Ski mountaineering to the Lastoi de Formin

MS - S2 (easy)

How to reach the starting point:

From Cortina, take the road towards Falzarego Pass. After crossing the area of Pocol, turn left to Giau Pass and continue until you reach the bridge of Peziè de Parù, where you can leave your car. 

A wonderful skitour, easy and safe, with a wonderful view on Mount Pelmo, Tofane and Croda da Lago, through couloirs and woods, to the rocky plateau of Formin. 

The tour starts from the little bridge of Peziè de Parù, following the path n. 434. While you are walking into the woods, the inclination increases until you reach the Cason de Formin, a peculiar tiny log cabin. Once you have reached the fork with the path n. 435, take this last one and follow the majestic Val Formin up to Forcella Formin. From there, continue westbound ascending the ridge, up to the summit (2,657 m). From the top you can admire a stunning panorama on the major peaks of the Dolomites, as well as on the nearby Croda da Lago. 

For the return ski down along the same route: the wide valley allows everyone to find their own downhill track and to make wide and fun curves. The last part, in the woods, is a bit more uncomfortable but, with good snow conditions, still fun.
