The first snow !
Start of the
Snowshoe season with an excursion at Rifugio Panepucci and Passo del Belvedere . Gran Sasso National Park

A beautiful tour in one of the less known areas of the Gran Sasso . After having crossed a wonderful beech forest we reach the Rifugio The path we will cover will allow us to admire a 360 degree panorama from the Valley of Chiarino and the Monti della Laga to the major peaks of the Gran Sasso .
We will meet at L’ Aquila in a place to decide by telephone. From here with a 30 min by car we reach the Capannelle Pass , starting point of our hike .

It ‘ an easy hike (F ), but a bit long with a vertical drop of 450 meters and 5 hours walk total. The perfect start to regain confidence with snowshoes.
