Activity description

The Marmolada is one of the most renowned massifs of the Alps and is known as the Dolomites Queen for its impressive height of 3,343 metres!

Being able to ride off-piste on the highest peak of the Dolomites is an opportunity not to be missed! The ski school Dolomiti SkiRock gives you the chance to ski on the majestic Marmolada Glacier!

Among the backcountry skiing enthusiasts, the Marmolada is known as "Regina della Polvere" (Powder Queen), as its slopes covered with powder snow and more than 1,200-metre long are a true paradise for the lovers of this winter sport.

A Dolomiti SkiRock's Mountain Guide will take you to discover the amazing off-piste routes of the glacier. You'll live a thrilling moment skiing in complete safety on numerous different routes, where the most experienced skiers can get to an overall altitude difference of more than 5,500 metres (18,045ft)!

The half-day excursion starts from Cortina d'Ampezzo. You'll meet your instructor there and reach Arabba together by car in about 40 minutes.

By taking the ski lifts of Porta Vescovo, it's possible to reach quickly the pass ofForcella Padon, from where an off-piste skiing slope goes down to the mountain hut of Malga Ciapela, which is also the starting point of the Marmolada chairlift.

Along the glacier, around a breathtaking natural environment, there is plenty of possible itineraries to choose from. Your expert guide will show you the 3 best off-piste itineraries.

The excursion will finish with a narrow couloir that ends up in a wide but steep couloir. This last off-piste track is reachable within a 10-minute walk.
