Ski touring in the Adamello - Brenta Nature Park

Ski touring week in the southernmost high mountains of the Eastern Alps

 

The huge glacier areas and granite mountains of the Adamello offer wonderful ski tours and freeride descents.
From the starting point at and around the Passo Tonale during the first days we will explore the perfect ski slopes in the heart of this natural park.
After an overnight stay in the mountain hut Rifugio Lobbia Alta we will head for the nearby Brenta Group.
We will spend the last two days of the tour between the imposing rock formations of the Brenta Dolomites, in contrast to the vastness of the Adamello.
