overview

Quite difficult and long ski tour. It demands safe conditions at the ascent of the Puezscharte pass. Rockclimbing is not necessary, the summit can be reached by ski.

Elevation gain: 1450 m
Ascent time: 4,5 h
Main direction of the slopes: E, NE
best time from March to mid May

Approach

Starting point is the little village of Campill, that lies in a western branch of the Val Badia valley.

From Campill follow the road in southern direction unless the road goes higher to the right and a smaller road follows the valley further. Parking here or a little later at a small bridge (app. 1500 m).

Route Description

The trip starts softly with a gentle ascent over a meadow, then through the forest (not very dense, no problem) always following the valley that cuts between the big rock walls to the Zwischenkofelalm pasture (2085 m).



It’s very beautiful and calm in winter here!



Now climb in SW direction through a valley up to 2300 m. There the ascent to Puezscharte / Passo Puez (2571 m) goes in SE direction and climbs a slope that gets more narrow and leads to a steep couloir.



Depending on the conditions it is better to follow this couloir to the end or leaving it in front of the narrowest part to the right to a little ramp. Most difficult part of the route! Now you have reached the Puez plain. This plain with some ups and downs has to be followed in western direction. The slopes north of Col di Puez (mountain!, 2725 m) lead to a pass (2630 m) and a plain. This plain rises to the final slopes to the summit.

Essential Gear

normal equipment for a ski tour including avalanche gear. Orientation can be a problem on the Puez plain, so GPS or a bussole can be useful
