The ski mountaineering ascent to Mount Pasquale is a particularly loved and popular itinerary. It offers two possible paths with opposite exposures: from Cedec Valley and from Rosole Valley. The snow is almost always very good and very often in powder.

The excursion offers spectacular views on all the Forni area and towards the glacial rock-falls that come down from Mount Cevedale. Very interesting is the traverse going up through the north (or south) side and going down through the opposite one.
