Activity description

Explore the ski domain of Madonna di Campiglio in the Brenta Dolomites with an experienced mountain guide, a natural playground for powder lovers: numerous backcountry routes are awaiting you to be discovered!

Madonna di Campiglio is the perfect spot to access the skiable domain of the Brenta Dolomites which connects the town of Campiglio, Pinzolo and Val Rendena. These breathtaking mountains offer numerous freeride descents for any taste: gentle and sunny valleys, steep intimidating canyons and impervious mountain peaks! North exposed mountain faces exposed will be preferred in order to find the best powder around and for the ones that are keen to extra effort to reach remote spots with sealskin: the reward will be unique!

Jacopo is a passionate mountain guide that will accompany you during the day putting his experience and knowledge at your service, to guarantee your safety and fun! Spending a day with a mountain guide not only means learning new small techniques and secret spots, but also be sure to do the activity that best fits your level and goals.

What experience do I need? This could be your first backcountry snowboarding experience: being confident on groomed slopes and first freeride experiences are sufficient.

Jacopo will choose with you the best routes to fit your level and goals among a wide choice of routes near the ski slopes or further away. For routes far from the slopes it is required to have a good control of backcountry snowboarding techniques since slope can go up to 45°.
