Ski tour to the Col di Poma

This easy ski tour is also ideal for beginners and takes us on a mountain on which the Odle peaks seem within our reach.

Starting point for our ski tour is the parking space of the Malga Zannes (1,685 m asl) in the real Val di Funes. From this place we take the summer path towards the Malga Busa mountain hut. At the beginning, the path is rather flat, and we walk along the left side of the Kaserill river. Soon we reach the toboggan run, walk along this wide path and continue across the forest, heading for the Kaserill mountain hut.

The forest belt is overcome and in the open country we continue towards the Malga Busa (2,040 m asl). We follow the course of the valley, in a wide right bend we walk round the rough rocks of the Col di Poma. In the north east of the summit, we reach a saddle, and without any difficulty we continue to the top (2,422 m asl), a highly panoramic place that is marked by a cross on the highest point. From this place we enjoy a great view of the Val di Funes and the Odle mountain peaks towering into the sky on the opposite side.

For skiing down we choose the route on which we walked up. In case of secure conditions you can directly ski sown to the Rifugio Genova.

Notice: ski tour without any technical difficulties, also suitable for beginners, not too long. Great view of the Odle mountains and the Sasso Putia.
