Long but quite simple itinerary.
Val Cadino and its luxuriant forests are the destination for those who love being in solitude and enjoying the silence of nature. However, the chirping of birds, perhaps the unmistakable sound of the woodpecker and the sound of the wind in the branches of the trees will not be missing. The itinerary is also used by walkers with snowshoes.

Safety guidelines

Remember, snowpack stability is subject to sudden and unforeseeable changes and shifts. Always check the local avalanche bulletin (www.meteotrentino.it or any other service that suits your needs) before departure and make sure you gather all possible information concerning current conditions by calling the Mountain Guides.

GPS routes are merely indicative of the more reasonable track but must not be followed blindly without first checking current slope and terrain conditions.

Starting point
Ponte Stue
Directions

ASCENT: Take the forest road past a small crucifix on the right and enter the majestic forest of Val Cadino. Go past Malga Stue Bassa and Malga Stue Alta until you reach Malga Cazzorga, located in a beautiful sunny position.

Continue on the mule track to the left of the hut going up among imposing pine trees. At the end of the steep stretch, the majestic Cima Stellune stands out on the left while the Montalon can be seen on the right. You reach a plateau to the right of which, in a lower position, you can see the white and flat surface that hides the Stellune Lake.

DESCENT: by the same route

How to get there
From Molina di Fiemme, follow the sign to Passo Manghen and drive until you reach Ponte Stue (1.252 m), where the snow clearing ends. 
Where to park
Leave your car before or after the bridge.

For all ski-mountaineering activities, the proper apparel is strongly recommended. Skiers must bear in mind that temperatures can dip quickly and garments should also be suitable for snowy conditions (such as waterproof Gore-Tex jackets). Furthermore, gloves, cap, sun glasses and sun cream should also form part of every off-piste skier’s basic gear.

It’s COMPULSORY to carry with you an avalanche rescue kit consisting of avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel (this is also available for rent). In the case of hard snow cover or ice, ski crampons are recommended.
