spectacular views that made the experience even more memorable. Thanks Paolo! We look forward to climbing with you again next time we visit.



Robert was a great guide! He let us pick the via ferrata we wanted to climb, and made us both feel confident during the entirety of the climb. I'd highly recommend Robert to anyone looking to explore the Dolomites
