Freeride/ski tour mix: Long descent off-piste through untracked powder snow along lakes, glaciers and (optionally) over rock-strewn west faces.

In the south, between Passo Tonale and Ponte di Legno, lies the picturesque Pisgana glacier valley. On the "Pisgana Variant" you take the lift up to Cima Presenta (3009 m) and in a wide arc around the slope of Monte Mandron (3281 m). After a few metres of ascent with skins on the Mandron glacier, there is a second spectacular deep-snow descent on the glacier bed down to the lift in Sozzine near Ponte di Legno.
