Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Stoeckli Nella 88 - will it be good for Dolomiti slopes?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hello everyone,

We are going to Dolomiti (Ortisei) to ski for the first time. We live in California and usually ski in Tahoe or Mammoth - allmountain piste with soft natural snow. I have a pair of Stoeckli Nella 88, which are absolutely perfect for ski conditions there, and I can't imagine any other skis being as good for me.

I don't see anything similar in Ortisei ski rentals. If they have Stoeckli, all the models are variations of Stoeckli Laser, which seem to be for piste, much more narrow, and the ski marked as "lady" are much shorter than what I have (mine are 168cm). Does it mean that the snow in Dolomiti is very different? More icy and hard? Does it mean that bringing my skis with me will be not just a hassle but a waste of effort as they are not really a good fit for Dolomiti slopes?

I appreciate any advice.

Thank you!

The Italians like skinny skis. But surely you’ll find something similar to your 88’s in the All Mountain category. But anyway your skis will be fine for the Dolomites and who wouldn’t want to ski on Stocklis!
