Queen of Dolomites classical Map

One of the most famous ski tour of the dolomites. Perfect for early or late season tours thanks to the high altitude. Despite the glacier kit is not needed for the climb, be very careful on the way down, crevasses are still there and require a certain amount of snow for being safe. Do not try the way down on the glacier if not sure about the location of crevasses or without a mountain guide. The descent on the skin track is safe and free from crevasses.
