Start from the Passo San Pellegrino and skin up a jeep track to the Rifugio Fuciade. The Fuciade has excellent food, even by local standards - which is saying something! Swing south around a blunt ridge and then climb easily up to the Passo Forca Rossa. Just follow the logical line on the ascent - there are no dangers and generally not much to worry about other than enjoying the view.
Ski down a narrow-ish gully and drift to wherever the best snow and terrain is - there are no hidden obstacles so just go where the skiing looks best. Follow the valley easily to the forest and then go down a good track to the campsite - the Malga Ciapela Marmolada. Either stop here or (if conditions allow) carry on down a deep, narrow gorge (called Serrai di Sottoguda) on a good track to Sottoguda. The canyon is famous for ice climbing and if you're here in early season, you'll see some spectacular frozen icefalls high above you.
With this being a relatively short tour, you should arrive back in the valley at lunchtime and there is a lovely restaurant - La Montanara - waiting for you. The food is excellent, the food superb and the staff friendly.
Once you're done eating and drinking, call a taxi on 0039406796016 and head back to your start point.
Wide gentle slopes at around 20 degrees or less.
