Dolomites On-Piste Skiing Safari

Dolomites Ultimate Ski Safari

Join us for the ultimate ski safari, and ski the Dolomites most famous resorts, staying in mountain rifugios and charming B&Bs, and enjoying lift-service access to hundreds of miles of prepared terrain – you may never ski the same run twice!

Trip Overview

The imposing peaks of the Dolomite Mountains provide extraordinary terrain for skiing and snowboarding. Boasting the number one ski resort in the world, and a past Winter Olympics site to boot, the Dolomites are a winter sports paradise for families, beginners, and champions alike. Plus, the sun shines an unparalleled 8 days out of 10 in the sunny winter paradise of the Dolomites – more than any other range in the Alps!
On this incredible Ski Safari, you’ll explore a wide variety of the finest ski resorts of the Dolomiti Superski. You’ll have 5 full days of skiing to get to know these mountains well. And one of the beauties of skiing in the Dolomites is that you can ski from resort to resort, returning to a base camp hotel, or moving from rifugio-to-rifugio each night. And, on this exciting ski safari, you’ll do both!
Each evening you’ll experience the welcoming atmosphere of a hotel or a rifugio  – an alpine mountain inn set high atop the mountains with excellent views – and savor the excellent culture and cuisine unique to the region. Crossing from region to region – the South Tyrol, Badia, and Cortina – your taste buds will enjoy the unique combination of flavours resulting from the disparate Italian, Austrian, and Ladin cultures found in these valleys.
With lift-service pistes to help you move from resort to resort, and this much terrain, you may never ski the same run twice!

Hotels and chalets are available in the larger villages, while agriturismos (working farms with accommodations similar to B&Bs) are more common in rural areas.

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.
