Description

In Fuorns we strap on our skis and climb first over open terrain, later through a light forest to the striking, red building of the Ziegenalp Puzetta. Around 300 goats spend the summer on this alp, in winter we are alone here and the silence is total. If you like it very comfortable on the ascent to here, use the snow-covered road.

After the alp we continue evenly until we have to overcome a steeper slope after the last fir trees. Deep below us lies the Val Medel and we have more and more unobstructed views to Disents and almost to the Lukmanier Pass. Arriving at the summit we are almost surprised by the mountain range of Piz Medel, we have the feeling of standing almost at the same height. The descent runs along the ascent track, there is enough space for parallel turns.

Geheimtipp

In case of lack of snow in the lowest part, we climb on the road to Alp Puzzetta and take it again as a descent.

 

 

 

Directions

We ascend from Fuorns practically in a straight line to the summit.
