The descent from Monte Ciste along the road is perhaps more rewarding from a skier's point of view, but the proposed crossing allows you to immerse yourself in a unique landscape! To undertake

Ascent: after a first stretch on the road, at 1330 m, turn right onto a mule track. When you reach the first huts (1460 m), climb up to the meadows near Malga Ciste: from here, turn gradually left towards the south-east ridge, which you can follow to the summit. The presence of some rocks forces you to take off your skis in the last metres. Descent: From the top, follow the winding north-west ridge: after the first descent, put back your skins and ski up and down along the ridge. When you reach the Forcella Mendana, a steeper section (which can be covered with skis on the shoulder) leads to the first rise of the Cime di Saleri. At this point, descend the beautiful slopes, past Malga Sette Selle and carefully to the last section (see route no. 10). From the huts in Suerta, take the road that leads back to the starting point.
