Full description

Discover the most authentic side of the mountains, get away from the crowded slopes and completely immerse yourself in nature with aski mountaineering excursion in Madesimo.

With the assistance and support of an Alpine Guide, you'll tackle the best off-piste routes in the area, climbing to altitude with sealskins and then enjoying theadrenaline rush of a fantastic freeride descent.

You will penetrate into the woods and snow-covered slopes of the Spluga Valley, experiencing a real adventure in fresh snow, with full respect for the environment.

What we will do

We will meet the Alpine Guide at 8:30am in Lecco and drive to Madesimo (alternatively you can meet directly in Madesimo or take a shuttle bus at an extra cost of 10€). Before venturing out onto the snow, we will do an equipment check and a briefing on theuse of skins and the safety kit (probe, shovel and artva, obligatory for everyone).

Depending on our level of experience and the snow conditions, the mountain guide will select themost suitable itinerary from those in the Madesimo and Valle Spluga area. We will make the ascent with the aid of seal skins, discovering the true essence of the mountain, far from the confusion of the ski lifts and slopes.

Along the itinerary, the guide will provide us with tips and advice on how to tackle the mountain environment safely and how to lighten the effort on the ascent by using the right technique. There will be no lack of breaks to rest when necessary and admire the view.

If the route provides for it, we will be able to take a break at a refuge to have a hot drink and refresh ourselves, otherwise we will make do with a snack and a packed meal, like real adventurers! Once at the top, we will prepare for the most adrenalin-pumping part of the day, the freeride descent through forest gullies and pristine slopes.

In total, the activity will last about 8 hours and will end with the return to the initial meeting point.
