The writer was looking for an alpine adventure. Then, she heard something wild — a “ski safari,” with multi-resort ski days and stays in family-run inns in the Italian Alps.
While hiking in the Italian Alps, I learned about a roving adventure that involved tackling chunks of the Dolomiti Superski (12 ski areas spread across more than 700 miles of slopes on one ski pass) and sleeping at different high-altitude inns, or rifugios, each night. A local company aptly called Dolomite Mountains organized these small-group “ski safaris,” making the moving around (they also transfer duffel bags to each inn) seamless.

One of the best ways to explore the Dolomites in winter is on a Dolomite Mountains Ski Safari
It was on the Stelvio Pass, on its introduction to the world of pro cycling in the 1953 Giro d’Italia, that Italian ‘Champion of Champions’ Fausto Coppi made one of his most famous attacks.
In the Dolomite mountains in Italy you can take a different kind of trip that uses the infrastructure that is there for skiing and hiking to create off-road itineraries that take cyclists deep into the high mountains, says Tom Allan in the Financial Times. Each night along the route ends at a different mountain hut or small hotel.
The Dolomites are among Italy’s most breathtaking wonders, with their jagged peaks taking on a pink tinge in the sunshine. Rather than doing a traditional hike through these glorious mountains, strap yourself in for a trip along the via ferratas.
It sounds easy: “Cruising over rocky passes and through lush meadows.”

Tre fra i tanti modi di vivere la montagna invernale, tre “zoomate” su ciascuno di essi. La prima è dedicata al mix tra “sci intensivo”, panorami naturali e ospitalità di qualità offerto dal Dolomiti Superski. Le successive ci porteranno una tra alcune mete d’élite in Svizzera e l’altra in Valle d’Aosta, per un paio di località che dimostrano che la montagna in inverno non è solo sci.
The main attraction for many people is the variety of activities in the various resort villages, much of the pisted slopes could be deemed intermediate with plenty of easy runs. However, normally there are a vast number of real challenges off piste to keep most advanced skiers happy.
