Freeride tour of the week | Cima Valcigolera

Lift-assisted tour in San Martino di Castrozza

by Lorenzo Rieg 03/06/2016
San Martino di Castrozza is no longer a real insider tip, even if it is a little quieter after fresh snowfall than in the absolute hotspots. There are of course also opportunities for ski tours from the numerous lifts, with the Cima Valcigolera offering a rewarding descent with a short ascent.


From Rifugio Punta Ces, first push or traverse a little to the west before ascending and following the flat valley further west or southwest. Below the Cima di Ceremana, continue the flat ascent to the west as far as the Forcella Valcigerola. Here you turn south and reach the summit of Cima Valcigolera via somewhat steeper terrain.


There are various access points for the descent, some of which are very steep. As a rule, you start a little to the east and below the summit. However, all variants lead east into the cirque below the summit, where the terrain quickly becomes flatter, but still offers an interesting descent. keep heading east and reach the piste and Malga Valcigerola via a final slope.
