Ski tour to the Punta Rossa in the Valle del Giovo, ideal in winter.

Ascent: just before the mountain farms at Fontanafredda the country road goes into the Sennebergtal. We enter the valley along a moderately steep slope on the right-hand side of the river. We leave the Similealm and the Sennebergalm on the right-hand side. After about 1.5 hours we arrive at an intersection that leads to the Pernfiechtalm, a hundred meters up on the left. We continue along the left-hand side of the valley to an altitude of 1,643 m (see map) and easily reach the summit on the left (summer route). At this point instead of heading for the alpine hut on the left, we travel diagonally right and proceed on good terrain all the way to an altitude of 2,064 (indicated on the map). From here we go left along a small ridge and past some small hollows, heading for the flat crest. We turn left to reach the nearest summit. Descent: via the same route.
