In the Heart of the Dolomites

Combined off-piste and ski touring instructional week

Our small but fine mountain hotel is situated high above Cortina d'Ampezzo at an altitude of 2,230 m in the centre of the fantastic scenery of the Dolomites. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful atmosphere to conclude the day and enjoyable comfort at the same time, you'll find it here.

The ski touring route described below is a selection of the many possible routes in the vast Dolomites ski area. The detailed planning of the program is the guide's responsibility.

Accomodation: Mountain inn at Passo Giau (2,136 m) in great panoramic surroundings. Double rooms and a limited number of single rooms with private facilities, fine cuisine with Italian and Ampezzan specialities, cosy rooms.
