Mountain range: Marmolada - Ombrettola
Starting point: Passo San Pellegrino (1907m) - Moena di Fassa
Total distance: km
Exposure: mainly south, south-east

How to arrive
Take the SS48 main road along Valle di Fiemme - Fassa as far as Moena. Then take the SS346 main road and follow the signs to Passo San Pellegrino. Park your car at the pass, at a height of 1907m (various parking areas).

Introduction
This easy snowshoe tour extends across a large area of the Dolomites at the foot of the extremely beautiful peaks of the Marmolada - Ombrettola range, such as Cime Ciadine and Punta dell'Uomo. The walk follows an almost flat, well-groomed trail as far as popular Fuchiade with its characteristic wooden buildings. Here you can stop at one of the attractive bar-restaurants and enjoy beautiful views. The return route follows the same trail back. However, the tour can be extended as far as Forca Rossa, taking a much longer and technically more difficult route, which is only recommended for trained and experienced hikers (see alternative route 1), and is not suitable for families or for those who want to go on an easy walk. From Località Fuchiade, you can also return along Valle del Rio di Zigole, following an easy circuit (see alternative route no. 2).

Locations
Passo San Pellegrino (1907m), Rifugio Fuchiade (1982m) and back.

Itinerary
From Passo San Pellegrino take the narrow, snow-covered and well-groomed road, following the signs to Rifugio Fuchiade. Continue along the long yet attractive trail, also used by snowmobiles and horse-drawn sleighs, as far as Località Fuchiade, a privileged scenic viewpoint overlooking Sass di Tasca, Punta Uomo, Punta Zigolè and Sasso di Valfredda.
Rifugio Fuchiade, where you can stop for a break, stands among this characteristic agglomeration of buildings. It is also open in winter.
The return route follows the same trail back.

Alternative routes
1. FORCA ROSSA (2490m) - difficult, for experts (only with self-rescue equipment: shovel and avalanche transceiver): from Località Fuchiade (1982m), go straight on (eastwards), taking a kind of semi-circular trail that goes up a slope, leading to an obvious ridge. When you get to the ridge, continue along the trail halfway up which heads in a north-east direction (summer trail no. 670).
Continue in this direction and pass a water basin. Then go across a series of boulder-littered plateaus (Pian della Schita - summer trail no. 694) connected and interspersed with short but sometimes challenging slopes that lead to clearly visible Passo della Forca Rossa (2490m), which is reached by going up the last but steeper slope that requires careful evaluation of the snowpack. From Forca Rossa, the return route goes back down the same way.

2. ALTERNATIVE RETURN ROUTE - easy
Instead of returning along the same trail, you can take a route back down along the right side of Valle del Rio di Zigole. From Località Fuchiade, descend southwards along an attractive well-groomed trail, which soon leads to a car park. Then take the path to the right as far as the provincial road that goes up to Passo San Pellegrino. When you get to the road, go down to the right along a usually well-groomed trail that returns to the pass alongside the asphalt road.

Notes
The route is very simple and safe as far as Località Fuchiade. If the alternative route is taken to Forca Rossa, you need to check the Avalanche Bulletin and the stability of the snowpack in the area, especially along the trail halfway up to Pian delle Schite, and along the last slope to Forca Rossa.
Along the alternative return route (no. 2), the trail that returns to Passo San Pellegrino is not always well-groomed; therefore it is less rewarding than the outward-bound route.
