Monte Ra Gusella is the mountain that overlooks Passo Giau between the Nuvolau Mountain Range, 5 Torri, and Monte Averau. It's a watershed between the towns of San Vito di Cadore, Colle Santa Lucia, and Cortina d'Ampezzo.
The approach to the summit by snowshoes starts only from the northern side following an easy itinerary, all the other sides being lined with rocky vertical faces. On the summit an iron statue of the Virgin Mary stands admiringly looking over the great peaks that surround her: Monte Antelao, Pelmo, Civetta, Marmolada and the Tofanas, the highest peaks in the Dolomites.
This is a beautiful and sunny itinerary ideal for picture taking, not too tiring or technical, recommended also to beginners just starting out on this exciting activity.
