Ski Mountaineering

This is the perfect activity for those who wish to get away from ski slopes and immerse themselves in the peaceful landscapes of the magnificent snow-covered mountains of the Ampezzo Dolomites.
Ski mountaineering combines the pleasure of hiking with a passion for skiing, as it involves climbing mountains on skis with skins and then descending on skis.

Depending on your level of experience, Cortina offers a range of itineraries: easy routes with low gradients in sunny areas, or even along mountain roads leading to mountain huts, such as mountain huts Scoiattoli, Averau, Dibona, Mietres, Malga Federa and Malga Ra Stua, as well as endless opportunities for ski touring experts with many beautiful peaks and steep couloirs. 

It is highly recommended to rely on the Mountain Guides of Cortina for local knowledge of the territory and snow conditions and mandatory to carry emergency equipment in case of avalanches (Artva, shovel, probe).


For experienced skiers who love the thrill of a steep descent, Cortina offers some of the best freeride areas, both in terms of challenge and sheer beauty.
The Cristallo, Tofane, Faloria, Cinque Torri and Lagazuoi are among the most famous areas.
For those who want to ski off-piste along steep ridges like Creste Bianche, Bus di Tofana, Vallon dei Comàte and Sci Club 18, it is highly recommended to rely on local experienced Mountain Guides who have deep knowledge of the area and snow conditions and to carry emergency equipment in case of avalanches (Artva, shovel, probe).
