Ski tour to Mt Cima Bärental

High above Falzes this ski tour to a 2,450 m high panoramic mountain offers a fantastic view to the Fundres Mountains.

Starting point of our ski tour in the Fundres Mountains is the Bärental Farm in Plata, accessible from Falzes along a 5.5 km long mountain road (parking off-street or at the bridge). Along a forest path we walk into the wood, please ignore all further junctions to the right. The less exhausting ascent (about 400 m in altitude) leads us to the Bärental alpine pasture (Bear Valley, 1,847 m a.s.l.). Through the light larch forest we carry on towards the Bärentaler Oberhütte mountain hut (2,028 m a.s.l.), this section is slightly steeper.

We leave the timberline behind us, the view down on the Val Pusteria becomes more and more impressive, opposite Mt Plan de Corones is located, behind we can see the Dolomites. Through a beautiful landscape - the summit is already visible - we climb further up. Across some rocky levels we reach the left foot of the peak and across the west ridge we climb up to the highest point.

Please note: fantastic panoramic view on the Fundres Mountains until the Dolomites. The extensive terrain in the upper part allows many possibilities to ski downhill. Technically easy ski tour, the downhill skiing through the wood can be done along the forest road.
