Weather in the Dolomites

The easiest time to walk in the Dolomites is between June 20th and September 20th as this is when it is most likely to be free of snow, the weather is at its best, the hotels, mountain refuges and restaurants are open and the ski lifts and public transport services are running. 

Dolomite summers are mild with average monthly maximum temperatures in July and August rarely much over 25°C (77°F) and averages of around 20°C (68°F) in June, September and October. All mountain regions get a fair amount of rain in summer and the Dolomites are no exception. June and September are the driest months.
