Munt da Medalges

By: Enrico Baccanti and Francesco Tremolada, Alta Badia Guides
Area: Dolomites, Group: Puez-Odle, Height: 2454m, Country: Italy, Region: Trentino Alto Adige

A winter itinerary, easy and safe which is ideal as the season’s first ski mountaineering trip.

ACCESS

The starting point is Longiarù in Val Badia. Longiarù is reached from San Martino in Badia, which can be easily reached by turning onto the road (244) which joins Brunico to the villages in Alta Badia. Once you cross the town of Longiarù follow the road for Seres and Miscì, till you reach the evident car park (roughly 1536 metres).

ROUTE

From the car park turn onto the dirt road (marked n°5) which heads into the valley. Before entering the woods, leave the road and detour to the right climbing up the summer path which helps you gain vertical height with a more direct route. Either by following the path or along the road you will finally reach the wide open slopes above the valley, which in a westerly direction goes past many huts, till you reach the Medalges farm house. From the farm, which can be reached with a last steeper section, continue towards the nearby Forcella Furcia 2293m, to then detour to the right climbing up directly to the panoramic summit.

DESCENT

From the summit directly ski down the slopes below, towards the farm; from here continue first of all along the uphill route, then lower down directly towards the valley, skiing along the slopes near the road (marked 5a), along which you return back to the starting point.

NOTES

Easy itinerary, which is very long. Other possibilities: From the farm, with safe snow, you can ski directly down towards the valley following the open and inviting slopes below. Once you have entered the woods turn onto the path/road (marked 5a) which goes to the left (East), with a few slightly uphill sections, takes you back to the road.
