This guide book brings together a selection of ski mountaineering itineraries in the most important areas of the central and northern Dolomites, spacing from the San Pellegrino Pass to Lake Braies and from the Odle mountains to Antelao. It offers a wide variety of itineraries which are very different from each other due to their difficulty and surrounding environment, but all remaining within the most famous areas of these mountains.
The characteristic of this book is to describe classic and well known itineraries while offering alternative solutions, unknown descents or real traverses which allow ski mountaineers to appreciate, under a different guise, even the busiest summits. As well as describing trips for those who enjoy classic ski mountaineering and for those who have just started this activity, we have also included many high level itineraries aimed at ski mountaineers with a passion for steep skiing.
In the chapters on the various mountain groups a few two or three day traverses have been summarized describing the most striking areas, drawing attention to this type of ski mountaineering experience to which the Dolomites lends itself admirably. A schematic map has been added to all the itineraries highlighting the total length of the trip, with a table summarizing its technical characteristics and difficulties. Many action-packed photos and images showing the uphill and downhill tracks enrich this publication and provide the reader with extra information.
