Tofana di Rozes is one of the most spectacular ski mountaineering itineraries in the Cortina d’Ampezzo valley and in the entire Dolomites. The wide slopes seem to have been created specifically to be skied and everyone can go in search of the best snow to draw their own curves.
Tofana di Rozes is reserved for expert and well-trained ski mountaineers, but which will reward you with unforgettable emotions.
The view enjoyed from the top is unique and extends 360° across the entire Dolomites.
Starting from the Rifugio Dibona, you reach the Rifugio Cantore and the Rifugio Giussani along a wide valley which generally offers excellent snow. The last part is squeezed between very vertical cliffs, which makes this section very spectacular. From the Rifugio Giussani, we climb the wide slope that takes us to the wide final ridge. We will follow it with great care, stopping from time to time to admire the spectacular panorama. Arriving at the top of the Tofana di Rozes, at 3225 metres, will be an explosion of joy and emotion. The basin of Cortina d’Ampezzo and the great peaks of the Dolomites lie at your feet, with a 360° view.
The descent follows the same route as the ascent, with wide slopes and beautiful valleys where everyone can find their own path. For the more experienced, it is possible to descend the steep east face of the Tofana di Rozes, an adrenaline-filled and unforgettable descent.

To travel it, you need to be well trained and have mastered mountaineering and ski touring techniques.
