Dolomites Italy Super Ski Tour

Overview

The Dolomites offer one of the largest networks of ski resorts in the world including access to 12 main ski regions and 450 ski lifts. This region of the Italian Alps is one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe and was declared a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site. These surrounding ski areas offer anywhere from 1800’-6000’ foot vertical runs ranging from the top of the Marmolada [7.5 miles/ 6,000’ (12km/1800m) descent on glaciers & groomed runs or off-piste] to hundreds of miles of wide open groomers that spread through the Italian Dolomites.

Each day the group will use the lifts to ski the surrounding resorts and off piste areas. You will have a private van that will take the groups to different starting locations throughout the trip so you get to really experience skiing the Dolomites. Your local Italian guides know the area very well and have lots of great spots away from the crowds. Ski resorts will include Alta Badia, Arabba-Marmolada, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Val di Fassa & Val Gardena.

There are dozens of great restaurants, bars & areas to explore around the villages and the Dolomites. The après scene in Italy is well known for their hospitality at a local family owned mountain hut trying their home made drinks to the ever popular spots in town that will have people dancing in their ski boots. The Dolomiti Superski area takes great delight in offering a true Italian food.

THE RIDING EXPERIENCE

The Dolomites are home to the largest interconnected ski lift system in the world. The Dolomiti Super Ski spreads over 12 Valleys, 450 lifts, 750 miles of trails and endless sidecountry/ backcountry options. Experience pure Italian skiing on the glacier slopes of the 3.000 m high Marmolada and enjoy the fresh powder across the Ladin valleys while admiring the majestic peaks of the Italian Alps mountain scenery. The Dolomites are known for their long, groomed trails, endless backcountry runs and some of the best couloir skiing in the world. Legendary runs like the Val Mesdì offers one of the most popular off-piste itineraries around the Dolomites. The run sits in a deep ravine starting by the Rifugio Boè and arriving in the Colfosco (Alta Badia) area. The route offers an incredible panorama that is enclosed by the towering walls of the Sella massif. A truly unique and classic ski experience for everyone.

THE CULINARY EXPERIENCE

One of the best parts of a trip to the Dolomites is the culinary experience. From classic Ladin dishes to authentic local Italian dishes, the area will offer a truly unique opportunity to try some of the best food you have ever had. With a wide variety of award-winning restaurants, and over a dozen Michelin rated restaurants - the area has a reputation for fantastic food. Each area offers a wide variety of small local eateries and traditional restaurants serving plenty of homemade pizza, pasta and specialty dishes.

Fresh local dishes and ingredients from the surrounding valleys are served every day at breakfast and all the group dinners during the trip. Lunches during the day will be based on the area we are skiing and will range from traditional rifugios to restaurants in the valleys. Across the Alpine of the Dolomites are classic Italian rifugios. These mountain huts across the valleys and slopes offer cosy restaurants that are also cafés, après pubs and mountain inns. They offer hearty local dishes, traditional vino, beers & bombardinos/calimeros between ski runs. The culinary experience of the Dolomites is an incredible one.

THE LODGING EXPERIENCE

The area offers accommodations for every level of experience you are looking for. From high end hotels and chalets, to 3 & 4 star modern hotels, as well as classic mountain rifugios, the Dolomites offer all of it with a touch of Italian character. Our guides and hosts have been living and traveling through the Dolomites for decades. We have selected hotels and chalets that offer the best options for ski trips and comfortable lodging during your trip. Breakfast is included in all of the hotel stays and, in some cases, include breakfast & dinners. The locations of our lodging will allow our guests to access town as well as the nearby areas to ski. Wellness and spa areas are available at the hotels to relax after a day of skiing. A classic Italian lodging experience!
