Gazex Map

This line starts to bring freeride skiing to an upper level. There are many variations according to different skills. Starting from Punta Sarezza climb the little ridge that goes up towards the gazex. You can go up by walk or by skinning and go up as long as you want your descent to be. the more you go up the more you will ski down. Once you've reached your spot you can ski down the big valley underneath. The snow is often very good thanks to the north exposition. But be careful and read the snow! The terrain is gentle but it's prone to avalanches!!
