Many people describe the Val di Mezdì as the Vallée Blanche, i.e. White Valley, of the Dolomites. But instead of skiing down the wide glacier in the French Alps we descend along a spectacular Dolomitic valley, among 500 meters tall rocky walls overlooking on both sides a deep 12 kilometers valley. The descent of Val di Mezdì cuts the Sella mountain South to North.
Due to its beauty and short distance, Val di Mezdì is a very popular off-piste itinerary. At times it almost becomes a groomed trail. Being a freeride run anyway, unchecked and unmonitored, it needs to be tackled carefully, above all in case of fog or poor visibility.
