How to arrive
Take the SS239 main road to Madonna di Campiglio; entering the town from the south (Val Rendena). Then follow the signs to Vallesinella, Piazza Palù and Spinale. At the roundabout, before the small lake of Campiglio, turn right and park in the large car park on your right, about 200m after the roundabout.
This snowshoe tour, which goes up to Malga Fevri and then on to Monte Spinale, is one of the most well-known routes in Val Rendena. Easy and equipped with ski lift facilities for Monte Spinale, which make the outbound or return trip easier, this route is one of the most popular, also due to the splendid views to be enjoyed at the top. The initial stretch of the tour goes past the ski slopes with their festive and fun atmosphere, which is soon replaced by a majestic environment and the more solitary and attractive atmosphere of Malga Fevri.
Madonna di Campiglio - Piazza Palù car park - Spinale (1506m); Malga Fevri (1958m).
At the car park in Piazza Palù, located to the south of Madonna di Campiglio, go along the asphalt road that is the initial stretch, passing by the area of the town between the car park and the location where the trail actually starts.
Go along Via Fevri, on the east side of the car park, to the end of the road, where a house stands close to the ski slope (from the east, you go northwards). Then pass through the tunnel of the Monte Spinale ski-lift facilities.
At the end of the road, there is path on the right through the wood. It goes straight on and joins up with the summer trail to Malga Fevri.
Once on the trail, turn right (it doubles back southwards) and go along the most challenging stretch of the entire tour due to a long steep slope. Go on as far as the place where it is crossed by the black ski run of Monte Spinale.
Carefully cross over the black ski run, and then go straight on in the same direction to the south and south-east. The trail goes into the wood and gradually takes you up to a higher altitude and a hairpin on the left. After a few hundred metres, you come out into the large clearings of Malga Fevri, now visible ahead to the east.
Go on as far as Malga Fevri (1958m).
The return route goes back down the same way.
Well-trained hikers can continue climbing a further 150m in height, between the summit of Monte Spinale, visible to the north-east, and then descend using the ski-lift facilities.
This tour is included in the circuit of other snowshoe tours. It is well-groomed and marked with green and orange poles by the Azienda di Promozione del Territorio (Territorial Marketing Company) of Madonna di Campiglio.
You can ascend along the trail as described or use the ski-lift facilities of Monte Spinale, also for the descent, getting a "lift" by cable car. For those who go up the valley and do not wish to return on snowshoes, the ski lift facilities can be a valid alternative to the less interesting descent on foot.
