Ski holidays in Italy: skiing in the Italian Dolomites

The Dolomites are part of a mountain range in the Pre-Alps of north-east Italy, located halfway between Venice and Innsbruck in the province of Belluno, in the north of Veneto region. Touring the region for a week, we will take you to spectacular areas. Between touring skiing ascents and backcountry skiing descents, you will have the chance to experience a variety of landscapes far from the mainstream ski areas. Imposing rock faces alternate with welcoming forests, gentle slopes with impressive corridors, and reassuring tracks with forgotten trails.

We have prepared this 8-day (with 6 days of skiing) freeriding trip for you to guarantee wonder, thrills and unforgettable memories. Each freeriding and backcountry itinerary has been designed by our team of mountain professionals, focusing on the most outstanding areas. During the day, we provide customised supervision by an experienced PowderWeGo guide to make sure you feel safe. In the evening, you can relax in the high-quality accommodation and enjoy the best of regional specialities.

A few words about the Dolomites, Italy's skiing paradise

Before taking the name "Dolomites" in the 19th century, in homage to French geologist Déodat de Dolomieu (1750-1801), they were commonly called Monti Pallidi, the "pale mountains".
This mountain range in the north of the Italian Alps has 18 peaks over 3000 metres (highest point: the Marmolada, 3343 m)..

Its mountain landscapes are among the most beautiful in the world, characterised by steep cliffs and a high density of very narrow, long, deep valleys. Some of these ridges rise to over 1500 metres above sea level and are among the highest in the world. To the south of the range, in the Belluno area, above the Piave Valley, the Dolomites Bellunesi National Park has been in existence since 1990, covering an area of 31,512 hectares (12 square miles).

The current glaciers (Marmolada, Pale di San Martino) are very small and retreating. At the bottom of the large rock faces, vegetation appears and we find the usual mountain layering: coniferous forest from 2,000 m (fir, larch, Cembro pine), with mountain pastures at the top and crops lower down. Between April and June, when the snow melts, there is an explosion of flowers: gentian, rhododendron, edelweiss and bellflower among many others. These flowers and plants are also used for their medicinal properties and as ingredients in the local cuisine, as well as for flavouring grappa. 


You will be staying in a beautiful family-run hotel at the foot of the Passo Pordoi, tastefully decorated in pure Alpine style. It has spacious and comfortable rooms, a swimming pool and a spa. Their restaurant will delight you with a delicious traditional cuisine featuring northern Italian specialities and a selection of fine wines.
