The went up to get a better view of this magnificent mountain by going up two cable cars from Alleghe. The views, especially in a clear day, are spectacular and breathtaking. Wintertime the mountain has excellent ski slopes and very nice and welcoming bars and restaurants.

The mountains offers a large variety of slopes. None of them as difficult as rated on the maps. The best part is that it has places where small kids can learn skiing, there are many instructors (if booked in advance 3-4 days) and is not crowded not even when crowded. A big plus for the maintenance of the slopes.

Civetta is a great skiing resort with almost 80 km of ski slopes from blue to red to one black slope, which were very well-prepared, with beautiful views and not very crowded. We really enjoy it, and we suggest to stay in a Garni Esperia Hotel, which is the right across the street from the entrance to the main cabin in Alleghe.

Civetta is a paradise for mountaineers, there are a number of high difficulty climbs in t outings, two important and long ferries, and also the way via normal. Also the normal routes requires ferrata gear, excellent physical form, requires experience to exposure and control in moving on this type of terrain. There are some starting points for ascents in this area, but only from Alleghe you can also in the summer ride a cable car, which will take you up to almost 2,000 m. There are two exciting trekking excursions in the Civetty Gallery. A more familiar and more frequented path from A.Sonino al Coldi's cottage to Tissi cottage leads to the magnificent alpine valley beneath the Civetta northwest wall. This trek is part of the Alta Via 1 (one of the most popular long-distance routes of the Dolomites).
On the eastern side leads Sentiero Tivan, which is used mainly as a starting route for ferries. Marked route with some cables and some easy scrambling, but definetely no hiking.
Both of these trips together are part of the so-called „The Civetta circuit trail“. Today you can download the free application of audio guide "Talking trails" for your IOS and antrooid.
From Alleghe you take the lift to Piani di Pezzè, then the new 8 seater cable car up to Còl dei Baldi, and you take the first path veering towards the East that leads to the Malga Pióda (altitude 1,816 m). From this closed Malga, according to the signpost of hiking trails, the Coldai Cottage (2,132 m) is 1 hour and the Tissi cottage is 2: 45 hours. From the chalet we climb to the Forcella Coldai (2,192 m) and then down to the Lake Coldai (2,143 m) .The whole area is quite devastated by numerous tourists and their abbreviations of path.We explore the downhill road down to Pián di Pezzé (no 570) via the famous Rue de Porta Pezzé (esperti !). Proceeding under the Torre Coldài there is a brief climb that leads to the Forcella di Còl Negro (2,203 m). On the saddle for the first time we see the chalet Tissi in the distance and the last guided group of tourists returns. Instead of looking at the scree travers, the path steep turns steeply down the steep slopes of Col Negro. We continue on an up and down path among rocky crags, then it is down until we cross the path 565 that comes up from Alleghe, where there are more fabulous views of the lake.
It's hard to describe the feeling of being alone in silence, in a marvelous, stony atmosphere under majestic fascinating peaks, towers and needles. We admire the wildlife here. In addition to the still flowering rhododendrons, I have to mention the beautiful flowers of Physopléxis comósa Schur, the tender white flowers of the subtle Saxifraqga squarrosa Sieber (a strictly protected endemist of the southeast Alps) and especially the wonderful scented yellow Papaver alpinum subsp. Rhaeticum - a plant of screes and morraine on the limestone in the Dolomites. In my life I have never seen so many of these flowers as in the moraines under the Torre Coldài.
We climb towards Forcella di Col Réan, where we turn right from our road no. 560 to the A.Tissi cottage at an altitude of 2,250 m. The steep descent for more than 1,300 meters did not attract us, so we preferred to return to the same way to the cable car.
The beautiful walk in the entire Civetta area for the majestic rock wall that dominates the trail and follows it along its entire course. A bit physically demanding.

A beautiful mountain! This was my first skiing experience, and I was blown away by the views! I used Scuola Sci Coldai-Alleghe for my lessons, and my instuctor (Alberto) did a great job training me up and then taking me on the more challenging slopes up the mountain. The chair lifts and button lifts were well maintained and always manned so if there were any accidents, help was always to hand! The slopes that I used were well looked after and there were a good selection of routes for my beginner ability. The more advanced members of the group were also satisfied by the more challenging slopes as well. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants to relax in and the food on offer was very tasty. A great location for a first skiing experience.
