The Cevedale Group is named after the third highest summit in the Ortles Alps, the Monte Cevedale.
Mt. Ortles, Mt. Gran Zebrù and the Monte Cevedale are the Big Three of the Ortles Alps. The 3,769 m high Mt. Cevedale is embedded in the Stelvio National Park and represents a preserved area. On its top proceeds the border between the Lombardic province of Sondrio and the Trentino. Along this mountain crest also further gigantic mountains rise.
Next to the Monte Cevedale, the two Zufallspitzen (stress on the second syllable), or Cevedale Peaks, are located: Mt. Cevedale II (3,757 m a.s.l.) which marks the border triangle Sondrio - Trentino - South Tyrol, and the lower southern pre-summit (3,700 m a.s.l.). Furthermore, Mt. Pasquale (3,553 m a.s.l.) and Mt. Palòn de la Mare (3,703 m a.s.l.) belong to this mountain group.
The area is also popular among ski tourers. An overnight stay could be planned at the Rif. Gianni Casati mountain hut (3,269 m a.s.l.) which is accessible from the Solda skiing area in the Val Venosta valley. Mt. Cevedale can also be reached from the Rif. Martello (2,580 m a.s.l.) or from the Rif. Branca (2,487 m a.s.l.) mountain huts. Partly remains of WWI are visible, because here the Italian-Austrian front line of the so-called Mountain Warfare proceeded.
