The gondola lift will take you to the Belvedere Ski Area, then it's down to Pecol where you can catch the cableway to Col dei Rossi and admire the Marmolada glacier right in front of you in all its grandeur.
The new Funifor ropeway will take you from Col dei Rossi to Alba, where you can then climb to the Ciampac Ski Area via cableway. Having reached Sella Brunech, you'll be able to enjoy a spectacular view of Punta Penia and the southern face of the Marmolada.

This is the starting point for a long descent that takes you down the Valvacin red piste, which is about 1,640 metres long. As you ski, you'll be treated to a singular view of the Saslonch group, where the Sasso Piatto can also be admired. Near the end of the Valvacin slope, it's worth stopping to see the view of the famous Catinaccio/Rosengarten massif, right ahead of you. Depending on your technical skill, you can now choose the Panorama red piste or the recent Vulcano technical black piste down to Pozza di Fassa. A ski bus will take you from Pozza to Vigo in 10-15 minutes, to the start of the Catinaccio cableway. When you reach the end of the cableway, you'll be at an altitude of 2,000 metres, in Ciampedie, also called "Campo di Dio" (or "Field of God"), a real "spectator terrace" over the Val di Fassa and the Dolomites, also famous for the extraordinary Vajolet Towers and the Catinaccio group.
