One day introduction to the fantastic world of ski mountaineering. Away from the noisy crowds on the slopes, we immerse ourselves in a world of soft powder, spectacular views, pristine valleys and fun runs.
Ski mountaineering in the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a unique experience: wide snowy slopes, perfect for skiing, are bordered by vertical rock faces and sharp peaks, making the panorama simply fantastic.

The Dolomites offer numerous itineraries suitable for beginners and novices, or even for those who want to try ski mountaineering for the first time to see if it is an activity they enjoy!
Here are a few examples, but I can also suggest other routes in the most beautiful places of the Dolomites!

Ski touring at Forca Rossa del San Pellegrino
Ski touring at forcella Giau and Corvo Alto (monte Mondeval) – ogni giovedìi
– Ski touring at forcella della Neve on Cadini di Misurina
– Ski touring at forcella Forada on Monte Pelmo
– Ski touring at Spiz de Zuel (Civetta)

On the other hand, if you already know that ski mountaineering is your sport and you are convinced that you want to approach this discipline in an organic and complete way, I suggest you look at the programme of the basic ski mountaineering course.

What you need to know:
  • The minimum age should not be seen as a rigid parameter, but rather as a rough indication that will obviously depend on the technical skills, experience and level of training of the participants. If you feel that you or a member of your group would be able to take part in the excursion if your age were lower, please contact me directly at info@giovanni-orlando.it or call +39 328 83 15 601. In this case it is compulsory to contact the guide before registering for the activity.
  • The maximum number of persons indicated must be intended for a single guide. In the case of larger groups, one or more mountain guides will be used, in accordance with the maximum ratio indicated on the activity sheet. In this case, please send an e-mail to info@giovanni-orlando.it or call +39 328 83 15 601.
  • 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.
  • The fares shown in the ‘The fare does not include’ section are indicative and may vary.
  • 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.
  • The times indicated for carrying out the activities are subject to variations due to weather conditions and the physical state of the area (snowfall, terrain conditions, etc.) and necessarily depend on the opening and closing dates of the ski lifts, which are set seasonally/annually by the ski lift operators and are therefore in no way attributable to the mountain guide.
  • Minors under the age of 18, if unaccompanied, require a parental or guardian waiver to be given to the guide prior to the excursion.
