Back-country skiing • Val di Sole
If the initial stretch of forest road (about 3 kilometres) appears to be a bit boring, the wide sunny slopes that you encounter when you get to Baita Pozze (altitude 2100m) are really ideal terrain for ski-mountaineering, offering you the opportunity to get to various peaks. The highest of these is Cima Vegaia, which lends its name to the entire Vegaia-Tremenesca subgroup of mountains.

Safety informationWatch out for eventual snowdrifts at the sides of the ridge that leads to the forepeak.
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.
Tips, hints and linksSince the slopes are fully exposed to the south, you should carefully choose the period and departure times. It is ideal when there is firm spring snow (firn).
Getting thereGo up the Val di Sole, after the village of Mezzana, where you will see a fork in the road on the right to the villages of Ortisè and Menas. When you get to Ortisè, go to the upper part of the village, as far as a hairpin bend, beyond which the road is usually not cleared of snow (altitude 1525m).
