Status: Completed!
Date: 26-27.11.2011.

Be prepared for this very interesting mission in Valle Verzasca. Day 1, wild slopes and spectacular views from Alpe della Costa and a charm of a hut just renewed in summer 2010 are waiting to be discovered. Day 2 we hike to the top of Pizzo Cramosino 2718m. The snow will hopefully assure a good walking layer... Snowshoes are of course a must and don't forget to bring your security/rescue equipment either! From the top we dispose of wide and not too steep slopes with S-SW exposures for great paragliding take-off. Landings can be found in Sonogno, Frasco or Gerra (see the map below).
If you are looking for light equipment, like harness and/or emergency parachute, Renato at www.paramania.ch will be glad to rent some. Remember: every little Kg counts!

Route Day 1: Frasco 885m - Sèrt 1301m - Pescia 1419m - Sciüres 1440m - A coo der Preda 1561m - Rifugio Alpe Costa 1941m (6-8 places).
