This tour is supported by the use of three lifts. The downhill sections follow sketchy ski runs on fairly rough terrain; from the Rifugio Scoiattoli onwards a secondary road with deep rain grooves keeps riders on their toes. The descent onto the Malga Peziè de Parù hut is easy, with the exception that the ground can often be wet.


After the Winter olympic Games in 1956 cortina experienced

an economical boom. Until the 1970’s cortina – with St. Moritz, Kitzbühel and Megeve – was one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Alps. to this day tourism is the thriving economical sector in this region. Particularly at christmas and in August the Pearl of the Dolomites is a very popular destination for lots of tourists. It is easy to understand why upon arrival to the Rifugio Scoiattoli.
