Information about the ski mountaineering excursion to Cima Sella

The excursion starts from the top station of the Grosté cable car, at an elevation of 2437 meters. After gaining and losing elevation and after going round a very picturesque pyramid shaped rock, we get to the wide and marvelous hollow of Vedretta di Vallesinella Inferiore from which the two possible itineraries to the summit of Cima Sella branch off.

Both of them feature steep stretches, passages on rock, narrow couloirs and exposed traverses until we get in between the two peaks of the summit. After leaving our skis we reach the summit that offers an incredibly beautiful view. The thrilling and long freeride descent takes place through one of the two possible options towards valley Val Brenta down to Plaza, where we take the ski lift to go back to the starting point.
