Information about the freeride skiing Cantiere

From Passo del Tonale the free-riders will take the Telecabina Paradiso cable car to go up to Passo Paradiso at an elevation of 2585 meters.

The freeride skiing Cantiere features three possible accesses and two exits.

Freeride Cantiere - 1100 meter elevation loss
After going up first through the track and then in the woods the path goes down and it enters the upper part of valley Val Presena. Here the valley is very wide and it allows a free path. After a thrilling skiing stretch, the central part of the itinerary goes on flat. Once the path reaches the old ski-lift, it enters a little military street that in mild declivity leads back to Passo del Tonale.

Freeride Sgualdrina - 900 meter elevation loss
From Rifugio Presena the hikers will go round the cable car station and they will go down into the valley. Then a very wide slope offers several possible descending options. A little before reaching the flat stretch, the path connects to the itinerary described before.

Freeride Monticello - 800 meter elevation loss
From Passo Paradiso the hikers will go through a short stretch on the Paradiso track before going back up on a nice slope. After choosing the best descending lines the mountaineers will cross the hump south of the ridge of Mount Monticello. At the beginnning of the little military street the path connects with the itinerary previously described.
