Information about the ski mountaineering excursion to Mount Antelao
The ski mountaineering excursion to Mount Antelao is usually done in the spring season, leaving at dawn from Rifugio Scotter, which is reachable by car. From there, progress towards Forcella Piccola along a rill where it is possible to hike or ski depending on the snow conditions, and then ascend the wide rill that reaches the access point to Canale Lindemann, to be climbed up with ice axe and crampos. At the end of the steep rill, ascend with the ski skins on the slabs of the Antelao, that have slopes that reach 40°, to reach the Bivacco Cosi (currently buried under a landslide). Leave there your equipment in order to progress more freely, just with ice axe and crampons and forming a rope-team, along the sharp ridge to reach the summit of the peak.
From the summit, descend along the same path with the utmost caution as the cliffs are overhanging and the snow conditions, that should be repeatedly checked, can vary within the same day. The other possible descent itinerary along the rill left of Lindemann requires the use of abseiling techniques.
