The starting point of the ski tour is the large parking area located a few hundred metres above the intersection to lake Pianozes, along the road from Campo village to Croda da Lago- Malga Federa.
Wear your ski touring boots, apply the skins to your skis and start skinning up the forest road, well groomed by the farmhouse snowploughs.
The time required for the ascent is about 2 hours, better proceeding at a steady pace.
The road winds up the Ambrizzola century old forest for 5 km, here all place names derive from topographical features.
It takes about 1 hour to reach the Federa bridge, the next section is slightly steeper.
Half an hour further uphill the woods open up and leave the way to pasturelands, while the profile of Mt Croda del Becco looms ahead.
When you finally reach Malga Federa (1814 m) you will appreciate the stunning views of Cortina valley and surrounding peaks.
Better get changed and wear your spare layer to avoid remaining sweaty.
After enjoying your meal, you are ready to descend.
Take the skins off, block the bindings and get ready to ski down the same way of the ascent.
As stated above, this is a forest road, not a homologated ski run, therefore the descent is at your own risk.
The descent takes about 30 minutes and is not dangerous: important is to always control your speed.
Though we feel a tour guide is not necessary, hiring a mountain guide for your complete safety is always a good idea.
