This ski-tour starts at the Lake Gioveretto, from there you follow the path no. 10 to the managed Malga Lyfi. There you pass the mountain hut on your right and continue through the forest by following the same signposting until the junction of paths. When you reach the "Lyfiknott", a wonderful snow-covered winter landscape awaits you. From there the way is steep and demanding, but when you reach the Lyfi Peak, you have a wonderful view over the snow-covered Val Venosta.
