    New world

The freeride classic par excellence

The descent over the "New World" is unparalleled in the Alps and is only suitable for ski experts with strong nerves. You will need to assess your skiing skills carefully, as the 45° gradient in the exposed terrain requires not only excellent but also safe skiing technique. The rock bar with the vertical abseil section gives the tour a special alpine touch. However, this passage is not a particular challenge for you with a ski guide, as you are lowered 40 m down the rope from a good belay station.
A descent across the "New World" is more dependent on the conditions than almost any other tour. It is therefore a good idea to plan a time slot with your ski guide for a successful descent.

4 days, 6 participants, one of the best freeride crossings of the Alps

Freeriding in the Dolomites and then also as a traverse? That sounds presumptuous. But thanks to the lifts and cable cars of Dolomiti Superski, this is one of the best high alpine ski crossings in the Alps. The ascents are surprisingly short and the descents long and exciting. You start with your guide directly at the foot of the Dolomite Matterhorn, the...

What an undertaking! We don't want to bring up Hannibal again, but crossing the Alps is and remains something very special. Especially on skis and when the ascents are limited. The maximum ascent per day is 2 hours, but this is definitely worth it in view of the descents. Right next to the Bavarian foothills of the Alps...
