The whole itinerary is on a forest road, that through light curves and wide hairpin turns, leads to Malga Cere; the view from up there is just breathtaking since the hut is located right under the Monte Setole, on a vantage point on the underlying valley and on the Cima 12 mountain chain.

 

There is the possibility to shorten the tour through a shortcut that leads directly to the hut (with little snow this route could be hard for not specialists).

The slope isn’t very hard and therefore good for everyone, and for the most trained ones there is the possibility to extend the tour up until Malga Valpiana and Cima Setole.

Malga Cere offers the possibility to stop for a yummy break or a lunch with local products while enjoying the view. The malga also organizes events and activities, and of course has rooms for overnight stays.

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 skitours, 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.

Other than the ski skins, having the rampant can come handy in case of hard frozen snow.

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

The helmet and other types of active protection systems (such as backpacks with ABS-Airbag system) are highly recommended.

Destination

Parking lot in Calamento valley

Turn-by-turn directions

The parking lot is a square normally used for wood storage and it is about 1 km after the Hotel Aurai.

Park the car here and wear your snowshoes already on the first little climb, before the first hairpin turn, the road then keeps climbing constantly. At one point, the tracks crosses a river coming down from the Ziolera valley. After a few meters, you can dedice either to take a shortcut on a path from the left side or keep going on the normal path. Please consider the the path is quite steep and ice can be present.

We recommend therefore to go on on the longest path, which is actually safer. Walking on this path you will reach the fields of Malga Cere and find an unique view.

To return to the parking lot, you can ski on the same route.
