Hiking - Day hike up to Rifugio Salvin, still closed until March, but a good destination for an easy hike on the unpaved road leading there. Most of it is exposed to the south which makes it a good hike in springtime while it might be a tad hot unless if taken before mid-morning hours.
Getting there via the road is the easiest option although a couple of different trails though the woods are available.
Today, aside from a few patches of snow and ice, the road much feasible and not too muddy.
The hamlet of Marsaglia, recently restored with stone houses, features an interesting church. Nice resting spot for a snack while on the way.
Descent via the same way.
