My winter on the road. Chamonix, ski touring to Col d’Argentiere and Aiguilles Rouges ski traverse. Pointe Alphonse Favre and Aiguille du Belvedere.

It’s gonna be difficult to forget this winter season for people like me who live in the Dolomites and need the real snow to survive and feed his/her family, beside the fake snow on the slopes. Despite the last snowfall has pulled the morale of many people up, the general conditions in the Dolomites for skiing off-piste and ski touring are still difficult, and you…

Climbing the via ferrata on Piccolo Cir, skiing the Sellaronda, off-piste skiing on Pitztal Glacier and ski touring in Sankt Anton. All in the same week!

Who would have ever thought of a second year in a row without snow in the Dolomites in early February? Everything has been so unpredictable in these last winters, so the key word is definitely “being flexible.” Janet and Shel just came to the Dolomites for 4 days of off-piste skiing and ski touring, unfortunately we had to change our…

Off-piste skiing and ski touring in Sestriere and Monginevro.

Lots of snow finally arrived in the Northern Alps, in Abruzzo and all the way down to Mount Etna in Sicily. Unfortunately in the South of the Alps, including the Dolomites,it’s been still very cold and dry.

December, ski touring to the Col d’Argentière and climbing in the Dolomites. Diedro Dall’Oglio on Cima del Lago and Campanile di Val Montanaia normal route.

This has been the second december in a row without snow. Just a matter of bad luck? A cycle or is it been all because of the climate change? I think it’s a bit of everything. The high pressure is still strong in Europe and in the Alps, it’s been three weeks already with beautiful days from sunrise to sunset,…

Ski the Haute Route Chamonix-Zermatt via Verbier.

If you ask to somebody “Do you know the Haute Route?” everybody knows what you’re talking about. The Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt is by far the most famous ski touring trip in the world, it’s a hut-to-hut ski trip around the most amazing glaciers of the Western Alps. You start in the Mont Blanc massif and finish the ski…

Ski touring in Pitztal, Tirol. Wildspitze, 3772m.

It’s december already and the snow situation in the Dolomites reminds me a lot last year, only the high peaks painted in white have given a sort of winter look so far. The foehn wind from last week blew strongly in Marmolada, the only spot where it’s been possible to go ski touring, and the snowpack is not enjoyable anymore. Yesterday we…
