ALBA DI CANAZEI - VAL CONTRIN - CONTRIN REFUGE
Excursions in the side valleys
Go to the cabin lift station at Alba (Dèlba) (1,517 m), and set off on path no. 602, that quite easily leads to the Baita Locia Contrin (1,736 m).After this the path becomes quite flat as you walk through a sparse wood and then the meadows of the upper valley. There are magnificent peaks all around: the Colac to the right, the Vernel and the Marmolada to the left, the Cime di Ombretta (Ombretta peaks) to the east. Cross the Ruf de Contrin stream and then climb up towards the Mèlga Cianci refuge and then go through the larch trees to the Contrin refuge (2,016 m; 2 hours).
