Right at the feet of Passo Manghen, there is a small alpine valley, beautiful in every season.

The woods that frame the road that crosses Val Cagnon, become a fairy tale-like scenario when the it starts snowing. This itinerary is feasible both with snowshoes and skis and isn’t difficult, given the gentle incline of the whole path.

Author’s recommendation

There is no rest stop on the route, take therefore drinks and snacks with you.

Safety information

The stability of the snow cover is subjected to sudden and unpredictable changes.

Always check the avalanche bulletin (www.meteotrentino.it) and ask about the weather conditions in the local Alpine Guides offices.

The gpx tracks are just an approximation of the suggested route and can not be followed without a preliminary evaluation of the current situation of the snow and the ground.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Equipment

For all snowshoe hikes, is recommended to wear adequate and waterproof clothing, ready for sudden temperature drops (e.g. Gore-Tex). Gloves, cap, sunglasses and sunscreen should always be carried.

Not fitting footwear (too loose or not waterproof) can cause a beginning of frostbite.

It is mandatory to carry the avalanche kit, made of ARTVA (Avalanche swamped searching engine) – shovel – probe. Walking sticks are extremely useful and recommended.
