Ski Mountaineering - Monte Pelmo-Forcella Val d'Arcia (Selva di Cadore)

Difficultydifficult Time3.30 / 4.00 h

This is a demanding itinerary, suitable only for expert-skiers, that offers breathtaking views of the landscape and exciting descents between mount Pelmo and Pelmetto. Leave tha car at the parking and walk up the sno-covered gravel-slopes at the foot of Mount Pelmo, then turns left: in the middle of the snow slope the path gets thinner and the Val d'Arcia opens between the Forca Rossa rocks and Cima Forada westward. Walk up the snowy col (2476mt) and then a wonderful view of the major Dolomites peaks opens in front of you. You can come go back following the same path.
