Madonna della Neve Hut is located at 1,480 mt. in the area called “Selle di Rosazza”, the passes that separate the valley of Pragnetta stream from Cervo Valley.
The path E40 that starts from Piedicavallo at 1,030 mt. and E32/30 that goes down to Rosazza, form part of the GTA – Gran Traversata Alpina (a long-distance hiking trail in Piedmont).
From Piedicavallo you must cross Cervo stream close to Ravere Park (you can find a kiosk). You will reach the hut after 450 mt (difference in altitude), enjoying the view of ancient hamlets in the beech woods.
From Rosazza, right after the bridge on Pragnetta stream, take left up to the parking above the village; a mule track starts here and you have to follow the signs for Desate, a nice hamlet, which you will pass before reaching the hut (585 mt of difference in altitude).
You can send your luggage by cableway.
