FATMAP difficulty grade
We start in Corvara taking the cable lift to the little village of Colfosco the starting point of the Val Scura ski mountaineering excursion at Sassongher. We start ascending the slopes to the bottom of Sassongher with the ski.
Then we continue on steeper slopes with crampons and axe.
Once we reach the Sassongher pass at 2435 metres, we keep ascending towards the peak until we can see the start of the couloir. We can ski down the entire couloir which does not present any special difficulties, other that for the need to abseil for 20 metres at the end of this very rewarding descent. In order to get back to Corvara we turn left and skiing through the wood we get to the first building of Corvara.
