/ Ski mountaineering dolomites
also does anyone have a copy of "freeride in dolomiti" they would like to sell.
There have been a plethora of new guides over our way the last few years.
You want to hear from Kean, the Powder Beast of Montebelluno
for information. (Hope you don't mind being referenced, mate).
If you are really stuck I will try to think of something intelligent to say, but at end of day everything depends on conditions, so you might consider contacting him or at worst me very near the time.
This is link with some stuff. But I imagine you've already seen it, although my suggestions are quite steep.
Some easy stuff:
Forca Rossa from Passo San Pellegrino
Forcella della Neve from Lago Misurina
Mondeval from Passo Giau
Monte Sief from Castello Andraz
Depends a lot on prevailing conditions, when you come, where you're based etc...
A car is pretty much essential...
If you fancy grappling with Italian, have a look at this website, which is pretty much the main forum for Northeast Italy ski mountaineering.
Search criteria for most of Dolomites:
"Difficoltà" Sciatore medio (easy)
I only just bought my copy a couple of weeks at a shop in France, so I feel it's a little early for me to sell it.
But maybe this guy will sell you one of his:
From the same start there is Forca Rossa, which heads up to a pass on Pelmo. This is quite steep at the top and can have avalanche risk.
All these are very well-frequented classics.
Excellent touring conditions now, with a lot of snow above 1600m
The Val Mesdi is one of the classics, easy but often busy.
The 'Keyhole' off Punta Anna near Cortina is really worth a look as well.
To many to choose from!
I would of course be happy to pay for postage and include enough for a couple of beers on its return.
