An unforgettable experience!
This is a skiing challenge in one of the largest areas in the world covered by one lift pass (1180km of piste). During this grand adventure you will be accompanied by other international skiing enthusiasts, and led by expert guide Martin Reichhalter. Be ready to explore the wonders of the majestic Dolomites.
This tour is designed as a fun enjoyable skiing trip, and not as a competition. In order to take part you must have had a minimum 4 years of skiing lessons and be able to successfully make parallel turns. The tour has a mix of blue, red and black runs. It is therefore very important that you are confident on all three levels. You also need to have a high level of fitness, as there are no rest days.
Each evening you will finish your amazing day with an enjoyable après ski drink and a delicious, nutritious meal. As each night you are staying in a different cabin, it is important to pack an overnight bag with necessities for overnight stays. This trip is also suitable for experienced snowboarders.
Make sure you have a decent backpack as you need to carry your entire luggage during the tour. The best idea is a strong backpack with an inner frame a hip belt. You should be able to find this at a good sport/ski shop.
We recommend taking:
Tracksuit – socks – light sneakers – underwear – ski pully – ski socks – tshirts – warm sweater – sunglasses. Sun cream with a high protection factor and good lip cream are also a must.
Arrive by bus, train or car in Santa Cristina. Meet between 9.00 and 10.00 at the Ruacia parking lot, next to the Gardena Express office in Santa Cristina. At the gathering point there is a space for you to place your luggage. This space is locked and the guide has the key. You will be introduced to the guide and three co-workers before heading to the Rifugio Chiampac for dinner the first night. Between 11.00 and 12.00 everyone proceeds up the lift and heads towards the first overnight hut.
After a good night’s sleep and a rich breakfast, the trip continues to Trevalli (Dell'amore). This is a beautiful ski area with sharp descents from Col Margherita. You stay in Rifugio Larisei.
Today the journey continues from Sam Pellegrino. After skiing in the Civetta ski area, the journey continues to the next mountain cabin. You spend the night at the foot of the Monte Pelmo.
Drive to Alleghe and take a bus to Malga Ciapele. Take the lift to the top the Marmolade, Italy’s highest mountain. Here you will find one of Italy’s most beautiful descents. Then head via Arabba to Rifugio Fredarola to sleep that evening.
Today you descend to Pescul and on to Cinque Torri. Your overnight stay is in the Rifugio Scoiattoli.
Today you only take your day luggage as you are returning to the same cabin in the evening. You will be skiing in Cortina d’Ampezzo, the famous Olympia ski resort.
On Friday you ski on the slopes of the Edelweis stables and return to Val Gardena via Dantercepies, Selva / Wolkenstein and the World Cup descent Sasslong. With the lift you go up again to go to the mountain hut for the last night. This is a great time to reflect on the journey so far.
After the last breakfast in the Rifugio, the tour is over. You can decide if you are going to go skiing for one last day or simply head home.
