Pizzoccheri Tour Cevedale

Mount Cevedale is our main achievement of the week, but not only that…! The landscape of this mountain range is amazing and from the summits you really feel that you are in the centre of The Alps!Cevedale landscape

 

Mount Cevedale with the elevation of 3769 meter, is included in the Stelvio National Park and it is the third highest peak of the massif after the Ortles and Königsspitze (Gran Zebrù). It is the more popular, and this is the reason why the actual massif takes its name from it. The mountain lies on the border between two regions: Lombardy and Trentino-Alto Adige. The summit of the mountain is made up of the main peak and two smaller summits, located north-east of it and connected by a sharp ridge. The highest peak is located exactly on the border between the provinces of Sondrio and Trento and is the highest point of Trentino. It is an ideal place for ski touring programmes for every ski and fitness level, and the beauty of this corner of The Italian Alps will remain in your memories forever, probably also the delicious food and the tasty wine of the Valtellina!

Day by day program Pizzoccheri Tour Cevedale:

1st day: Transfer from Milano Malpensa Airport to Bormio and Santa Caterina, Valtellina, Lombardia Region, in the centre of The Italian Alps. At your arrival we will check your climbing gear and what we need for the week. Any gear you still need or is missing we will rent in S.ta Caterina in the afternoon or the following morning. We will stay for the night in the cosy Hotel Sport, right in the centre of Santa Caterina Valfurva. A big plate of Pizzoccheri (local delicious dish) and a couple of glasses of the tasty Inferno wine will make special our evening!

2nd day: After a short transfer to Baite dei Forni (2176 m) we park the car and we get ready with skis and skins. The program of today is to reach the Ghiacciaio dei Forni, leaving behind the extra things we climb up to Pizzo Tresero (3594 m) with light gear. On the way back after a great descent we collect the extra luggage and we easily reach the well located Rifugio Branca (2493 m) on the side of the Forni Glacier.

3rd day: From Rifugio Branca we have a big choice of itinerary and we’ll choose the best climb depending on the weather and snow conditions. Here are some of the main possibilities: Palon de la Mare (3703 m), Pizzo S. Matteo (3678 m), Cima di Pejo (3549 m), Monte Vioz (3645 m). One more night at Rifugio Branca.

4th day: A nice and easy climb with a short steep climb at the top to reach Monte Pasquale (3553 m). From the summit we’ll enjoy the beautiful descent of the Vedretta di Cedec Glacier and we will end the day at Rifugio Pizzini (2700 m), good beer and good food!

5th day: Climb up to Monte Cevedale (3769 m), the main summit of the area. To climb Cevedale we will do a round trip through Vedretta del Cevedale and Vedretta di Cedec Glaciers. Back to Rifugio Pizzini where we stay for the night.

6th day: Climb up to Cima di Solda (3376 m) and a really long descent to the traditional Village of Solda (1907 m). We stay at night in the beautiful Hotel Cristallo where a good sauna and an excellent dinner will restore the energy.

8th day: Long flatish climb on Verdetta del Cevedale Glacier to reach Cima tre Cannoni (3300 m) and ski back down to Rifugio Pizzini and to the car. Drive back to the Airport after another good dish of Pizzoccheri, for not forget the taste of The Italian Alps!
