The resort town of Canazei in the Dolomite Mountains is the kind of place that caters to those with a taste for adventure. A hotspot for snowboard, rock climbing, and mountaineering, Canazei is also an excellent place to try the newest trend in skiing: freeriding.
In freeride skiing, there are no pistes, no snow cannons, and no set course – just fresh powder and natural, ungroomed slopes. The sport emphasises fast, agressive technique and requires a thorough knowledge of the mountain geography.
Canazei, located in the Val di Fassa, has plenty of options for freeride runs and off-piste itineraries. If you’re bored of traditional piste skiing and want something a little edgier, try out the freeriding sites around the slope and gullies of Canazei. Shuttle Direct is now offering private transfers straight to Canazei from Venice Marco Polo from £226, so you can start your adventure as soon as your plane touches down!
