To the Piz Upia

General description

This tour counts as one of the easier ski tours in Matschtal in the Vinschgau valley, but the ski mountaineers will be rewarded with a magnificent panorama.

Route description

Start out from the Mazia Valley and from the Glies farmsteads (1.810 m), follow the path across the pasture until you reach the Upia Alpine pasture (2.225 m). From there, go left up to the rocks in a slightly semi-circular direction. Then cross the gentle slopes up to Upia lake (2.552 m) and continue in a southerly direction, between Upia Peak and Hochalt. The steep slope, which is the most demanding part of the hike, requires keen attention and a high level of physical fitness until you reach the peak. Prepare yourself for some stunning scenery and a dizzy descent. Not for vertigo sufferers!

The descent follows the same route.
