On the way back to Torino we were discussing where to go the next days. We talked about going to Zermatt or even Bern Alps. Taking into account mi position, we ended up choosing the italian side of the Monte Rosa massif.
To close up our holidays we wanna try to rise another 4000. On Friday we took the cableway till 3250m in the Gressoney ski area. That day just had to get the refuge which is settled at 3550m. We were on the verge of trying another usmmit that day, but the hot day and the time advised us against doing that.
We were resting in the terrace with an awesome view southwards.
Finally, Sun set up.
On Saturday we woke up before Sun went out.
Pablo going up toward Lys coll.
Us close to the coll.
Our summit, Ludwighöhe.
Me on the beatiful ridge for the summit.
The mythical Liskamm from the summit.
Us on Ludwighöhe 4342m, our top ever reached. The summit is actually inside the italian boundier, despite the name.
The descent was easy and more and less enjoyable. Maybe a little bit early for me, at least. Althoug in the bottom part we had wished to start early.
From 2500m we took the Gressoney pistes. To get the village there was just one piste surrounded by the green meadows for more than 200m.
Who can doubt about the potential of taking care the snow??
Later, we drove down the valley. Probably, the most beatiful valley I have ever seen in the Alps, including Swizertland.
