Backcountry Skiing - Valle Ornella

Difficultymedium

This itinerary is quickly becoming a classic thanks to its beauty and its easiness. It starts directly along the ski slope that connects Passo Padon to the departure station of the Padon I chair lift . Take the ample slope on the right side of the chair lift and cross a wide slight slope until you meet the beginning of a ascent. Take off your skis and climb the ascent until you meet the signs of the summer itinerary to Valle Ornella. At this point, continue your downhill towards left and then diagonally towards right following the State Road. Here you'll meet anohter amusing slope; take it till you meet a typical mountain barn. From the barn take the left side and cross a little valley with a sparse wood. At the end of the slope you'll find a group of barns; here follow the road that leads to the hamlet of Col d'Ornella through a long passage.
