50 winter routes

A guidebook to winter in the Dolomites, featuring 50 ski touring and snowshoeing routes in the Italian mountain range. The graded routes, all of which take less than a day to complete, commence from the bases of Cortina, Arabba, Val di Zoldo, San Martino and San Vigilio, taking in stunning scenery, quaint villages and enchanting mountain vistas.

Seasons
Winter - during the lift season (from early December until mid April) as this is when the majority of the public services and hotels are open.

Centres
San Martino, Badia, San Vigilio, Corvara, Colfosco, Selva di Val Gardena, Santa Cristina, Ortisei, La Villa, San Cassiano, Cortina, Misurina, Selva di Cadore, Canazei, Arabba, Campitello, Pozza, Vigo di Fassa.

Difficulty
Good navigational and mountain skills are essential for all routes as the summer tracks are covered in snow. The ski tours require backcountry / mountaineering experience, particularly for assessing the avalanche risk. These will be graded using the 'Volo' or 'Toponeige' scale.

Must See
​One of the most beautiful and accessible mountains ranges in the world. The Sella Ronda circuit is a must for piste skiers, while towns such as Cortina d'Ampezzo offer a unique blend of Italian and Tyrolean culture, architecture, history and food. Explore backcountry with views of the Tre Cime (one of the 6 great Alpine North Faces), the Marmolada (the highest peak in the Dolomites), the spires of Sassolungo.
