Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche bulletin (www.meteotrentino.it or any other service that suits your needs) before departure and make sure you gather all possible information concerning current conditions by calling the Mountain Guides.
GPS routes are merely indicative of the more reasonable track but must not be followed blindly without first checking current slope and terrain conditions.

WAY UP Take the forest road behind the El Zirmo restaurant which, in constant ascent, connects Castelir to Malga Canvere. You move further and further away from the slopes through a wide forest with typical alpine huts. The slope is constant, but never particularly pronounced. Arriving at Malga Canvere, the forest thins out and the few pine trees embellish the view over the imposing Pale di San Martino and the Lagorai chain. The hut is not managed.
WAY DOWN From the huts, head left along the obvious snowy forest road that leads to the slopes of the Bellamonte - Alpe Lusia skiarea and descend along the slope keeping to the left.
Public-transport-friendlySki bus service from Predazzo to the Castelir ski area (Bellamonte).

For all ski-mountaineering activities, the proper apparel is strongly recommended. Skiers must bear in mind that temperatures can dip quickly and garments should also be suitable for snowy conditions (such as waterproof Gore-Tex jackets). Furthermore, gloves, cap, sun glasses and sun cream should also form part of every off-piste skier’s basic gear.
It’s COMPULSORY to carry with you an avalanche rescue kit consisting of avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel (this is also available for rent). In the case of hard snow cover or ice, ski crampons are recommended.
