    Learn Ski Touring in the Adamello - Brenta Dolomites

    Full Description

    Passo Tonale is the ideal place to learn the basics of Ski Touring (also know as Ski Mountaineering or Ski Randonnée). Lots of easy off-piste slopes to learn how to ski in powder snow, many valleys and summits to discover and the Adamello Glacier, the largest in the Italian Alps. This fascinating activity is ideal for confident piste skiers who love the natural beauty of the mountains: open spaces, calm and tranquillity, no crowds. For people who like to ski downhill but also find satisfaction in reaching a summit or a mountain pass after a few hours of skinning uphill. 

    We are based in Ponte di Legno (1 hour drive from Madonna di Campiglio in the Brenta Dolomites) and have a cosy b&b in the centre of town. This is the ideal arrival and depature base. It is also the ideal base for day ski tours to the Brenta Dolomites, Adamello range and Stelvio national Park. We will be happy to create a tailor made ski touring trip for you. 

    Example Itinerary

    It is for you and your guide to decide the exact makeup of your booking however, these itinerary days shown below are an example of how a booking for this activity could be structured.

    Arrival day

    Transfer from your arrival airport to our b&b in Ponte di Legno.

    Day 1 : Off piste skiing and basic avalanche awareness training

    We suggest that you arrive a few days before the start of the course to get your ski legs back! Today we will start with some skiing on the piste, to get to know you and see how you ski. Then we will continue with some easy off-piste, teaching you the right technique according to the type of snow conditions. During one of the off-piste runs, we will stop and start with some basic avalanche awareness training.

    Day 2 : Off-piste skiing technique and how to use skins

    We shall choose some new off-piste itineraries still using the lift system, still working on your off-piste technique. During the day we will teach you how to use your skins and how to climb up hill.

    Day 3 : Pisganino glacier

    It is only your third day but we are all ready going for a full day ski tour! We take the lifts up to 3000 metres above sea level and start our trip by skiing off-piste with a great view of the Adamello Glacier down to Rifugio Mandrone (2500m). After a great descent, it's time to put our skins on a climb 400 metres (about 2 hours) to the Passo Pisgana. From here, we descend for 10km on the Pisganino itinerary, 1800 metres descent.

    Day 4 : Off-piste skiing technique, intermediate avalanche rescue training

    Today we will be fine tuning your off-piste technique and introducing the next step in avalanche safety. We will also familiarise with some orientation skills that are always useful in the case of bad weather.

    Day 5 : Brenta Dolomites or Stelvio National Park

    Depending on how you progressed and on the snow-weather conditions, we will plan what to do today and in the following days (if you have more time). It could be one of the ski tours in the Brenta Dolomites, the Ficazza ski tour in Passo Tonale (300m uphill and 1500m downhill) or one of the ski tours in the Stelvio National Park
