Need advice on ski tour to Dolomites

My wife and I are interested in a group ski tour of the dolomites where we would stay at a different location every night. Do you have any recommendations as to reasonably-priced tour companies? We can leave anytime between now and April... what would be the best time of year for ski conditions and especially weather? Also, we are semi-expert skiers and I'm wondering if a group tour would involve a lot of waiting / slow skiing / unchallenging terrain? We are looking for some adventure, hence the idea of ski touring/ trekking, instead of simply skiing.

What is a semi-expert.

Assume you mean "ski touring" and not a ski tour. A ski tour could be just skiing on piste seeing various historic sights - e.g. the World War 1 ski tour in Alta Badia






Have you done ski-touring before - that is proper ski-touring with touringskis, boots, bindings, skins, walking up the mountains on touring skis etc

If doing "skitouring" then you shouldn't have to wait/slow skiers because you should all be good off-piste skiers.

You should be physically fit

Are you expecting to carry all your own luggage in a rucksack stopping over in mountain huts or do you see this as staying in a hotel then joining a skitouring group for a day.

Obviously does depend on snow conditions but many people like skitouring around March.

Good place to start is on the Alpe di Siusi. Accessable from Ortisei/St Ulrich or Siusi/Seis itself. YOu could get a guide as a taster


If wishing to be on some organised trip then there are companies out there.

Not personal recommendations but as examples. The following appears to bbe offering proper "skitouring"


HOWEVER NOTE their experience level "Intermediate" relates to an "Intermediate off-piste skier" - put mouse over the "Skill level" and have a read. Also read "Stamina level" as this relates to climbs using "skins".
