Rifugio Maria al Sass Pordoi is located on top of Sass Pordoi, at an elevation of 2950 m. It is comfortable to reach by the cablecar which starts at Passo Pordoi, or with a nice walk that makes its way through the Dolomitic pinnacles of the massif.

Author’s recommendation

Don’t miss the opportunity to go as far as Rifugio Boè. The walk takes place in a majestic Dolomitic context.

Safety information

In the presence of snow, which is not infrequent in the beginning of the summer season, it is necessary to pay significant attention to the final section of the channel that leads to the Forcella. Here, the track develops on a significant slope, and several passages can become dangerous.

 

1) Prepare your itinerary

2) Choose a route that is suitable for your skill level

3) Choose suitable equipment and gear

4) Consult the snow/weather bulletins

5) Heading out on your own is more risky

6) Leave information on your itinerary and on the approximate time you expect to return

7) Do not hesitate to seek the support of a professional

8) Pay attention to the information and signs that you find along the trail

9) Do not hesitate to follow your steps backwards

10) In case of an accident, sound the alarm by calling the emergency number 112.

 

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Equipment

Hiking boots/shoes, windbreaker, a change of clothes. Telescopic hiking sticks are useful.

Turn-by-turn directions

You start near the monument dedicated to Fausto Coppi, on Passo Pordoi, where you start trail no. 627. After an initial section made easier by the presence of steps, you walk on terrain that is almost flat, to the bottom of a scree. Here the slope becomes quite steep.

You continue to follow trail 627, which runs centrally on the scree, and you avoid following the tracks that run towards the face, and are used by mountaineers to reach the beginning of climbing routes.

You follow the indications marked on boulders and, at about 2580 m asl, you ignore a turn-off on your right that leads to the Cesare Piazzetta via ferrata - trail 626.

In this way, you reach the last part of the trail, where you follow a typical winding path, which is clearly visible even from the valley, gaining elevation with a series of steep but regular hairpin bends.

In the presence of snow, which is frequent at the beginning of the season owing to the high elevation, it is necessary to pay significant attention to the final section of the channel leading to the Forcella since the trail is on a steep slope and several passages can become dangerous.

Having reached Forcella Pordoi at 2829 m asl, you turn left and follow trail 627A in the direction of Rifugio Maria al Sass Pordoi, which you reach after another 15/20 minutes.

You return along the same route.

VARIATIONS:
It is also possible to reach the mountain hut using the cablecar that starts at Passo Pordoi.
