Ski tour to the Al Giogo

Easy tour on a highly frequented summit above Terento, with a view of the Fundres mountains.

In order to get to the starting point of this tour, we drive to the sunny village of Terento. After the end of the village (on the road to Brunico), we take a turn-off on the left, following the indication “Gasthof Nunewieser”, after about 3 km we reach the parking space at the mountain tavern.

From the parking space we walk to the right across the meadows, along the edge of the forest, directly into the forest. The way is moderately steeps and we walk along a narrow trail, twice we traverse the forested road, which is a toboggan run in winter. When the forest clears up, we reach the Malga Pertinger Alm (1,861 m asl). We leave behind this mountain hut and traverse a steep meadow straight through, in front of the mountain hut. Soon we reach the upper Pertinger Alm mountain hut (2,000 m asl), which is not open. This is where the summit slope begins in the open country, and where also a nice toboggan run starts.

The last 400 m are still in front of us, and we start walking towards the cross at the summit (2,045 m asl), providing by the way a great view of the Fundres mountain and farther. For skiing down, this mountain offers vast terrain, due to the fact that it is a relatively secure tour and well-frequented, often the slope at the top seems a ski slope. Those who are not skiing experts can ski down the forested trail (toboggan run) in the lower section.

Notice: relatively easy tour in the Fundres mountain, which is highly frequented. Possibility to stop at the Malga Pertinger Alm mountain hut (only in the weekend). This is also where the toboggan run starts.
