Croda Rossa ski mountaineering excursion

The Croda Rossa d'Ampezzo is the one of the most beatiful and "wild" peaks around Cortina, as it is included both in the Dolomiti d'Ampezzo Nature Park (Belluno province) and the Fanes - Sennes and Braies Nature Park (Bolzano province). This massif is mainly made of dolostone, but owes its reddish colour to the limestone of the Jurassic Period and marl of the Cretaceous Period.

The ski mountaineering excursion to Forcella Col Fiedo is amazing from a naturalistic and panoramic point of view and goes along a circular itinerary that reaches from West the pass Forcella di Col Fiedo.

When entering the wide Castello di Valbones amphitheatre, you will enjoy an amzing view of the sharp, reddish pinnacles that surround you.

Information about the Croda Rossa ski mountaineering excursion to Forcella Col Fiedo

The excursion starts from the former military barracks close to Passo Cimabanche.

The first part of the itinerary goes along a trail that crosses the wood to reach Forcella Lerosa, a beautiful plateau on the edge of the wood.

Turning right, you will enter the amazing Castello di Valbones amphitheatre with its high, sharp pinnacles, where it is quite easy to spot chamois flocks.

Then keep right and ascend the steep slope that leads to the pass Forcella di Col Fiedo.

From there, enjoy the amazing view of the wide east rill, where you will ski down a 1300 metre long slope.
