Is an on-piste ski safari an oxymoron? We don’t think so! In the Dolomites, it is possible for on-piste skiers to ski from hut-to-hut – entirely on groomed, lift-served runs! On our On-Piste Hut-to-Hut Ski Adventure, you’ll enjoy a ski safari on the Dolomiti Superski network of 12 resorts, with over 5,000 vertical feet of skiable terrain! We’ll ski from valley to valley each day, traveling on groomed on-piste slopes throughout, and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere of a different Refugio or hotel each night.

This tour also provides you with the opportunity to explore the Ladin valleys of the Dolomites and their people, discover the traditions and history of these places that integrates the Ladin, Italian, and Austrian cultures, and explore the excellent cuisine! Not only will you enjoy incredible Italian resort skiing, but you’ll discover the breathtaking beauty of the Dolomites, and see so much more than if you stayed at a resort at the base of the mountain. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy on-piste resort skiing!

Note: This itinerary is designed for on-piste skiing. If you are interested in an off-piste lift-service ski safari, we invite you to check out our other ski safaris which range from on- and off-piste to lift-service backcountry skiing. We’d also be more than happy to customize this itinerary for you.
