The 10 participants arrived at Pale di San Martino on Thursday the 09th of March. After having received the necessary SALEWA equipment, the mountain guides explained in detail the program for the next days and the group curled up at the “Ski Residence” hotel.
Windy conditions on the next day prevented the group following the original plans. Nevertheless, the participants received an avalanche training session where they learned how to behave in a rescue situation and how to use shovels, probes and transceivers correctly. After the training session, the group did their first ski tour to the “Valcigolera” peak and skied down the 40° steep couloir “Cigolera”. A welcome pizza dinner finished off the second day.
The participants reached the “Rosetta” hut by cable car and then skied down to the “Forcella Antermarucol” mountain gorge. Arriving at San Martino, they took the cable car back to the starting point. After having enjoyed the beautiful view from the “Rosetta” peak (2.742m), the group descended to the “Pradidali” hut where they recharged themselves with a delicious dinner.
After a night in tents under the starry sky , the group skied to the “Pradidali” pass and skied down a couloir that led participants’ heart beat faster – deluxe snow conditions paired with sunny weather. Before starting back home, the group enjoyed a nutrient-rich dinner at the “Cant de Gal” to round off the adventurous trip - or to say it in the words of the group: “It’s stunning how our common interest - the mountain - shaped this team in only a few days”!
