Less than ten years ago, Western Julien Alps were almost neglected: nobody foresaw that they would become a first-class destination for winter sports. After years of explorations and descents, the Authors have chosen a fine seletcion of the best ski-tours in the four major massif of this side of Julien Alps: Montasio, Jôf Fuart, Canin and Mangart, aiming at promoting them to a wider audience.
Each route comes with a detailed description and an assessment, according to a well-tested standard used in the previous publications. The technical difficulty is compliant with the international scale; clear maps and pictures will help the skiers to chose amongst this trove of veritable gems.
This guidebook comes in an Italian language edition; a fully translated German version is available, too.
