Sella di Cima Grostè
Panoramic ski mountaineering itinerary, reserved for good skiers: it reaches the Cima Grostè saddle and then descends first through an aesthetic Dolomite canal and then for a long off-piste descent in the woods up to Val Brenta.
Service and accompaniment by a certified mountain guide throughout
In-depth study of skiing techniques both uphill and downhill based on the type of snow
Teaching of the use of the search device caught in an avalanche (ARTVA) and notes on nivology
Meeting at 8.30 am at the departure point of the Grostè cable car, briefing and checking of the participants’ equipment.
Ascent by cable car to the Stoppani Refuge (Grostè Pass).
After putting on our mountaineering skis we will climb in a south-east direction to reach the base of the north couloir of Cima Grostè, which we will tackle first with steep inversions and then on foot to reach the saddle of Cima Grostè. From here the spectacular descent begins, first on the southern side and then into the aesthetic and steep Campaniletto dei Camosci canal. Once we reach the Vallesinella Superiore glacier, skiing in a landscape that has no equal, we will descend to the Malga Vallesinella Alta, Vallesinella Bassa and Val Brenta. From Val Brenta we will then return to Madonna di Campiglio with a taxi service.
An alternative to the climb from the north side is the one from the east side, which is even more panoramic.
