Rifugio Buffaure is the starting point for this panoramic walk that follows the narrow western ridge of the Sass D’Adam.

Author’s recommendation

If you are in good enough shape, don’t miss the opportunity to make the full crossing of the ridge on trail 613, all the way to Passo San Nicolò.

Safety information

Don’t walk this trail in case of fog or bad weather. The ridge is narrow, and it is best not to get lost on these steep slopes.

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.

Equipment

Hiking boots/shoes, windbreaker, a change of clothes. Telescopic hiking sticks are useful.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the mountain hut, you go to the skiing slope road, which leads to “Rifugio Baita Cuz”, following trail number 613 to Sass D’Adam. Beyond the mountain hut, you continue either on the road, which climbs quite steeply to Col del Valvacin, or along the track marked 613, which runs further to the right on the steep meadow. In any case, you reach the uphill station of the Buffaure -Colle de Valvacin ski lift at 2340 m asl.

You continue along trail 613, now walking on the path that follows the narrow grassy ridge.

With a final effort, you reach the Peak of Sass D’Adam, where you can enjoy a grand view of Val San Nicolò and the Fassa Dolomites, particularly the Marmolada.

To return, you follow the same route backwards.

Getting there

Road SS48 delle Dolomiti to Pozza di Fassa, where you take the road to Val San Nicolò (follow directions). On your way out of the town, you stop at the downhill station of the Pozza-Buffaure ski lift facilities, on the left hand side of the road. You reach Rifugio Buffaure by Cablecar.

Parking

Parking at the Pozza-Buffaure ski lift facility.
