Dolomites Ski Traverse

A ski traverse with short ascents and long descents

From the Pala Group eastwards as far as the Three Peaks of Lavaredo! Using ski lifts and then ever upwards with climbing skins (1-3 hrs daily), we reach peaks not even dreamed of by the every-day on-piste skier. Our plan is to follow less well-known routes of the Dolomites, enjoying long runs down quiet valleys, through deserted forests and the exhilarating challenge of some of the many hidden chutes. Our taxi will transfer your luggage to the next stop each transfer morning so that your only encumbrance will be your small daypack, which should definitely contain your camera!

If you are arriving by train or air into Bolzano please advise us so that you may take advantage of our complimentary scheduled transfers from Bolzano to your hotel.
