General description

This tour to Monte Cevedale is one of the top 10 ski tours in the Ortler region and is extremely popular among enthusiasts. After all, it’s an easy tour that rewards visitors with breathtaking Alpine panoramas.

Route description

The starting point of the ski tour to Monte Cevedale is the Sulden/Solda cable car mountain station.
Cross the slope up to the moraine and keep going towards the Suldenferner glacier, eventually ascending to the Suldenspitze peak via a steep hillside on the right. Once you are below the north-east ridge of the Suldenspitze peak at approx. 3,240 m, cross on the left of the ravine in the direction of Monte Cevedale. Upon reaching the other side, head diagonally right on a descent via the steep eastern flank and past the Suldenspitze peak until you reach the Langenferner glacier. Continue along the flat terrain as far as the Casatihütte mountain hut (3,269 m). You should then head straight on in a southeasterly direction across the mildly steep glacier until you are below the steep slope between the Zufallspitze peak and Monte Cevedale. Head along the ridge beneath the lowest point, then bear diagonally right and make your way up to the lower marginal crevasse. Continue right beneath the marginal crevasse to reach a small steep slope on the north shoulder of Monte Cevedale. Via the ridge, which starts out wide and becomes narrower, you can reach the summit cross located on the right-hand side.
