An easy ski mountaineering excursion on a groomed path which, after an initial stretch of woodland, soon gives you a way to a magnificent landscape, with the Putia mountain and the Gardenacia plateau being the first ones to be seen during the ascent. A little higher up, the white enchantment of the Armentara meadows awaits you, one of the wonders of Alta Badia, with the imposing Sasso Croce peeping out. On the final ascent, the spectacular landscape also includes the majestic Sassongher and the Sella Group.
