How much does it take to Rifugio Dal Piaz?

The classic path starts from Passo Croce d’Aune and follows the Alta Via 2 (CAI path 801). The itinerary does not require any technical expertise, is about 5 km long with 970 m of ascent; the average time to get to the Rifugio is between 2,30 and 3,00 hours.

In the presence of snow, the route may present exposed stretches with ice, packed and dangerous snow. Under these conditions, experience and practice to winter environments are necessary, in addition to crampons and trekking poles. With packed snow and ice, we discourage the use of snow shoes. Who decides to get to the mountain hut is aware of the risks and does it at his own risk.

Is it possible to get to Rifugio Dal Piaz by mountain-bike or E-bikes?

Yes.

You can leave from Passo Croce d’Aune and follows the old gravel military road which is about 11 km long with 970 m of ascent.

Mountain bikes and E-bikes are not allowed along the CAI paths.
