Pisgana and Pisganino ski tour in 1 day

Pisgana and Pisganino ski tour in 1 day | undefined

The Pisgana and Pisganino are two wonderful options for a ski touring day in the Italian Alps, leaving from Ponte de Legno. Go with an IFMGA certified guide.


1 Day

Feb - Apr




I invite you to a full ski touring day in the stunning Italian Alps. We will be in the Park dell’Adamello. From the Tonale pass, we will go to two of the most famous ski touring destinations of the area: Pisgana and Pisganino.

Pisganino includes an ascent of 400m, with a wonderful descent of over 2500m. And Pisgana is another gem, with a 650m ascent and an impressive descent of 2750m.

There are different possible access points to the Pisgana glacier. Since this is a one day program, I chose the one that includes the shortest climb. Therefore, the starting point of this ascent is Pisgana pass. Besides a short ascent, this routes allows us to descend Pisganino if the conditions in Pisgana are not appropriate.

We will meet in Ponte di Legno, in the province of Brescia, and start the tour at Passo Tonale. There, we take the lifts up to Presena pass (2950m). Then we descend on the southern side down to the Mandrone hut (2500m). Using skins or snowshoes, we ascend to Pisgana pass (2933m). Once we are up there, we have the option to descend following the Pisganino itinerary. Or, if the conditions are apt and you are up for it, we go up an additional 250m, and from there descend the Pisgana.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
