This is a popular freeride skiing route which is generally considered to be moderate. It's remote, it features low exposure (e1) and is typically done between December and March. From a low point of 2.7 km to the maximum altitude of 2.9 km, the route covers 773 m, 24 vertical metres of ascent and 181 vertical metres of descent. It's graded 1.2 and Labande grade 2. You'll need skins to complete it safely.


This run starts at the old Guglielmina refuge, now destroyed. You have to walk up towards a big col for about 15 minutes. You fatigue will be well rewarded since you will shred nice powder in a big bowl. Multiple lines are possible since the slope is very wide here.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
