    High Altitude Ski tour Forno Albigna

    Day 1
    Maloja - Forno hut

    We will meet in Maloja. Today we will climb to the hut through the Forno valley. Past the picturesque Lägh da Cavloc we leave the tree line and reach the foothills of the Vadrec dal Forno. Soon we turn off and reach the Forno Hut via the large moraine. From the hut terrace we overlook the breathtaking Forno basin and already see our summit destinations for the next few days.

    2574 m 4 Stunden 800 hm / 4 h
    Day 2
    Cima di Castello - Capanna da l'Albigna

    Early in the morning we leave for the Forno glacier, where we put on the skins and walk over the glacier into the valley. At the very end of the glacier we turn left and climb up to the Passo dal Cantun between crevasses and impressive rock faces. It is not far from here to the Cima di Castello, whose summit is waiting for us with an enormous view and a wonderful panorama. The descent leads us to the rear end of the Albigna reservoir. A short climb brings us to the Capanna da l'Albigna and we look forward to a cosy evening in the winter room.

    3374 m 6 Stunden 1200 hm / 4 h 1400 hm
    Day 3
    Pass da Casnil or Pass da Caciadur

    We leave the Albigna hut heading east. We have several possibilities to get back to the Forno Valley. We decide according to weather and conditions which direction to take. Take either the Pass da Casnil South or the Pass da Caciadur. If possible we can even take the summit of Caciadur.
    A magnificent descent opposite the Forno hut leads us all the way down to the Forno glacier. Also today a return ascent to coffee and cake is waiting for us. For the last time we can enjoy the tremendous panorama from the Hut terrace.

    3038 m 5 Stunden 900 hm / 3 h 700 hm
    Day 4
    Pizzi dei Rossi

    The final tour is another real highlight and leads us to the Pizzi dei Rossi. From here a wonderful descent to the Muretto Valley awaits us. Around lunch time we will arrive back in Maloja.
