A ski mountaineering excursion of medium difficulty but extremely scenic on a groomed trail, in the presence of the most beautiful Dolomite mountain groups. Initially, the route climbs through a beautiful forest of fir and larch trees, offering unique views through the trees, and then along the vast meadows of Störes, an open prairie interrupted here and there by a few characteristic wooden huts. Once you have reached the summit, your effort will be amply rewarded by the splendid 360 degree panoramic view of the Marmolada, the Sella Group, Sassongher, Conturines, Lagazuoi, Fanes and further on to Sassolungo and Pütia.
