Skisafari in South Tyrol.. let yourself be inspired
We take you to our snowy world with our detailed Guide
The ski safari is skiing on the slopes with a guide. We take lifts to get up there. We start in the morning by car to Corvara or San Cassiano where the tours start. The whole day is organised by your mountain and ski guide Klaus. You really don’t have to worry about a thing and can enjoy the beautiful panorama, the slopes and the enchanting world of the Dolomites. You experience a day full of events, see many different valleys, villages, mountains and steep cliffs and can, if you like, experience some interesting gastronomic delights. Klaus also organises lunch in a typical rustic or elegant hut with excellent, regional dishes. On all tours you can also learn a lot about the history of the Dolomite valleys (situation in World War I, culture, alpine history, geology, etc.).
1) Sellaronda (clockwise or counter-clockwise)
This is probably the best known ski tour or ski crossing of the Dolomites, whereby the entire Sella group is circumnavigated. You cross the Badia Valley, via the Passo di Campolongo and past Arabba and traverse the Passo Pordoi to Canazei. From there, you continue over the Sella Pass to Val Gardena and finally over the Passo di Gardena to Corvara or San Cassiano. If possible, the Saslong (men’s world ski run) can also be used.
2) Tour of the Great War - Giro della Grande Guerra
Here, you are following the trails of scenes from the 1st World War. Start in Corvara or San Cassiano, continue over the Campolongo Pass to Arabba and to Malga Ciapella at the foot of the Marmolada. From here to Alleghe and continue beneath the Monte Pelmo and Civetta to Averau and Cinque Torri. Finally to Lagazuoi, from there downhill to Capanna Alpina. There you are pulled by horses to the next slope and finally return to San Cassiano or Corvara.
3) Marmolada – Queen of the Dolomites
Impressive skiing on a glacier and the highest mountain of the Dolomites, next to the summit of the Antelao. The different geological rocks of Portavescovo, Marmolada and the Sella massif are especially interesting, as well as the breathtaking view over the Marmolada south wall, where Reinhold Messner, Heinz Mariacher, Igor Koller and others wrote even more alpine history.
4) Tofane and Cinque Torri
The Tofana (one of the landmarks of Cortina) has interesting descents and the ladies downhill ski run. Another possibility is the SUPER 8. Starting point is Corvara or San Cassiano. One circles, so to speak, the Cinque Torri and Averau, which lie above Cortina. This also takes you past the old theatres of war. A very nice area for skiing, as it is mostly very quiet and not many people are out and about. It’s a great way to enjoy the SCOIATTOLI (Cortina climbing guild). Finally, on to Lagazuoi, from there downhill to Capanna Alpina. There you are pulled by horses to the next slope and finally return to San Cassiano or Corvara.
5) Sas dla Crusc and Gran Risa
This day of skiing can also be started from Riscone. Otherwise from Corvara or San Cassiano. The tour crosses the entire Badia Valley and takes in the world-famous Gran Risa (men’s giant slalom course). Afterwards, we ski beneath the Sas dla Crusc, a very interesting and peaceful area from a religious point of view as it is the birthplace of the Saint Freinademetz. In addition, the Sas dla Crusc is a mountain of particular mountaineering interest. Reinhold Messner and others have left their mark here and written alpine history. Skiing in the afternoon sun is extremely pleasant, particularly when the Sas dla Crusc and the adjacent peaks of La Varella and Conturines turn red and orange. You can also make a detour into the Val Stella Alpina, which lies next to the Sassongher above Colfosco.
