The Monte Sole peak is ideal for winter ascents and to enjoy the snow overlooking the splendid Val di Rabbi.

Author’s recommendation

The Monte Sole farmhouse also offers a limited number of rooms for those who wish to stay the night… and a sauna!

Safety information

Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche bulletin (www.meteotrentino.it or any other service that suits your needs) before departure and make sure you gather all possible information concerning current conditions at the Mountain Guides’ office. (http://www.guidealpinevaldisole.it).

GPS tracks are merely indicative of the more standard routes but must not be followed blindly without first checking current slope and terrain conditions.

Equipment

For all ski-mountaineering activities, the proper apparel is strongly recommended. Skiers must bear in mind that temperatures can dip quickly and garments should also be suitable for snowy conditions (such as waterproof Gore-Tex jackets). Furthermore, gloves, cap, sun glasses and sun cream should also form part of every off-piste skier’s basic gear.

It’s also important to bear in mind that tight fitting or insufficiently waterproof ski boots can cause frostbite.

It’s also COMPULSARY to carry with you an avalanche rescue kit consisting of avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel (this is also available for rent).

A suitable helmet and other safety equipment are also strongly recommended (avalanche airbags etc.).

In the case of hard snow cover or ice, ski crampons are recommended.

Turn-by-turn directions

After leaving the hamlet of Rabbi Fonti, take the forest road on your left that leads up into the Cercen valley. You’ll cross a first bridge at an elevation of 1,485 metres and reach another in the Fontanon locality. From here the road leads over to the other side of the mountain and continues in a northerly direction before turning sharply towards the lower Malga Sole farmhouse at an altitude of 1,759 metres. Not far beyond the farmhouse it’s possible to continue freely up through sparse woodland and reach the upper Malga Sole farmstead at 2,048 metres. From here, across open terrain, it’s possible to reach the peak of Monte Sole.
