Ski-touring “Intermediate”

When the mountain is dressed in white and enveloped in fascinating silence and breathtaking views, the best way to enter this paradise is to push your skis, at a slow and rhythmic pace, on the white mantle. The ascent flows pleasantly, letting yourself be carried away by the power of the views that follow one another; leaving the line of your curves on the descent is the icing on the cake.

This page presents proposals for “intermediate” backcountry ski touring. These itineraries are characterised by a difference in altitude of between 800 and 1200 metres and moderate technical difficulties, both uphill and downhill. Our aim, therefore, is to accompany you on these trips and ensure that you have fun while discovering breathtaking views and descents on good snow, perhaps with some more challenging sections.

A list of "intermediate" tours.

PASSO SAN PELLEGRINO – FALCADE

PASSO DELLE CIRELLE – CIMA CADINE (2885 metres).

The climb takes place along the sunny slopes of the south side of the S. Pellegrino pass. We easily climb up to the Passo delle Cirelle, which is a popular route, then we continue with increasing difficulty towards this beautiful and panoramic peak, from which an exciting descent awaits us.

DIFFICULTY: BSA, S3

GAP: ascent, descent 1050 metres.

MARMOLADA 

FORCELLA MARMOLADA – TRAVERSE (2896 metres)

This wonderful traverse combines the majestic environment of the Marmolada glacier with a sunny descent to Val Contrin. The crossing of the pass requires some mountaineering familiarity and often a small rope descent is necessary. The return journey is by taxi or public transport.

DIFFICULTY: BSA, S3

GAP: ascent 400 metres descent 1200 metres.

FASSA VALLEY – POZZA DI FASSA

SASSO DELLE 11 (2551 metres)

This excursion takes us to the top of one of the most panoramic peaks in the Val di Fassa. Fortunately, the terrain is never difficult up to the highest point and the slopes are ideal for skitouring. This makes it a highly recommended excursion throughout the winter.

DIFFICULTY: MSA, S2

GAP: ascent and descent 1150 metres.

VAL BADIA – VAL GARDENA

SAS CIAMPAC (2667 metres)

The itinerary that we propose includes an ascent in a very varied and sunny environment, with a descent that alternates between stretches of pure enthusiasm on almost always excellent snow, and stretches where it is not easy to guess the right passage. Finally we enter the spectacular Vallunga valley which takes us to Selva di Val Gardena. The return to Colfosco is by lift.

DIFFICULTY: BS, S3

GAP: ascent 700 metres, descent 1050 metres.

VAL GARDENA – SELVA DI VAL GARDENA

COL TORONN (2655 metres).

This itinerary climbs up the beautiful and wide Val Chedul to a pass, after which the excursion continues without great difficulty to the splendid summit.

DIFFICULTY: BS, S2

GAP: ascent and descent 1050 metres.

CORTINA D’AMPEZZO – CRODA ROSSA

FORCELLA COLFIEDO, traverse (2721 metres)

This climb takes us through a long, relaxing stretch of woodland, before we emerge, as if by magic, into a high mountain environment. Surrounded by high walls, we zip along until we reach the pass. From here an incredible descent on the opposite side will take us back to the valley.

DIFFICULTY: BS, S3

GAP: ascent and descent 1200 metres.

FALCADE – VALLES PASS

MULAZ TRAVERSE (2906 metres).

A long itinerary which, however, if tackled in the right moment, will turn into a long and memorable descent to the village of Falcade. In fact, this traverse involves climbing to the summit from Passo Valles or Passo Rolle. The greatest difficulties, though never excessive, are found in the last few metres before touching this fascinating summit. Once down in Falcade, we return to the car park by taxi.

DIFFICULTY: BSA, S2

GAP: ascent 1250, descent 1812 metres.

MARMOLADA – SOTTOGUDA

MOUNT PEZZA

This beautiful and isolated peak is a typically winter excursion. Gentle slopes take us up to Forcella Pianezze, from which the final slope stands out with its southern exposure, offering us snow that is usually firm. The beautiful final ridge also gives us intense emotions.

DIFFICULTY: MSA, S3

GAP: ascent and descent 950 metres.
