Nice excursion in the Lagorai, safe ,except for the last part in proximity of the top, in case of heavy snowfalls.
The panorama is wonderful and from the Cinque Croci pass it is possible to enjoy a breathtaking view on the Cima d’Asta massif.
During the winter season, the hike to the Cinque Croci pass with mountain skis or snowshoes can be a thrilling experience.
After having parked at the Conseria bridge, in Val Campelle, it is possible to immediately wear the snowshoes and start walking.
The road, uphill but not significantly hard, venture into a fairy fir woods and then open on the Lagorai and on the Cima d’Asta massif, with a 360° view from the top.
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.
