Canale Joel Map

Take the Sass Pordoi cable car up. Ski down towards Rifugio Forcella Pordoi. After the hut traverse E/NE and stay on the same height for about 150-200m. Stop and hike straight up S/SW. Its clear where to hike up, between the rocks. The ascent is max 35° steep and around 100m to the ridge. From the ridge you can ski down in the beautiful couloir. The couloir starts out with a wide funnel, not that steep. It gets up to 45° steep and around 3m wide depending on how much snow there is built up. The most narrow part is between steep and high rockwalls. After that the line opens up again and you can ski down the open field towards the cable car. Be aware of the rocks in the open field. Enjoy this beautiful and easy accessible classic Dolomiti Canale!



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
