Winter ski tour to the Cima S. Giacomo above Lake Valdurna.


Ascent: we ascend to Lake Valdurna and follow the road which leads to the Val Grande (Grossalmtal) on the left bank. At the end of the lake, near a bridge, we go left up some meadows in a straight line until we come to the road opposite the Öbersthof (1,763 m).
We cross it and go up diagonally right along a small road, which takes us to an alpine hut; we continue further up, going past mountain farms, to reach a barn at the edge of the wood. Through a hollow, partially covered in pine trees, to the left of the south-western side of the Punta Valcenai (Foltschenaispitze), we go up a steep slope heading for the Tellerjoch to the left of the Cima S. Giacomo. Once we reach the mountain pass we have two possible routes;
a) in safe snow conditions, we can descend briefly from the pass to the other side and then up the steep south-eastern side of the mountain to reach the summit;
b) before the mountain pass, we can leave our skis and turn left along a ridge as far as the fore summit; then, through a passageway, we reach the main summit.

Descent: via the same route; in safe snow conditions you can descend to the Val Sebia (Seebachtal) along the steep north-west side of the mountain, going back to Lake Valdurna.

    Die Scharte heisst Tellerjoch und ist nicht rechts, sondern im Aufstieg links (westlich) der Jakobspitze
