You arrive in Cortina d’Ampezzo. After checking into your hotel, you have the evening free. Take this time to explore the town. The Dolomites are visible in the distance, and they’re a preview of the adventures that await you. Maybe find a local restaurant to try some Italian food. The first day is all about settling in and getting ready for the week of skiing ahead.
Your first full day of skiing begins near the renowned resort town of Cortina. The morning is dedicated to getting accustomed to the local terrain. You’ll use the lift systems to explore different slopes, each offering its own unique set of challenges and scenic vistas. As you ski, you’ll be surrounded by the Dolomites’ signature limestone cliffs, a sight that never gets old. In the afternoon, the adventure continues with a cable car ride up to Rifugio Lagazuoi. The area is dotted with remnants from World War I, including old fortifications and tunnels.
The morning starts with a thrilling downhill run taking you to Capanna de Alpina. Here, you’ll transition to skins for the next leg of your journey. As you make the climb to Col de Locia, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of Monte Ciaval. The valley opens up to reveal a landscape that looks like it’s been pulled straight from a painting. Your destination for the night is Rifugio Fanes. The Dolomites are known for their exceptional huts, and Rifugio Fanes is no exception.
Your day starts at Rifugio Fanes, where you’ll set out for one of the region’s most stunning ski tours up to Monte Ciastel. The ascent is a journey in itself, offering glimpses of the Tofana di Rozes, a renowned rock climbing face. Reaching the sub-peak of Bivouac della Pace, you’ll feel on top of the world. The descent is just as exhilarating, taking you back down the route you climbed. You’ll return to Rifugio Fanes for another night, giving you more time to enjoy the Italian wine and fine cuisine that the Dolomites’ huts are famous for.
You’ll say goodbye to Rifugio Fanes in the morning and make your way up to Forca Ciamin. The ascent is steady but rewarding, with views that stretch out in every direction. After reaching the peak, you’ll ski down towards Rifugio Pederù. From there, you’re some hours of skinning away from reaching Rifugio Sennes. Despite its remote location, this rifugio offers excellent food and comfortable lodging, making it a perfect place to recharge before the next day’s adventure.
The day begins at Rifugio Sennes, from where you’ll embark on a classic Dolomites ski tour to Picco di Vallandro. The ascent is challenging but worth every drop of sweat. Once at the top, you’ll have a panoramic view that makes it all worthwhile. The descent is equally thrilling, leading you to Rifugio Pratopiazza. This rifugio offers not just comfort but also stunning views of your next day’s challenge: the Grande Piramide.
Your final full day of skiing is nothing short of spectacular. Starting from Rifugio Pratopiazza, you’ll make your way to the summit of Grande Piramide. The climb is a fitting finale to a week of extraordinary skiing. After enjoying the long ski down, you’ll make your way back to Cortina. It’s your last night, so it’s a good time to reflect on the week’s adventures and perhaps enjoy one last Italian meal.
After a week of unforgettable skiing and breathtaking views, it’s time to pack up and head home. You’ll leave with great memories and a deep connection to this incredible mountain range.
