Ski touring trail between the Val d’Ultimo and the Val di Rabbi, ideal in winter and spring

Directions

Ascent: we follow the road next to the lake to reach the cable car leading to Lake Verde. We go along the valley on the right-hand side of the river, and follow the summer route. We go up a slope on the right-hand side of the dam to the Rifugio Canziani (Höchsterhütte, 2,561 m); approx. 2 hours.
We go right and round the lake (steep slope!) above a wide step, and we enter the valley on the left. We go up along a steep rocky spur and reach the edge of the Vedretta Fontana Bianca (Weissbrunnferner). We go up diagonally left as far as a steep summit slope leading to the summit. We go on and reach the start of the summit ridge (leaving our skis). We then go left along the ridge across the rocks.

Descent: via the same route. In spring, below the slope leading to the summit, keep right, passing by a crest you can go down through a wide channel, reaching the ditch at the far south-west end of Lake Verde. Going ahead down a steep slope you can reach the bottom of the valley and the car park.
