OverviewThe Pizzo della Sancia, aka know as Pizot (locally) or Piz de Montagnia (Swiss maps), due to the not high difference in elevation and the low risks of snowslides, is one of the most classic ski-mountaneering summits of Valle Spluga, one of the few that can be climbed even in full winter
It rises on the W ridge of Vallespluga betwen the Passo di Barna (N) and the Passo della Sancia (S)
A new bivouac (Cà Bianca) built up over the old ruins of a telpher arrival (service to a quarry) has made this mountain less wild and changed it in a fine summer hiking goal.
