In Val di Fassa winter is off-piste

Total fusion with the snow, weaving trails visible for several days along steep slopes, gutters and gullies to be ridden freely. That’s freeride, the last trend which is setting the most addicted skiers’ souls on fire. Val di Fassa, one of the most well-equipped ski resorts of the Dolomiti Superski area, doesn’t lack off-piste itineraries and freeride runs. You need to be prepared, follow the rules and properly know mountain winter conditions in order to carry out freeride without risks. For those who want to put themselves to the test, the Alpine guides and the ski schools of the valley organize lessons with instructors, to learn how to ski in fresh snow and the correct use of safety equipment.


Freeride and off-piste skiing

Freeride runs and itineraries in Val di Fassa

Here you’ll find a list of the most popular freeride slopes in Val di Fassa, in the Dolomites of Trentino. Val Lastìes, Val Mezdì, Forcella Pordoi and Marmolada are freeride runs for expert skiers only. They are neither maintained nor signposted, so you do them at your own risk. They must be done when the snow conditions are very good and you should always be accompanied by a ski instructor or a mountain guide. Special safety apparel is required (ARVA, shovel, probe).

Pordoi Pass - Freeride Val Lastėes

From Passo Pordoi, take the lift up to Sass Pordoi. From the top station of the cable car, go down to the saddle "Forcella Pordoi" and to the namesake refuge. Go on to the left and take the "Val Lastìes". On a long, circular track, with steep stretches that alternate with more moderate inclines, reach "Pian Schiavaneis" and "Pian Frataces" ("Lupo Bianco"). During the final part, it is important to stay on the left, beside the rocky wall.

Time: 2/3 hours
Uphill altitude: 2,950 m
Downhill altitude: 1,715 m
Altitude difference: 1,235 m
Difficulty: difficult

Pordoi Pass - Freeride Val Mezdė

From Pordoi Pass (Canazei), take the lift up to Sass Pordoi, the Terrace of the Dolomites. From the top station of the cable car, go down towards the saddle "Forcella Pordoi". Go on to the basement of the Piz Boè pyramid, to get to the Boè Refuge (closed in winter). Here starts the long descent along the "Val Mezdì", a canyon carved in the majestic rocks of Sella, with final arrival in Colfosco (Alta Badia).

Time: 3/4 hours
Uphill altitude: 2,950 m
Downhill altitude: 1,645 m
Altitude difference: 1,305 m
Difficulty: difficult

Freeride Pordoi fork

This is one of the most famous off-piste runs: from Pordoi Pass (Canazei), take the lift up to the Terrace of the Dolomites. From the uphill cable car station go to "Forcella Pordoi" and its namesake refuge, where the slope begins. After the steep, narrow slope there is a canyon which gets larger and larger, as you go down, and leads to the snow covered grassland of the pass.

Uphill altitude: 2,950 m
Downhill altitude: 2,239 m
Altitude difference: 711 m
Difficulty: medium

Marmolada - Freeride on the glacier

To sign up the snows of the Marmolada is every freeriders’ dream. From Pian dei Fiacconi (carry skins and crampons with you) go up to Punta Penìa, the highest peak in the Dolomites. The descent along the north face, towards the Fedaia dike, is spectacular but requires training and caution as there are ice sheets and cliff edges along the way.

Uphill altitude: 3,342 m
Downhill altitude: 2,060 m
Altitude difference: 1,282
Difficult; you are strongly recommended to set off with a guide

The slope can be easily reached by the Col Margherita cable car (San Pellegrino Pass).
