Val Mesdi (2950m), Dolomites, Italy, every friday. Val de Mesdì is the most famous off-piste skiing all over the Dolomites, a great crossing on the Sella Group, away from downhill runs and lifts.Val Mesdi…… Wow!! What can we say about this one. Pretty bloody amazing to be honest. It has got to be an absolute classic in the Dolomites and definitely a jaw-dropper from start to finish. Thank God there were no flies around.It’s one of the many routes you can do after taking the lift up from Passo Pordoi and we cannot recommend it enough. Nothing extreme or nasty about it. The entrance to the valley might be a little on the steep side for some (probably high 30s in degrees but it soon mellows and leads you into the valley itself.)……sheer rock walls all around you. Really, really beautiful, almost to the point where the skiing becomes secondary….but only almost. A must for good and expert skiers!!

Detailed plan

It probably takes around an hour to get to the entrance from leaving the Passo Pordoi lift (didn’t pay much attention to the time so that could be a little off but close enough). Just like Canale Col Alton, you have to head for Piz Boe and then keep skinning looker’s left (looking from Passo Pordoi). It should be pretty obvious. When we were there, there was an obvious skin track all the way across the base of Piz Boe which leads you to the entrance of the couloir. If you end up at the Boe refugio (which was closed when we were there), then you’ve gone the right way.You’ll know when you start to approach the exit, as the descent starts to get narrow. Head skier’s right and follow the tracks down or mogul field as it was in our case. You’ll come out onto a track with just enough gradient to get you back onto the slopes in Colfosco.
