Ski Mountaineering - Fuchiade (Falcade)

Very difficult
Da Falcade seguire le indicazioni per Passo San Pellegrino e Val Fredda. La partenza è in località Col de Mez (appena prima della discesa che porta al rif. Flora Alpina)
Passo delle Cirelle

From the parking in Col de Mez follows the forest road leading the the “casoni” of Valfredda and then after 200 metres turn left and walk up the old ski-slope. Follow the ski-slope and after going out the wood head the “casoni” of Fuchiade, observable on the left. Got at the Fuchiade refuge follow the directions to Passo Cirelle: go along the valley and then, from Passo Cirelle, face another 200mt rise and reach one of the Cime Cadine. The 360° view is overwhelming and the skiers can admire the majestic Marmolada.

Go back along the same path until Valle di Tasca, and then continue straight for another 100 metres rise, to reach Forcella Laghet: you are at the foot of Cima Uomo. From here the descent starts and goes along the ski-slopes leading the skiers back to Fuchiade. If you're not tired enough you can reach Valfredda and continue the descent towards Col de Mez, along the pastoral road. Otherwise, from Fuchiade go along the old ski-slope.
