Join us in the Dolomites for an advanced level off piste skiing holiday in Italy.

Serious off piste skiers know that the Dolomites boast some of the most challenging, exhilarating and best off piste skiing in the world. When we say best, we mean off piste that isn’t just a quick dash off the side of the groomers, we mean descents that will test your strength, skills and stamina, descents through canyons, glaciers and couloirs, proper trips out through the massive rose colored stalagmite rock formations of the Mighty Dolomites.

This tour was created to cater for more experienced off piste skiers who are able to handle varying terrains and more challenging technical descents; trees, couloirs, powder snow and potential ski touring. Led by one of our English speaking IFMGA qualified mountain guides, whose playground from childhood has been the snowfields of these spectacular mountains, groups are a maximum of 6 participants.

The choice of ski terrain is arguably more expansive than anywhere else on the planet, from hidden couloirs, expansive snow fields to tree lined valleys. Check out the classics of Cortina, the snowfields of the Marmolada Glacier, the majestic Sella Massif, whose off piste itineraries include the Val Mezdi, the Val Lasties and the Forcella Pordoi. Take your pick.

Having evaluated the group level, your guide will assess the prevailing weather and conditions in order to choose the best powder spots for your WoW off piste skiing experience.

If the glow of satisfaction turns you on, and personal achievement is what makes you tick, then this is the trip for you!

What to expect

Expect tours of the famous Val Mezdi, where you can drop off the back of Rifugio Maria at the Passo Pordoi.

The initial section is steep, you'll be awestruck by the rock faces enclosing you in on the first part of the descent. After that, this beautiful valley opens out.
You can ski high up on either side, zig zagging down the untracked snow, or ski directly through the middle. The bottom section will test your technique, through trees and rockier parts, but as you look back up the valley from the village of Colfosco, where the forest track emerges, you'll be so proud of your achievement.

Val Lasties, which like the itinerary to the Val Mezdi, is reached by the heart stopping gondola up to Rifugio Maria at the top of the Sella Massif. As you look down on the hairpin bends of the road below, you'll realize just how high you are. You'll drop off towards a small mountain where you'll turn left, almost immediately descending into a wide valley, easily skiable and almost always sunlit.

There are several routes through the powder snowfields of the Marmolada Glacier, though even the trip to get there is well worth the ski.
From the village of Arabba, you'll ski through a wooded valley below the huge faces of the glacier itself, before getting on the first of three swooping gondolas taking you to Punta Rocca at the top of the Marmolada piste and the starting point to the vast snowfields to the left.

At Punta Rocca, you'll be able to see the entire Sella Massif, and the spectacular rock formations of this unique outcrop. The first thing you'll notice as you step off the into the powder, is the lack of tracks, and the lack of people, despite being an off pisters' paradise; indeed, you will barely see another skier.

The routes down the glacier are numerous; skirting one or both sides of the massive rocks in the centre, or taking in a stop at the Pian di Fiaccon mountain hut, which can only be reached by ski or by basket lift from the trail at the bottom of the Lago Fedaia.

If you are feeling adventurous, your guide may lower you by rope through the Canyon itinerary, or take you home by way of the awe inspiring Pian di Trevisan, a narrow military road cut through the rocks down to the village of Alba di Canazei.

The Val Liters is an utter joy, a supreme find, a great achievement. Departing this time from the Vallon lifts at the top of the Boe piste in the village of Corvara, the itinerary takes you off to the left, where you descend over the snowfields to the base of a big climb.

With your skis on your back, you'll climb to the top of the Piz di Lech plateau, where the initial descent to the Valley begins.

Catching your breath at the top, don't forget to check out the most fabulous views over to Santa Croce and Lagazuoi. You can drop straight off the top, or enter through a more mellow couloir, before skiing down through gentle slopes to the entrance of the Valley itself.

Here, your guide will probably decide to rope you into the initial couloir, and you can slide down easily before you decide to put in your first turn.

At the bottom of this narrower section, the valley opens out into a gorgeous, and mostly untracked steepish area simply asking to be skied. Look up to the rock slab overhanging the other couloir entrance, acting as an archway into this perfect valley!

The valley takes you down into some dense woodland, where some quick turns are needed. As you emerge onto the Corvara tracks from the forest, you'll be congratulating yourself on just what an amazing skier you are.
These 4 are just a few of the many itineraries the WoW guides have come up with. Expected to be in awe every 'ski' of the way.
