Ski tours with views of the Langkofel mountain

Ski tours with views of the Langkofel mountain

There is an abundance of ski tours through the Dolomites. The routes are not groomed, so skiers embark on them at their own risk. Once the risks have been weighed up, the daring will be mesmerised by spectacular panoramic vistas and descents through challenging hills, narrow gorges and steep ridges. We recommend going with a mountain guide.
