The Lavazè Plateau, in addition to the many kilometers of cross-country ski trails, offers various snowshoes routes. As soon as you take the road you will leave the vivacity of the skiers behind and you will immerse yourself in total silence. The path is very sunny, the lush forest that characterized this side of the mountain was razed to the ground in October 2018 by the storm Vaia.
The hut is closed, but nothing prevents you from sitting outside to observe the view and enjoy the warm rays of the sun.

Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche before departure and make sure you gather all possible information concerning current conditions from the local Mountain Guides. GPS tracks are merely indicative of the more standard routes but must not be followed blindly without first checking current slope and terrain conditions.
From Passo Lavazè, for about 350 meters, follow the road that leads to Passo Oclini. On the left there is a series of houses. The last one, on the façade, has a large eagle drawn; from there the path to Baita Val Lubie begins. You set off on a beautiful forest road that goes slightly uphill, then descends to the hut (the last 500 meters downhill are steeper). The damage caused by the Vaia storm (October 2018) is clearly visible along the route.
Return back along the same itinerary.
