Information about the freeride skiing itinerary Val Fonda Couloirs to Cristallo

In order to access this freeride skiing itineraries it is necessary to climb up with crampons and ice axe on a short but demanding vertical rock face, just above the Staunies cableway arrival on Monte Cristallo.

The first part of the slope is quite steep, it goes along a narrow couloir that reaches the wide Creste Bianche amphiteatre.

From there, you will see on your right side three passes which are the starting points of the three narrow couloirs. The left couloir is Couloir 1, the central one is Couloir 2 and the right one is Couloir 3, the steepest one.

The last, sheerest canyon is amazing and its rock faces are very much eroded by atmospheric agents.
