An impressive snowshoe hike through an enchanting winter landscape in the middle of the fascinating mountain world of the Dolomites.

Take the cable car from Vigo di Fassa up to the high plateau of Ciampedie (1997 m). From here, walk or take the chairlift down to the Vajolet valley, the actual starting point of this winter hike. After crossing the ski slope at the chairlift valley station, you climb on a wide, mostly trodden track up to the Gardeccia hut (1960 m) and from there on to the Vajolet hut (2243 m), which you reach in 1:30 hours. When you reach your destination, you are directly under the unique Vajolet towers (the Winkler, Stabeler and Delago towers). The mighty Kesselkogel rises to the right towards the north. At 3002 m, it is the highest mountain in the Rosengarten group. Opposite the Vajolettürme, the steep walls of the Scalieretspitzen tower over us on the right. The way back leads along the ascent track back to Vigo di Fassa.
