Giro di Posporcora

By: Mario Dibona, Mountain Guide
Area: Dolomites, Group: Tofane - Pomagagnon, Country: Italy

Starting from Col Druscé this itinerary traverses to Passo di Posporcora above the panoramic Val del Boite and continues along the beautiful Val Fiorenza down to Fiammes.

GETTING THERE

Cortina.

ACCESS

Take the Tofana di Mezzo cable car, located close to the ice stadium, to the middle station at Col Druscè and the refuge (1779m).

ROUTE

From the middle station at Col Druscè (1779m) take the 411 towards Piè Tofana. This descent ends when it meets up with the road marked 410 at 1675m. Follow this off right, flat at first, then descending slowly, to another fork. Take path no. 409 towards Passo Posporcora up beneath the rocky  "Crepe de Cianderou" and the benches with magnificent view onto the valley below. Traverse without losing height towards Col Rosà and coast beneath the "Tonde de Cianderou", walking past a wooden cross. At Passo di Posporcora turn down right (east) along path no. 408, following signs for "Pian de ra Spines - Fiammes". This is perhaps the most fun section of the walk, as it zigzags quickly down to the river Boite. From here continue along the cross-country piste, taking care not to ruin the tracks, easily on to Fiammes.

DESCENT

From Fiammes take the bus back to Cortina and the ice stadium.

GEAR

Normal equipment for winter walking, snowshoes and poles.

DIFFICULTY

No obvious danger.
