Itinerary

We will have a welcome dinner in our guest house in Ponte di Legno to get to know each other and plan for the next few days. If possible, we recommend arriving by 6 pm in Ponte di Legno.
Our daily routine starts with breakfast at 8 am, and we will be ready to leave the house at 8:45 am. A 10-minute walk gets us to the lift station in Ponte di Legno. We will use the lift system to access the best off-piste and ski-touring terrain. Today, we will start with some skiing on the piste to get to know you and see how you ski. Then, we will continue with some easy off-piste skiing, teaching you the right technique according to the snow conditions. During one of the off-piste runs, we will stop and start with some basic avalanche awareness training.
We shall choose some new off-piste itineraries using the lift system, still working on your off-piste technique. During the day, we will teach you how to use your skins and how to climb uphill.
We are all ready for a full-day ski tour! We take the lifts to 3000 meters above sea level and start our trip by skiing off-piste with a great view of the Adamello Glacier down to Rifugio Mandrone (2500m). After a great descent, we put our skins on and climb 400 meters (about 2 hours) to the Passo Pisgana. From here, we descend for 10km on the Pisganino itinerary, a stunning 1800-meter descent.
After breakfast, it's time to say goodbye! Departure time is before 10 am. Hope to see you again soon!
