Monte Pisanino - Canale delle Rose

By: Giampaolo Betta, White & Blue Mountain Guides
Area: Apennines, Group: Apuan Alps, Height: 1947m, Country: Italy, Region: Tuscany

Monte Pisanino is the highest mountain in the Apuan Alps and, especially in winter, is impressive from any side you look at it. Its southern flank is mostly rocky and is criss-crossed by several gullies often broken by narrow sections, steep steps or slabs. The descent described here is an "alpine" undertaking, and to ski it you need to look for the easy with the difficult, following an illogical sequence of bands of snow, not too steep, that are linked together. The slope angle is constant but never extreme and in some short sections reaches 50°. The route takes you past different aspects (first south, then north-east, then west, then north-west and finally west again), resulting in an exposed and challenging descent. Finding optimal conditions along the whole route is by no means easy but it's well worth the effort.
