This easy ski tour that leads up to the Golfen/Monte Calvo is a pleasure tour. The tour can be done also soon even after snowfall.

IMPORTANT: Before starting any ski tour/snowshoe excursion, you must check the weather conditions and danger avalanches report (https://avalanche.report), asking also experts (alpine guides etc.).

Turn-by-turn directions

The ski tour leads from Frondeigen/Franadega first on the forest road no. 24 in a few hairpin bends towards the north. At the end of this path the forest becomes lighter and the tour continues to the Schuheralm hut (closed). In a north-north-east direction, the skitour continues initially relatively flat up to a cross with a bench next to it, then some switchbacks lead to the next hill, from which the summit is clearly visible. Shortly before the summit, it gets a little steeper again.
