DAY 1Arrival during the afternoon to the mythical town of Solda / Sulden am Ortler. On the way, there is a possibility to stop in the toll-free mountain village of Samnaun, where petrol, alcohol, tobacco, and perfumes are especially cheap. We'll meet in the bar of hotel Nives and share some pizzas and beers with the powder hunter's excitement in the air.
DAY 2After a hearty breakfast early in the morning we will meet our guides at the main gondola and get some insights about the snow conditions and route plans. Most likely we'll start skiing with a top to bottom off-piste on the classic route, during which the guides can measure the skiing/snowboarding levels of the team. Based on that we form smaller groups and continue scoring the powder turns and couloirs. The evening starts in the lobby of the Parc hotel where we share our knowledge of avalanche safety followed by a nice welcome dinner in the amazing Michelin recommended family restaurant of the hotel.
DAY 3Freeride as much as we can, the groups and exact routes will be decided by Olaf, the leader of the local mountain rescue team. After spending a great day off-piste, everybody will try their avalanche transceivers and probes on the field of the avalanche safety center. After this useful game, we'll have dinner in the 100-year-old Schaubachhütte, before skiing down with headlamps in the dark from nearly 3000 meters.
DAY 4Usually the longest and most complex freeride tour starts with some climbing on the glacier if the weather allows us. After this exhilarating experience, we chill out in the amazing wellness center of the most elegant hotel in the town, then we celebrate with a farewell dinner with beloved Italian cuisine in the family restaurant again.
DAY 5After breakfast, everybody can enjoy a more relaxed day at their own pace on the already well-known tracks before heading home with aching legs, sun-kissed cheeks and everlasting memories.
Our office will get in touch with you soon.
