Ski tour to Mount Saxner

Easy ski tour in the Valle di Racines, also suitable for less experienced athletes.

In order to get to the starting point of our ski tour, we drive to Racines towards Vallettina. The tour starts at a forested road that turns off in the place where the road to Vallettina starts descending (new parking spaces have recently been built). For about 20 minutes we walk along the the forested road towards south east, across the clear forest. Across another section in the forest we reach the free line and head for the open country (1,800 m asl).

Now we head for a striking hollow that shows us the right direction. In case of less secure conditions, be sure to walk on the back of the mountain. Once you reach the ridge, continue on foot across towards the highest point of Mount Saxner, providing a great view on the mountains of Racines and the Val Passiria.
