The great glaciers that tower above the enormous expanses of the nature parks of Adamello Brenta and Stelvio are the apotheosis of spring ski-mountaineering in Trentino. Penetrate this world on a journey of discovery and climb to the top of the Presanella at 3556 m wearing your skis at your feet. This outing high up in the mountains requires both physical fitness and mountaineering skills. The Rifugio Stavel F. Denza is found at 2298 m, at the foot of the northern wall above the Val di Sole and makes the adventure easier since it is open on weekends in the spring. Furthermore, you will find an Alpine guide there who can help you with useful tips on your excursion.
The climb has been broken down into two days and begins in Stavel, a small town at the foot of the northern section of the Presanella that stands at an altitude of 1234 m.
On the first day, climb up to the refuge, following the summer itinerary. Here, you can either wear your skis or carry them, based on how much snow there is. The climb up to the refuge is both steep and challenging at the beginning, but becomes easier towards the end, when the refuge suddenly appears in front of you with its small, traditional church and the imposing icy wall of the Presanella to act as its glittering frame.
You need to set out early on the second day to reach and pass Vedretta della Presanella. From here, make your way around Cima Vermiglio to reach Sella Freshfield. At this point, you will have reached 3375 m. Take care when crossing the top part of Vedretta di Nardis and move towards the northeast until you reach the legendary peak of Presanella just 200 m further up.
The difficulty of this outing is often dictated by the conditions of the snow. Sometimes, you can climb almost all the way to the peak wearing your skis on your feet. At other times instead, the last section must be prudently climbed using a rope, ice-axe and crampons.
