Do you fancy seven (7) nights in comfortable mountain huts and lodges(rifugi), skiing new slopes every day
We offer an unforgettable week for intermediate and advanced skiers to explore the Dolomites. The Safari, organised through the Arabba Ski School, and led by one of its qualified ski instructors. Spectacularly situated mountain huts and lodges will be your accommodation and provide hearty breakfasts and dinners to fuel your journey through this alpine paradise. The ski touring is done on the groomed pistes and makes use of the Dolomites’ vast network of lifts(450 of them!) and 1200 of groomed runs. Along the way there will be opportunities to ski off-piste depending on snow conditions.
Imagine skiing a new ski area every day and watching the sunset each night from a mountain refuge. Throughout the tour you are guided and coached by skilled Italian ski instructors from the Arabba Ski School.
For the ultimate in hassle-free touring your luggage(i.e. manageable backpack or small bag) is transported for you daily from hut to hut, so all you need to think about is making fresh tracks.
