Day 4: Marmolada
We continue our journey on skis and get to the foot of the Marmolada. If the weather conditions allow it, we go up to the top of the Marmolada (3250m) by funicular. A special treat is waiting for us at this magnificent viewpoint: the descent of 14 kilometres with a difference in altitude of 1800 meters is one of the most beautiful runs in the whole Dolomites area! The wide slopes on the northern face of the Marmolada offer some exciting descents for off skiers. The last descent of the day leads us to our hotel in the little village Sottoguda (1250m), where we will spend one night.

We explore the large ski area with over 80 kilometers of runs, off piste descents through the forests and cozy ski huts. Overnight in our mountain hotel at the Passo Giau.
Day 6: Cortina d'Ampezzo
Skiing from the door we will explore the world famous resort of Cortina, site of the 1956 Olympics and part of the annual World Cup ski racing circuit. Cortina is famous for the awe-in spring scenery and we find ourselves skiing long perfectly groomed runs under the shadow of such majestic peaks as the Tofana, 2650m, Cristallo, 3010m, and Faloria, 2450m. All of these hide wonderful off piste valleys for the adventurous to explore with their guides. After the ski day we visit the town of Cortina with its fabulous shops and cozy coffee bars.

Once again an early start means the runs are ours, at least for the first half hour! Today takes us through the Val Gardena to ski the famous World Cup. downhill course to St Christina, across the valley and up to the Seceda at 2520m. Then there is the picturesque 1300v.m. run down to Ortisei where we cross the valley once again to take the cable car to the Alpi di Siusi. Those who feel they still need more off piste have the alternative of climbing up Shute of the Sasso Piatto (45Min) for a final off piste thrill through deep snow down to meet us on the Alpi di Siusi.
Our last turns of the week take us to yet another welcoming mountain bar where, over glasses of wine, we can savor the sunset and make plans for the next ski adventure! Overnight in the same hotel as the first night.
