Description

This couloir is a bit steeper than Camosci and it's really narrow (hence the name fiammiferi) and can usually be skied after a good snowfall that covers the rocks inside. This run is not for beginners. The line starts under the Groppera lift. Ski down, keeping your left and then when you reach the lift cables start to ski down. Remember to stay more on the left and respect the "cavi" line. Enter a very narrow couloir and ski it down until reaching the Cavallina lower forest. Here you will enter the Vanoni piste. It is suggested to check the line while going up on the lift, since the lack of snow could make skiing the line impossible.
