Mount Adamello is a top spot for ski touring in the Alps. Explore the glacier and the fresh powder of this peak with Francesco, certified mountain guide.



2 Days

Mar - May


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!

Day 1: Adamello Glacier

From the “Passo del Tonale” we join the “Rifugio Caduti dell’Adamello” hut by taking a few lifts to the Passo Presena, where we descend on the Adamello Glacier and we traverse it to the hut. Here we will spend the night, enjoying breathtaking views over the glacier and typical Italian food.

Day 2: Pisgana 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!

Mountain Guide

I am a young Italian UIAGM - UVGAM guide and I live the mountain in all its aspects.

I love being in the mountains during every period of the year and I think each season is special and give us the possibility to discover a different side of the mountain: freeride skiing and ice climbing in winter, ski touring and ice/mixed routes in spring, rock climbing and trekking/alpinism in summer and autumn. Each experience lived in the mountain is unique and for me it is a real pleasure to help and assist people living something that sometimes is almost like a dream.

I speak fluently Italian, English, French and Spanish.

I live in Valtournenche, in the Matterhorn valley, and work with a well consolidated group of UIAGM mountain guides, so we can provide the professional support needed even in case of big groups of people: by contacting me you will always find a solution for your trip in the mountains!
