The most popular tour in the Lagorai mountains! Recommended especially after snowfall.
In dangerous conditions you can reach the top by making a wide turn westwards to the area “Buse dell’Oro”. From there on the beautiful upper slopes, moving left, you reach once more the former track and the summit.
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.
