Freeriding in the Dolomites gathers together a variety of the most interesting itineraries in the central-eastern Dolomites, in an area which extends from Marmolada to the valleys around Sella, up to Passo Falzarego and to the Ampezzo basin.
This is the third edition of Freeriding in the Dolomites: the first was in 2004 and the second in 2009. The previous editions were appreciated for the precision of their descriptions, but within a few years there have been many changes, just think of all the new lifts as well as those which are no longer operating.Other changes in the territory have altered the ascent and descent lines of several itineraries.
In this new book all the previously described itineraries have been updated with the addition of new photos and new variants. A few unpublished itineraries have been added, as well as an entire chapter dedicated to the freeride traverse of the Dolomites from San Martino di Castrozza to Cortina d’Ampezzo; an itinerant week, from mountain hut to mountain hut with short ascents and many fascinating descents.
Francesco Tremolada. Born in Padua in 1970, lives in Corvara, Badia where he is a full-time Mountain Guide, modern and proactive in the Alta Badia School of Alpinism.
His activity has been focused for some time mainly on skiing activities, from freeriding to ski mountaineering, which has allowed him to gain great experience in the mountains during winter, above all in the Dolomites, where he has repeated several lines and high level first steep-skiing descents, and more generally in the Alps.
His knowledge of the areas, together with his passion for photography, have made him a much appreciated author of guidebooks, both for his photos and the originality of his descriptions.
Freeriding in the Dolomites, now in its third edition, has established a reference for all off-piste skiing enthusiasts.
