Skitour to Rifugio Auronzo at the Tre Cime di Lavaredo

3-4 h

How to reach the starting point 

From Cortina, take the road towards Misurina - Tre Croci Pass. After Lake Misurina, turn right towards “Tre Cime di Lavaredo”. After approximately 1.5 km you will see on your left the restaurant Chalet Lago d’Antorno with a spacious free car park.

A classic tour for ski mountaineering beginners, in one of the most spectacular landscapes of the Dolomites. 

From the car park of restaurant Chalet Lago d’Antorno (1,880 m), follow the easy beaten track, which in summer is the access route to the famous  Tre Cime di Lavaredo. As you climb up, the path, firstly surrounded by woods, starts to reveal a majestic view on the peaks around it. 

With a quick detour from the track, it is possible to stop at Malga Rin Bianco for a short pause. 

Once arrived at the mountain hut Rifugio Auronzo (2,333 m), the landscape does not need any introduction: from Mount Cristallo to Cadini di Misurina, from Croda dei Toni to Sesto’s Dolomites; the sight will get lost in the enchanting white wonderland. 

The descent can be done skiing down the same route or, for a more exciting return, searching for the best powder along the slopes.
