Val Popena is located opposite the great Cristallo and Piz Popena Mountain Range. It's a valley gently climbing down to the Corno d’Angolo bordering a frozen brook first, then entering the great breathtaking Popena Amphitheater.
This itinerary is ideal for those who want to spend a quiet ski mountaineering day and meet no danger or exposed spots along the way to the ruins of an old mountain hut. This hut was built around 1935 by the Lino Conty family and served as a reference point for climbers going up to the summits of Piz Popena, Corno d’Angolo and Punta Michele. In 1938 a great fire ravaged the hut, turning it to rubble.
