The bucolic winter environment of Passo Oclini will remain in your memory for a long time. In its smallness, this place satisfies several interests; in fact here you can practice both downhill skiing and cross-country skiing. Families with children find space to have fun with the sled or to play in the snow. The flat and then slightly downhill walk leads to the Gurndin hut. Continuing downhill you reach the Isi hut. From here a path leads back to the starting point.
If you are at Passo Oclini in the late afternoon, we advise you to wait for the sunset to admire the Enrosadira on the Latemar and on the Catinaccio.
Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. It may happen that the path is not clear form snow. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
From Passo Oclini parking take the flat road for 45 minutes to Gurndin hut (malga). Continue along the road following signposts for the Isi Hütte hut. To return to the parking follow indications for the Passo Oclini along a trail leading through the snowy meadows.
