With over 3,000 meters of altitude the Mountain Vallecetta is the Freeride Paradise with heavy snowfalls and great snow quality which make Vallone a spectacular spot to practice freeriding.
In this area you mainly have two possibile itineraries: “The Classic” and “The Cross”. Both give great satisfaction within a silent and uncontaminated environment.
If you are a powder seeker, the Vallone’s experience is obligated, at least once in a life-time.
Suggested itineraries in Vallone:
You’ll never get tired of this one. Great satisfaction.
Reach Bormio 3000 by cablecar and pass below the station entering the hill side. No mandatory itinerary to ski down. After the first half don’t go too far left due to the presence of rock barriers. Reach the avalanche barrier before the plateau. Gather speed from here and go to the right, look out for the little road which will take you to the ski slopes with a five minute walk.
Do not enter the summit avalanche barrier: very dangerous area!
Get out of the cablecar and pass below the station. Follow the western ridge which takes you to the Vallecetta summit. From the peak enter the couloir which faces North-East and join the Vallone’s classic.
