Ski Mountaineering

Ski Mountaineering

The charm of this sport is difficult to describe in words, but perhaps it is expressed best by its name: ski mountaineering. It is the combination of two of the best and most exciting mountain sports. The snow, which gives a sensation of purity and silence, lets you enjoy peaceful climbs enjoying the environment and following by free descents.


Non-skiers who still want to enjoy the emotion that the mountain offers even in the winter can enjoy snowshoe hikes with area experts.

The hikes are open to experts and beginners and, for those who do not own snowshoes, the necessary equipment is also available. It is a "new" and fun way to enjoy the mountain snow, with friends or children, passing through unspoiled locations in the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park.

TOP Itinerary

CIMA PISSOLA
 
  • Estimated time: about 2 hours with skis or snowshoes 
  • Elevation gain: about 900 m uphill
  • Suggested period: from December to March 
  • Difficulty: SE
  • Boniprati (1172 m)
  • Malga Table (1641 m)
  • Cima Pissola (2063 m)

    Route:
    from the village of Creto you drive uphill towards Prezzo, a small village located on the right side of the river Chiese, from here you go ahead for four kilometres up to the Boniprati plateau (1172 m). Where the road turns left towards Castel Condino, you can park your car and head uphill westwards; pass the road leading to malga Campello and continue uphill towards malga Table (1641 m). Here there are two ways: the first, more direct, is to head uphill in front of the malga and in about 45 minutes you reach a smaller peak from which, along a very scenic ridge, in ten minutes you can get up to peak Pissola (2063 m). The second way is to bear left, for about 400 metres, along the road leading to malga Bissolo (path n. 251) then turn right uphill and gradually bare left towards a hut and continue north-westwards, passing among old imposing larch trees which create a majestic landscape, and meet up with the other uphill route just below the smaller peak. The descent is always very fulfilling, both with fresh powder snow or packed down snow due to the frequent passage of skiers.

    This is actually a rather safe route, easy to spot since it is very popular, the uphill climb is easy, smooth and fulfilling thanks to the breathtaking view of the mountains you have from the top: from the Adamello to the Carè Alto, from the Dolomiti di Brenta to the Prealpi Ledrensi with the Baldo mountain chain in the background, then Mount Bruffione and finally Re di Castello. The beautiful and easy descent is the happy ending to this excursion that you can do with your skis or snowshoes.
