Ski tour on the Col Toronn

The Col Toronn is a panoramic balcony opposite the Gruppo Sella and high above the Passo Gardena.

Starting point for your tour is the parking space at the end of the Vallunga, branching off in Selva Gardena (subject to toll). Alone the position of the parking space, at the foot of the rock faces is spectacular. From here we proceed on skis towards the head of the valley and the S. Silvestro chapel, where a path used for walking in summer takes into the Val Chedul. Pitilessly steep we walk up the forest (be careful, often iced). The forest clears and we walk along the foot of the mighty rock walls of the Mont Desseura.

At the end of the valley, there is a steep slope under the Forcella Crespeina (2,528 m asl), whis is overcome in kick turns. From the top of the ridge you can proceed a little further with skis on the right, then you take off your skis and walk to the top of the Col Toronn. Otherwise you walk round the rocks below in order to reach the highest point. In case of reliable snow conditions and avalanche risks you can also scale the mountain on skis without circuitous route to the Forcella Crespeina.

Highly impressive is this tour from a natural and panoramic angle - the view includes the Sciliar and above all the Gruppo Sella. Ski down along the way up.
