Snowshoe hike to Col Toronn

 

Route: From the car park take the old army road up to Malga Piccolo Fanes. Up to the fork just before the Rifugio Fanes and the Rifugio Lavarella you can generally walk without snowshoes. At the fork turn right and climb across an altitude differential of approx. 100 m through the woods and across meadows (Parliament of marmots) to the plateau Plan de Serenes. From there you can see the peak of Col Toronn situated in front of the distinctive rock face of the Cima Nove. The level path leads westwards for approx. 500 m before becoming steeper, leading towards the Northwest to the ridge top that comes down from the peak of Col Toronn. Continue to climb to the right of the ridge top and in a left curve across easy terrain up to the highest point. Descent: Return by the same route to the Plan de Serenes plateau, then cross over to the South to the Rifugio Lavarella. Alternatively, return to the fork in the path and descend directly by the Rifugio Pederü (at the huts you can hire sledges to return to the valley).
