Val Mesdi (Dolomites) question..

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi all, anyone done Val Mesdi off Sella Ronda? From top of Pordoi is skinning essential? I.e. can you boot pack it to the drop in with normal alpine gear or is it too far/not possible?

Thinking of booking a guide for it when out in few weeks but got no touring gear and frankly can't be bothered hiring any! (Also, knees can barely cope with kick turns!) but a reasonable walk no probs..

Cheers

It’s a bit of a hike but mostly a skate from the top of Passo Podoi. Skins maybe needed following a heavy snowfall but you wouldn’t be going into Val Mesdi if that was the case wink Cracking run although the skiing’s only technical at the top. Mellow after the first pitch.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@Sharkymark, Cheers, will hold of booking until can see what conditions likely to be like nearer the time..

2nd thoughts, may as well book as if there's enough snow to make Mesdi dodgy there'll be plenty of decent off piste from the normal lifts!

Just posting to agree with the chap above.
Me and the missus walked the first uphill bit from the col and then slithered the rest on a fairly flat traverse.
It was great.

Many thanks again to whoever on here gave me the info.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

In a "thin" year the ski out can be interesting, as you're following the stream out at the bottom which can be a bit icy, but shouldn't be a problem now.

Fantastic run: enjoy the experience snowHead
