Panoramic itinerary that develops on wide, homogeneous and never extreme slopes. An easy tour, both uphill and downhill, also suitable for less experienced ski mountaineers. The panorama is very impressive, both along the route and from the summit.

Tour almost always safe, most rewarding earlier in the season, after a snowfall.

Safety information

Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche bulletin ( 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.



  1. Prepare your itinerary beforehand
  2. Choose an itinerary that suits your physical abilities
  3. Choose suitable clothes and equipment
  4. Check the weather forecast
  5. Hiking by yourself is more risky; if this is the case, take a mobile phone with you
  6. Leave information about your itinerary and your expected return time
  7. If you are not sure about your itinerary, contact an Alpine Guide
  8. Pay attention to signposts and directions that you find along your way
  9. Do not hesitate in going back if you feel too tired
  10. In case of emergency call 112

Juribrutto Peak

Turn-by-turn directions

Ascent: from Malga Vallazza head up left (East) through sparse woodland. After a long northbound traverse you reach the tree line and the base of a large, steep slope. Climb up to the area “Lastei of Juribrutto”. It’s the only stretch where care is needed for potential of avalanche, after a heavy snowfall or wind-affected snow accumulations.Now, the area is open and wide, with steeper and more gentle slopes. Keep the direction along the right mountain ridge, or follow the large central channel which lead to the summit. 

Descent: by the same route

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.
