Description

Mount Adamello and its surrounding area, in Italy, is a fantastic place for ski touring. Firstly, because here we have the largest glacier of the Italian Alps. And secondly, because fresh powder snow is often present in this area. This makes it a sort of mecca for Italian freeriders.

It is located at the border between the Italian regions of Lombardia and Trentino. In fact, it is well known for the First World War rests, scattered almost everywhere on the mountain.

Even if Adamello is not a 4000 m peak, I strongly recommend this program. You will not only enjoy a fantastic glacier traverse and the superb ski descent on the famous Pisgana glacier. It will also be a real journey through the history of the First World War in the Italian Alps!

Does this adventure sound tempting? Then please contact me and let’s start planning this trip together!

Another trip with me that you can’t miss is ski touring in Breithorn and the Porta Nera glacier!

From the hut we ski up the whole Adamello Glacier to the Adamello Summit. From the summit, we cross again the glacier to the Passo Venezia, where we drop into the famous Pisgana Glacier. One of the best freeride runs in northern Italy!
