Hiking to Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using Ski Lifts Hiking to Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using Ski Lifts

Has anyone ever hiked to the Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using the ski lifts?
I heard that you can hike from Gresonney and that it takes about 6 hours, but can't find much information about how technical it is, actual hiking time (for medium fitness), scenery en-route, etc.
Any advice or info much appreciated.

Alta Via 2 in Dolomites, Italy

Hi all!

5 friends and myself are planning a trek through the Dolomites this July. We would like to do the Alta Via 2, because it's more remote and less crowded than the classic Alta Via 1. We have no Via Ferrata experience though, but are used to trekking.

The route is mostly done in 10 days, but we only have 8 days for trekking. That means we can only do a part of it. ...

5 of us are hiking the Haute Route in exactly 2 weeks time. We're arriving in Chamonix on 7 July, and are looking to complete the route 7 days later on 14 July. All of us are fit, strong and have moderate to extensive hiking experience. We will be taking 12-13kg packs (excluding water), no sleeping bags etc.

Although the route profile looks formidable, I'm confident that we'll be able to double up on Kev ...

Via Alpina

We are hiking the Via Alpina. Just trekked from Wengen to Meiringen. We intend to go from Meuringen to Engleberg, but have heard that snow levels might still be too deep at Joch Pass. Does anyone know whether the trail is passable from Planplatten to Engstlenalp and from Joch Pass to Truebsee? Same inquiry for the Surenenpass from Engleberg to Altdorf? Thanks. 16 June 2015
