Snowshoe excursion | Rifugio Carestiato

An easy hike on a wide dirt road with snow that is frequently groomed by the hut owners.

On packed snow, you can also walk wearing winter boots. 

There are two possible starts:

  • just before reaching the Passo Duran (1601m), on the right, begins the dirt road leading to the Rifugio (you ought to park your car at the Pass and then walk back down to join the dirt road).   
  • from the pass along trail 549 to the beaten track.

Following the road, passing through woods and dwarf pine trees, you snowshoe across the wide pastures of the Casera Duràn (1744m), the detrital bed of Val de le Vie, and dwarf pine trees. Finally, you will briefly climb up the Col dei Pass and get to the Rifugio.
