Trip Overview

An On-Piste Ski Safari is one of the most incredible ways to explore the Italian Alps in winter! Ski across the Dolomites from valley-to-valley, resort-to-resort, enjoying the advantage of lift service pistes. No hiking, no snowshoeing, no skinning – just skiing, pure and simple, so you can focus on enjoying your downhill turns! Nowhere else in the world can you access such a variety of lift-service skiing terrain covering so much ground, where no two days of skiing are ever the same!
 
Our ski safaris offer much more than classic resort skiing: in addition to descending beautiful pistes at the Dolomiti Superski – the number one ski resort in the world, you’ll enjoy several different accommodations during your trip. Each evening you’ll experience the welcoming atmosphere of hotels and rifugios – alpine inns set high atop the mountains, where you can savor the excellent culture and cuisine unique to the region.

Want to learn more about our Mountain Inns & Rifugi?
Rifugi – or mountain huts in English – are the classic accommodation for hikers, climbers, mountaineers, and ski mountaineers in the Alps. Set in spectacular locations high in the Dolomites, rifugi are accessible only on foot (with a few exceptions that are reachable by car). These marvelous establishments are open primarily in the summer, with a select few in winter, and offer meals and sleeping facilities.

The Dolomite rifugi are considered the best in the Alps. While some are dormitory style with bunk beds, many meet the standard of a simple guest house with private rooms and en-suite bathrooms, and each has its own unique character and charm. Bedding and linens are provided, hot showers are available, and meals are served in common dining areas – like a small mountain inn set high in the mountains with the most incredible vistas in the Dolomites. Whether you’re hiking in summer or skiing in winter, an overnight rifugio stay is not to miss on a Dolomite holiday.

To learn more about rifugi in the Dolomites, check out our Rifugios in the Dolomites article, and learn about one of the best ways to experience these incredible mountains!
