Winter hut tour in the Dolomites?

We are interested in doing a 2-3 day winter hiking tour in the Dolomites (snow shoes, no skis), preferably with some overnight stays in huts. Does anybody have good tips for such a tour, taking into account huts and avalanche dangers? I found that many of the huts are private and don't have winter rooms ..

Any information is very welcome!
