Description

From the mountain restaurant Baita Sun Bar, on the San Vito di Cadore skiing pistes, take the prepared track on the left of the snowcat shed. Follow this track and cross the river Rusecco. (Take care: the stream could be frozen).

From here, carry on along the firebreak road through the middle of the forest until you reach the mountain hut Rifugio Scotter, after about 1-2 hours. From the hut you will have a wonderful view of the majestic mounts Pelmo and Antelao.

For the return trip, you can ski down the same route or down the ski slopes.

The time is for the entire itinerary.
