STEP 2 (what do you need carry during the ski safari dolomites)
For a Ski Safari in the Dolomites you need a small 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 every day of the Ski Safary in the Dolomites. Don't carry heavy beauty cases, I-pads or PCs, heavy photo cameras and other big components......
This is the basic list for seven days Dolomites Ski Safari:
22.214.171.124.5. Complete clothing set for downhill ski (helmet obligatory)
6. From 20 to max 25 liters size backpack (easy to carry on chairlift)

13. Sportive pants or jeans
14.15.16. Your (or rental) ski equipment
STEP 3 (where do you rent the ski for the Dolomites Ski Safari)
If you are a exigent skier I suggest you to come with your complete personal equipments (ski, helmet, etc...).
In alternative a good solution is to come only with your ski boots and rent the ski at the day 1 by the "K&K Sport" of the Alpe di Siusi - Seiser Alm.
STEP 4 (how do you reserve the Dolomiti Super Ski ticket)
Reserve the Dolomiti Super Ski ticket for the number of the days by the online shop.

Remember this is a modular program of Ski Safari Dolomites: I can adapt this program at your expectations.
The complete Ski Safari in the Dolomites is 7 days, but is possible to organize shorter versions from 2 to 6 days.

Why you don't have the dinner and lunch included in the price?
The reason is easy! Many people are vegetarians, or (diametrically opposite) gourmet passionists.... Is better that you are free to set your prefered alimentation during the ski safari, day per day I can suggest you the best restaurants in base at your personal indication.
