Start from the hamlet of "Meida" and walk along Strada de Meida that then turns into Strada Ruf de Ruacia, you will arrive near a bridge ("Pont de Garneté") that crosses the creek "Ruf de Sèn Nicolò", nearby the Restaurant Soldanella. Just before the bridge, turn right onto a small dirt road, slightly steep at the beginning but then getting steeper and winding. Afterwards the path becomes flat until it joins the Val San Nicolò road (ski slope during winter season). At the Crucifix Chapel, keep on the left side of the road and walk on a beaten track, along flat stretches and long hills, until you go out the wood in and reach a place called "Saùch". Proceed in the direction of Baita Ciampié (the only refreshment point in the area open in winter). 

Author’s recommendation

Hiking with or without snowshoes. Pay attention to skiers (mountaineering skiing), snowmobiles and toboggans. Should you need any information about snow and path conditions do contact the mountain guides.

Book recommendation by the author

Winter walks - Azienda per il Turismo della Val di Fassa

Equipment

Wear adequate clothing, footwear and equipment (boots, shoe spikes and poles) suitable for the length and grade of difficulty of trail to be taken. Always try to be self-sufficient and carry with you the necessary to face possible emergency situations and a first aid kit.

Most of the trails are beaten by walkers. No mechanical beating, daily or periodical, is forseen and no specific signs have been placed on the itineraries to show the way. Eeven where scheduled, the beating of some trails by means of snowmobiles, will not be daily but only occasional or following a snowfall. Anyway this does not prevent the presence of some icy and slippery spots on the tracks, especially in the parts placed in shadow. Observe carefully the terrain you are walking on and be always equipped in a proper way.
