Introduction
If you want to try out one of the most well-known routes in Valle del Chiese, then Cima Pissola from Boniprati is a must. Even before the snow has reached the ground, ski mountaineers are out having the time of their life on this unrivalled slope and, as a result, far too many ski mountaineers flock to this destination. Some Sundays there are over one hundred people covering the route. The even, continuous slopes, the grassy terrain and ease of access make Cima Pissola the ideal place for practising ski mountaineering. Absolutely fantastic descents on powder or fresh snow.

Locations
Boniprati (1172m), Baita (1395m), Malga Table (1641m), Cima Pissola (2063m).

Itinerary

Cross the field at the back of the Boniprati restaurant and ascend westwards until just before a hairpin bend to the left of a forest road; the wood at the top of the field starts here.
Pass to the right of the hairpin bend and climb up along a sort of corridor in the woodland (tracks are often already laid out).
After this first stretch of wood there is a sequence of fields leading up to a forest road (wide open field with mountain hut on the left - 1395m). On the right there is a sign for an agritur.
Cross over the road and carry on in the same direction.
The stretch of open field narrows until it ends "against" a patch of woodland. Bear left (south) and an open corridor easily brings you out into an open field.
Here bear right and start climbing again westwards along the large open field. This brings you to Malga Table (1641m).
Pass round the back of the barn and continue climbing westwards. Follow a wide natural corridor which narrows at the top and enables you to reach the ridge (altitude around 1885m) coming up from the south-east. This bends left and then westwards, and ends at the summit.
Follow the last stretch of slope up until it becomes a ridge running westwards towards the cross that is visible on the summit.
Most ski mountaineers stop at this point. For those who want to reach the summit, proceed westwards, following a few ascents and descents as far as the cross, which can easily be made out on Cima Pissola (2063m).
The descent is along the same route.
