Description

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.

Mountain Guide

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

On our meeting day the forecast was for a foggy day. Renato was a professional and decided not to go full on off pist, not only that he was very creative and found a way to help us practice some great techniques, while still finding some nice fresh snow and a lot of fun. Exactly what I expected when I was looking for a mountain guide, some to enjoy with, that on the same time will be responsible and reasonable. He is super experienced- instructing the local mountain guides on their training.

Our Guide was cold and distant and not sensitive to our needs. We are older women who wanted to go slow. She tried to convince us not to do the Via Ferrata because she thought we couldn’t handle it. Not true. I went through it and absolutely loved it. I took my time, and she seemed very rushed. The trip I had scheduled was canceled because of a problem with the route being closed. We had to do a different via Ferrara. That was OK. I wanted to take my time. Enjoy the scenery and she was hurry. Hurry hurry us. When we got to The Via Ferrata, she said there was no way we could handle it and that we shouldn’t go. I thoroughly enjoyed my climb, but my friend felt so pressured and uncomfortable by our guide not to go that she turned back. Unfortunate but I had a fabulous climb. (The tour was guided by certified mountain guide Benny)

I had an amazing climbing experience through Renato & guides! My guide, Robert, was great. He was very helpful beforehand making sure I had all the information I needed before we met. He also chose a perfect route that was suitable at my level climbing multipitch for the first time. The whole trip I felt safe and in great hands with Robert. He was even very patient with me when I could not tie a girth hitch after trying over and over. When I return to the Dolomites next I will definitely be scheduling directly through you guys again. If I hear of anyone else traveling to the Dolomites that wants to climb I would also highly recommend them to use your guide service and to ask specifically for Robert!

Robert was a fantastic guide! We had no via ferrata experience and we were able to complete an intermediate one with his help, would highly recommend.
