Activity description

Explore in the skiable domain of Madonna di Campiglio in the heart of the Brenta Dolomites during a ski touring day trip accompanied by certified local mountain guides! 

Ski touring is the best way to live the mountain to it s fullest during winter: you will be able to reach secret spots and regions in the back country surrounded by pure nature and muffled silence. Ski touring is accessible by anyone who feels comfortable on skis and has a spirit for adventure!  

The activity lasts half day, more than enough to get your legs burn and will be provided in small groups. Ski touring gear (skis, sealskins, artva, shovel, probe) will be provided by your mountain guides.  

This activity is particularly indicated for ski touring novices and beginners! The Alpine Guides of Madonna di Campiglio, the local office founded in 1911, have planned for you a schedule which includes both theory and practice: most of time you will learn by doing, the fastest and funniest way to learn a sport. A professional mountain guide will always keep you under watch, ensuring your safety and fun.  

What will you learn? You will learn how to use the ski touring equipment as sealskins, safety equipment (Artva, shovel, probe) and also learn about ski touring techniques and how to read snow and weather conditions in the mountains.
