The Dolomites, inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009, are some of the most stunningly beautiful mountains in the world, with dramatic skiing to match.
This five day back-country skiing loop around the Fannes-Sennes-Braies and Dolomiti Ampezzane Natural Parks will show you the best of this region while offering you many of the best descents in the area: long runs down remote valleys, dominated by the towering limestone cliffs. The journey covers a lot of ground and, and in order to get to some of the best off-piste downhill terrain, climbing skins (attached to the bottoms of your skis to help you ski up hill) are required – but we think you’ll agree your uphill efforts were well spent as you enjoy the ski down!

And the Dolomites have much more to offer than the skiing – throughout you’ll experience the rich combination of cultures, traditions, and cuisin es – Italian, German, and Ladin – found in northern Italy, that make this region and World Heritage Site so unique.

     Molto Bene!
    Great views, great places to stay, great food/drink and even great weather.....you were able to accommodate a 15 month old as well as the over 50 crowd.  Lots of logistics for you to manage and it was well done.  We'll have great, fun memories of your beautiful country and we'll be talking about this trip for a long time. Please use me as a positive reference for your company any time.
