Monte Cevedale is 3769 m high and lies in the Ortler group. The panorama from the summit on Ortler and Königsspitze is fantastic.
Distance 14.8 km
The high-altitude ski tour to Monte Cevedale (3769 m) rewards us with fantastic views after the arduous climb. With the Sulden glacier cable car we can reduce the ascent by a few metres in altitude. The Schaubach hut (2581 m) and the Casati hut (3254 m), which is open during the ski touring season, are good places to stop. The slope orientation is predominantly north-east to north-west. Orientation up to the Casatihütte is easy. If visibility is poor and there are no tracks, however, it can become a challenge from the Casatihütte onwards. Bringing an ice axe and crampons can prove useful, the last metres to the summit are quite steep and often have to be covered on foot, as the slope from the Randkluft onwards often consists of blank ice. The upper part of the Suldenferner and the summit slope of the Cevedale may be classified as avalanche-prone after fresh snowfall. During the inclined descent to the Casati Hut via the eastern flank of the Suldenspitze, pay attention to the upper slopes, as both rockfall and snow slab avalanches can occur here. If the valley descent to Sulden is possible, there is still a descent of almost 1900 metres in altitude. The Sulden glacier lift is in operation until the beginning of May.
