Winter hike to the Rif. Alpino Micheluzzi

The “Rifugio Alpino Micheluzzi”, also known as “Duronhaus”, is located in the Val Duron valley at the foot of the Alpe di Siusi and the Catinaccio group. It is the destination of our winter hike starting in Campitello di Fassa.

We start in the centre of Campitello di Fassa and follow the road to the parish church (Streda de Col) and on to the mountain hamlet of Pian. The path leads along the sunny slope below the Sassolungo group towards the woods. In this section the path offers a view on the upper Val di Fassa with Canazei and the Marmolada and on the lower part towards Moena with the Catinaccio. The path pleasantly continues towards the inner part of the valley and merges with the somewhat steep valley road, which leads past the Fraines Hut and continues towards west.

Through the snow-covered forest the path leads us up to a plain, where the Rifugio Micheluzzi (Duronhütte) is located. After lunch in the mountain hut, we continue a little further into the valley. Through the snowy landscape with view on Molignon and Denti di Terrarossa we soon reach the hut Baita Lino Brach, where the track ends. Back to Campitello we take the same way. The route is also popular with tobogganists. By the way, there is also a snowmobile taxi, with which you can reach the destination without any effort. But we enjoyed the exercise in the fresh winter air.
