This Winter accompanied us for such a long period of time that we couldn’t close it in a relaxing (if it can be defined like that) way enjoying the last perfect snow conditions.
After various proposals, the Holimites team opted for a ski randonneering excursion on one of the nearby peaks in the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Natural Park as end of season trip.
The choice fell on the easy (even if our girls don’t think so) hike to the peak at 2.340 m. of the Sas dla Para, called by our neighbours from Cortina d’Ampezzo “Lavinores”. The Holimites “boys” that had a better condition skinned up twice to this peak while the ‘girls’ waited us at the top after our second ascent. After the last downhill on a powder covered north face our descent ended directly in front of the Fodara Vedla Hut where we enjoyed a great lunch and took care to get some tan before skiing down to valley. This is also one of the places where we stop during our Trekking and Trail Running tour on the Dolomites Alta Via 1.
So this is the way we finally closed the winter season 2013 with some last winter pictures (and video) that we want to share with you.
But now we cannot wait to see our meadows tinged with green, and we are looking forward to see you during the summer into the Dolomites!
