From the top of Valfin Monte Leve chairlift take your skis off and start hiking up to the top of Monte della Neve (80 vertical metres, 15 minutes). Once on the top follow the large ridge with skis on, heading south. After 200 horizontal metres of skiing and before the ridge begins to climb, drop into the Vallaccia (steep entrance). There are no major obstacles, just ski straight down towards the bottom and stay away from the deep narrow valley on your right. Starts heading skiers left to avoid the long traverse at the end. No matter where you end be aware that the last 100/150 meters of skiing will be definitely steeper than the rest and a serious risk management and ability to read the terrain is required.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.
