Cortina D'Ampezzo

Snowshoeing in the Dolomities - Giro di Val Fonda

The Val Fonda jealously guards what remains of the two small Cristallo and Popena glaciers, some of the last traces of Ice Age forces that enveloped the Dolomites. The area is particularly suited to ski mountaineering and, with its steep gullies that tumble down from the summit crests, ideal for extreme skiing.

Getting there
From Cortina take the SS 51 towards Dobbiaco. After Passo di Cimabanche continue to Carbonin and turn off right for Misurina (SS 48b) to "Ponte de la Marogna" (approx 1.5 Km from Carbonin).

Access
Park on the right, close to "Ponte de la Marogna".
