val di fiemme inverno da malga cugola

From the Oclini mountain pass to the Cugola hut

The winter walk by snow shoes below Mt Corno Nero offers a fantastic panoramic view from the Brenta Dolomites to the mountain range of the Lagorai.

To get to the Passo Oclini (2,000 mt above sea level), our starting point of this walking-tour, we have to follow the road from Cavalese to the Passo di Lavazé. We carry on until the Oclini top. The car we leave on the parking space of the small skiing-area, take a short rest at the inn of the Corno Nero and start our snow shoe walking-tour. Let’s go!

The path (marker “Malga Cugola/Kugelalm”) first crosses the slope and leads us into the woods around the Corno Nero. We enjoy the silence and peace in the snowy wood! On our right we see the villages of “Aldino” and “Redagno”, the deep Etsch valley and the Brenta-Dolomites. We reach the Passo Cugola and walk downhill to the Hut Cugola. In front of us we have now the Val di Fiemme with the impressive mountain range of the Lagorai. A wonderful and sunny place which is excellent for a short rest (unfortunately in winter the hut is closed).

We take the same way back until the Passo Cugola. There we choose the path which leads us to the Hut Isi (1,853 mt a.s.l.). From there a light rise leads us back to the Passo Oclini, our starting point of this walking-tour.

Please note: snow shoes can be rented at the ski rental on the Passo Lavazé. Please take information about the current opening hours by calling +39 0462 341367!
