Ski mountaineering and snowshoeing – Baita alta d’Agnone

Valgoglio | Alta Valseriana | Winter

Coming out of the woods on one side you can see the top of Mount Pradella and Giulia Hut, on the other hand, the Timogno barrier.

From the Seriana Valley road, follow to Valbondione / Gromo; Ardesio passed, at the dairy Paleni farm (before the town of Gromo), take the left road that leads to Valgoglio.Follow the road until you get to the Location Bortolotti (1142 m.s.l.m.), where you park the car. Here a bulletin board showing the path to follow to reach the Baita High of Agnone. The route starts along the cart track to the right of the board that goes up to Foppa and in Sant’Antonio, follow it for about 1 km untila deviation: going, you will soon reach St. Anthony, while turning left, continue for snowshoeing (see CAI 228). Here you can put on snowshoes. Soon the track entersin the woods and after a few minutes, near a bend on the right opens a passage of St. Anthony and the mountains of the Val Seriana. Still in the woods we continue the climb, at times made less tiring by the fund wrought by the passage of snowmobiles. After about 1 hour of walking you can see on the right a long hut colored wood. Coming out of the woods at about 1500m s.l.m one hand you can seethe top of Mount Pradella and Hut Giulia. On the other side, the Timogno barrier. It climbs guided by the trace of the buried small road until you reach the plateau that houses the Baita High d’Agnone, usually submerged in snow (1768 m.s.l.m.). The descent is to be performed along the ascent route.
