Introduction:
The ascent to Cornetto di Folgaria, one of the most classic routes in southern Trentino, is even and continuous, ideal also for less-experienced ski mountaineers. The route wends its way mainly through open country and the top part generally follows ski slopes that are no longer in use. The summit is extremely panoramic and the descent exhilarating, especially after recent snowfalls. The route is safe and usually feasible even when it is snowing. Remember however to carefully evaluate the snow conditions and consult the avalanche bulletin.

Locations:
Costa di Folgaria (1266m); Ex Pista Cima 3; Cornetto di Folgaria (2060m) and back

Itinerary:
Ascent:
Go round the back of the "pizzeria" on foot to the start of the old "Cima 3 (Cornetto)" ski run. Climb the ski run as far as the old ski lift middle station (1550m approx.).
From here climb back up towards the ridge on the right where the old ski lifts used to be. When you reach the start of the wood (around 1700m), continue leftwards diagonally tracing the summer route across the scrubland.
This will take you up to the old "Cima 3" ski run. Carry straight on up to the start of the piste. Now bear left slightly diagonally up to an altitude of about 2000m and then carry on along the ridge to the clearly visible summit of Cornetto. Pay particular attention to snow drifts along the last stretch.
Descent:
Follow the ascent route.

Notes
Always consult the avalanche bulletin carefully and evaluate the conditions of the snow on arrival.
