Information about the ski mountaineering excursion to Tofana di Rozes and Bus de Tofana

The ski mountaineering itinerary starts from the parking lot of the Freccia del Cielo cable car taking us up to Ra Valles, where we take the chairlift to Bus de Tofana. After a short section on foot, with our skis on the backpack we descend along a short fun via ferrata and reach the large hole dividing the north from the south side. With our skis on, we ski off-piste, down a beautiful couloir to the old Rifugio Cantore. From there, we begin a long climb on the majestic northeast face of the Tofana di Rozes; then we continue along the spectacular summit ridge until we reach the cross on the top, a section inspiring always strong emotions in the hiker and offering a view of incredible beauty.

The descent is as thrilling and exciting. We take the same itinerary we took on the way up or, if conditions allow, we take the “direct route”, a vertical line of descent providing an unforgettable experience. When we reach the Tofanina ski run, we keep on skiing down to our starting point, in center-city Cortina, for a total elevation loss of 2000 meters.

The section of the ski mountaineering excursion to Tofana di Rozes has an elevation gain of 800 meters from Rifugio Cantore. It requires good training and mastering of ski mountaineering technical skills because of the OSA (Excellent Mountain Skier) rating. Maximum incline is 40 degrees.
