Open slopes, breathtaking views towards the Pale di San Martino mountain range, and numerous possibilities for never too challenging off-piste skiing descent make the Alpe Lusia-San Pellegrino ski area the perfect destination for those who want to approach the magical world of off-piste skiing.
There are many opportunities for novice freeriders when skiing, from brief downhill rides to long off-piste courses.
The shape of the land, with slopes that are broad and not too steep, makes it ideal for those just starting out. For those feeling more adventurous, you can try out the excitement of steeper slopes close to the Col Rodella cable car.
The day will aim to teach people about skiing away from marked slopes, with advice and recommendations for enhancing off-piste ski technique and managing safety in the unpredictable environment of snowy mountains.

  • It is imperative that participants follow the instructions of the mountain guide before and during the activities and respect any changes to the chosen programme in order to ensure their safety.
  • Fees for facilities, transfers and accommodation are subject to change at the discretion of the operator (external to my company) and are not included in the price of the activity unless otherwise stated.

  • For all itineraries and activities, the guide reserves the right to make changes according to conditions (weather, accessibility, refuges) and the physical condition of the participants.
