Backcountry Skiing - Canalone Fertazza

Difficultydifficult Time30 minutes downhill

FERTAZZA GULLY - Cima Fertazza is easily reachable thanks to the chairlift Fertazza. At the arrival station of the chair lift, walk for almost 10 minutes towards Cima Fertazza (the top of the mount on which you are) until you'll meet an iron cross. From here you will notice a natural opening space that crosses the wood; follow this way until the beginning of the gully. Wear your skis on and face the thrilling descent along the rocky gully until you'll reach a wood and then the first houses of the hamlet of Còi. From here you need to walk for 10 mnutes towards Piani di Pezzè to meet the ski lifts of the Ski Civetta ski area.

This backcountry skiing route is particularly suggestive as it is very close to the rock walls of Mt. Fertazza; the rocks of this mount are not white as the normal dolomite, but black. By taking this off-piste tack you'll get an unusual and fascinating view on the North wall of Mt. Civetta and of the Lake of Alleghe. As you face the steep descent, you'll discover that this backcountry skiing track is particularly exciting since the conformation of the gully is very intuitive
