Ski-mountaineering - Trento Monte Bondone
One of the most renowned tours near Trento is the Tre Cime Monte Bondone route
Where the groomed ski-tracks served by ski-lifts end, the great adventure called ski-mountaineering starts. One of the most renowned tours near Trento is the Tre Cime Monte Bondone route, which heads towards Bocca di Vaiola from Piana delle Viote, close to the cross-country trails.
Leaving the ski-tracks behind, the route climbs up the ridge that separates Val d´Eva from Val del Merlo. It heads South towards Monte Cornetto, which is reached after ascending steep segments. The route then turns back to the overhang base and, circumnavigating it from the North, reaches Doss d'Abramo - to be climbed using metal ropes after leaving the skis behind. Skiers can reach Cima Verde from the North or South-East, according to weather conditions.
The tour takes about 4 hours, with a 1,000 m climb. Ski-mountaineering is for everyone, provided they are physically well-trained, fitted with suitable equipment and fairly expert. Otherwise, they should hire an Alpine guide.
