APT Valli di Sole, Peio e Rabbi


Before or after skiing, we recommend taking a leisurely stroll in the small village of Bolentina, where you can experience the traditions and genuine rural spirit of its inhabitants.

Safety information

The stability of the snowpack is subject to sudden and unpredictable changes. Always consult the avalanche bulletin (on or other available websites for your area) and gather thorough information about the current weather conditions from the Alpine Guides Office of Val di Sole. The GPX tracks are purely indicative of the route but should not be followed without a prior evaluation of the slopes at the time of the excursion.

From January 1st, 2022, it is mandatory for ALL skiers to have insurance coverage that includes liability for damages or injuries caused to third parties. The revision of the mountain safety code requires all minors to wear helmets and prohibits skiers from consuming alcoholic beverages.


Arriving by car in Bolentina, you pass through the village towards Mas de Mez. At the first hairpin turn, you park in a small parking area beside the road. From here, with skis on your feet, you take the narrow road on the right towards Malga Bassa. Passing through stretches of dense larch forests covered in snow and wide sunny spaces where you can enjoy the gentle warmth of the winter sun, you first reach Malga Bassa di Bolentina and then the recently built Mas de la Cros. The descent is planned along the area of Piazza Merendaia and then along the road that leads back to the starting point.
