Description

Looking for a less-traveled ski destination in Italy? Join me on this 3 day ski tour in the charming mountainside of Gran Sasso!

The Gran Sasso d’ Italia is a massif in the Apennines, located in the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, in the region of Abruzzo. The area is a relatively well-kept secret so you will enjoy the charm of skiing in a secluded area.

We will begin our 3-day excursion leaving Bolzano and going over to Campo Imperatore, which is a beautiful alpine meadow close by. Then, over the following days we will get to explore the Corno Grande (2,912 m) and the Monte Camicia (2564 m), walking over high points of ascension in order to reach these summits.

This trip is only offered to 3-6 participants at a time, making it small and manageable. More still, you will get to unwind at a lovely hotel after the end of each jam-packed day.

Request to book this trip if you have always wanted to ski tour in Italy!

Itinerary

Day 1: Bolzano

Go to Bolzano and we will stay overnight at Campo Imeratore

Day 2: Corno Grande (2,912 m)

 We will go from Fonte Vetica (1600m approx.) through a glade in the Jungwald direction of the recognizable Rinne di Vradda. There are two options: Either you stay low and climb directly into the initially rather narrow channel, or you can cross a bit higher, but then have to pass steep slopes. This climb is only possible in safe snow conditions.

Day 3: Monte Camicia (2564 m)

We will drive to Fonte Vetica (about 1600 m). From there we will climb over the Valle Vradda to the summit. The descent is either via the west flank or via the ascent route, about 1000 m.


About the guide

guide profile img

The mountains are my home. Ever higher, steeper and more difficult climbs are what motivates me. After Reinhold Messner , I am the first South Tyrolean to successfully climb all Seven Summits . I have set foot on the highest peaks in the world a total of 14 times and intend to continue making my high altitude dreams come true in the coming years.

Come with me and discover the most beautiful mountains in the Alps and the Dolomites or join one of my trips to some of the most stunning mountain areas in the world. You can also climb the 7 summits with me!
