Information about the snowshoes excursion to the 5 Torri

The excursion begins at the parking lot at Bai de Dones where we board the chairlift taking us to the Cinque Torri, reaching an elevation of 2200 meters. We venture with our snowshoes on a marvelous circular tour, discovering towers, along trails never too difficult yet still thrilling because of the surrounding environment. The itinerary continues to follow the old military trails from World War I until we get back to the top station of the chairlift. We negotiate the descent by chairlift or we hike on our snowshoes through a beautiful larch and pine forest, down to Bai de Dones.

The excursion on snowshoes to the Cinque Torri does not include any challenging drops. It is graded F (Easy).
