Description

Program of this ski touring stay: grandiose landscapes, slender and innumerable peaks, endless corridors, huge valleys, typical villages ... a feast for the eyes.

The Dolomites mountains are characterized by an "arrangement" unique in the world, made of an "improbable imbrication" of peaks of a breathtaking verticality, suspended and interspersed with characteristic ledges cliffs, all connected by beautiful valleys opening onto a large network of wooded valleys. Each peak is itself "striped" by many corridors of variable stiffness and widths (in the Dolomites skiing a corridor does not mean "extreme" skiing), sometimes giving the impression of evolving in a maze...

In order to "see some country", we will ride for our ski tours around two different areas: Cortina d'Ampezzo with its mythical mountains like Tofane, Sella, Cristallo, Cadini, Tre Cime ... and San Martino di Castrozza with its unique Altiplano serving many "valle" wild as the Val Travignolo, Val Focobon, Val Pradidali ...

You will evolve "light" with a small "day" backpack only, the travel stuff remaining at the hostel.

The daily average positive elevation is 1000m, the negative elevation is 1400m.

Nights in an inn and comfortable refuge, equipped with showers. Sleeping in dormitory (or room, with supplement), meals in half-board.

Ski passes, transportation (during the stay) and full board (excluding racing food) are included in the price.
