MOENA - SAS DA MESODÌ
Take the Lusia cabin-lift from Ronchi (I Ronc) near Moena to the intermediate station at 1,820 m - refreshment at the restaurant Chalet Valbona. Then follow the dirt road marked no. 622 which passes the dairy Malga Poza (refreshments and dairy products). After this you keep going in a south-westerly direction. There is a bend to the right and then one to the left, after which you reach the east slope of the Col de Poza. Next the track meets up with the path coming down from the top station of the cable car (path no. 614). After this the path heads due west to the pass known as Sforcela de Pozil at 2,151 m (1 hour). To carry on to the top of the Sas da Mesodì, you need to go downhill slightly, then go to the right along a path which climbs up through the grassy slopes to the crest which joins Col de Poza to Sas da Mesodì. The actual peak is at 2,299 m and can be reached by following the path (1 hour; 2 hrs). For the best views of Moena and the lower Val di Fassa you should go down to the bottom ridge. To get back to the cabin-lift take the Troi dei Soldai (Soldier’s Path) which descends steeply eastwards (1 hour; 3 hrs).

The tour in numbers
The itinerary leaves from the midway station of the Lusia cabin lift (1,820 m). "Valbona" is reached:
by lifts (from Moena by car or public transport to "Ronchi", about 1,5 km. Convenient and ample parking at the valley station of the lifts);
on foot from Moena; from Piaz de Ramon you go up Strada de Longiarif to obliquely cross the San Pellegrino national road and then take the forest road that climbs steeply up to the La Rezila Refuge (1 hour 30 to be added to total time);
on foot along the easy 2 km walk from Moena that goes up in the direction of Someda, then continue to "Ronchi", where you get the cabin lift to "Valbona" (1 hour 15 to be added to total time);
on foot along path no. 632 that, from the overpass of the Lusia homerun piste, on the San Pellegrino Pass national road, immediately goes up to the right (free parking). After 50 m turn right and take the forest road towards "Soracrep" - ideal for taking a shot of Moena and the Val di Fassa from above. The climb is not particularly difficult. After "Soracrep" leave the forest road and continue along the "Troi del Buro" path which, with easy climbs and descents, leads to "Valbona" (2 hrs 30 to be added to total time).
The excursion begins and ends in "Valbona" (1,820 m). For the return you can: take the cabin lift, walk down along the "Troi del Buro" path (no. 632) or along the forest road that leads to the valley cabin lift station in "Ronchi".
