Mount Punta Casana, with its evocative summit that touches the elevation of 3007 meters, rises majestic south of Livigno. The ski mountaineering excursion to this mountain is a very beautiful itinerary; a very nice hike that mostly develops on sweet slopes but that also provides a short steep and exciting stretch.

The development and the elevation gain are relevant but the technical issues are never extreme. An exciting and particularly rewarding path that offers evocative and spectacular landscapes and that provides an electrifying ski ride.

Information about the ski mountaineering excursion to Punta Casana

The ski mountaineering excursion to Punta Casana starts from the area where the last houses are, at the entrance of valley Valle di Federia; the itinerary starts beautiful and it goes up through the evident southwest ridge, first on very beautiful meadows and then in the evocative woods.

A series of sweet little valleys, then, will lead the hikers to where the rocks start, at an elevation of about 2550 meters. Following for a while the thin south ridge that gets steeper and steeper, the path gets to a stretch on which, skis on their back (crampons useful), the hikers will reach the evident east ridge that, almost flat in the beginning, definitely rears up in its last short stretch.

The descent ski ride -wonderful!- develops through the climb route. If the snow conditions are safe it is possible to go down through the nice east couloir that goes down directly towards valley Valle del Saliente or through the little couloir that starts at the beginning of the rocks by the ridge.

The ski mountaineering excursion to Mount Punta Casana from valley Valle di Federia starts from an elevation of 1850 meters and it reaches a maximum elevation of 3007 meters covering a total 1160 meter elevation gain. It features a development of 13 kilometers and the climb can be done in about four hours.
