STEP 2 (what do you need carry during the ski safari)
For a Ski Safari in the Dolomites you need a little backpack (20/25 liters) with the essential components that you can see in the photo “CHECK THIS LIST!”. It's sure a minimal list.... but remember that we carry this back pack for all days of the Ski Safary in the Dolomites. Don't carry heavy beauty cases, I-pads or PCs, heavy photo cameras and other components......

Reserve the Dolomiti Super Ski ticket for the number of the days by the online shop.
