Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How are the paths to get to Rifugio Dal Piaz?
How much does it take to Rifugio Boz?
The usual path to Rifugio dal Piaz leaves from Passo Croce d’Aune and follows the Alta Via of Dolomites 2 (CAI path 801). The ascent is 970 m and the distance approximately 5 km, the average time to get to the refuge is 2 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.

Yes, it is.
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.
