GIRO DELL'ASSIETTA

Itinerary
Departure: Sestriere
Elevation change: 1650 m

Leaving the route for Sestriere downhill towards the Val Chisone, first along the path of the ski slopes of Borgata, and then next to that of methane, keeping to the map right of Chisone, continue to Pattemuche, Pragelato, Sucheres Basses, Fraisse, until the reservoir of Pourrieres. A slight climb then leads to Lake Laux, from which you continue to descend along the path, through to Fenestrelle. On reaching the village of Depot, a climb begins along a tarred road, to the Holiday Centre of Catinat Pra (a fountain nearby). This is followed by about 8 km of flat dirt road towards Pian dell'Alpe. Near the plateau, after a tarred stretch, keep to the right, climbing again at a constant rate up to the Col dell'Assietta. The dirt road continues on the ridge with grand views over Val Susa and Val Chisone, crossing several peaks and hills, Gran Costa, Blegier, Genevris, Moncrons, Triplex, and finally the Col Basset. From here begins the fast descent on a dirt road back to Sestriere. Although the track is very challenging in terms of length and height difference, there are no particular technical difficulties, and largely follows that of Tour dell'Assietta race, which takes place every summer, starting from Pragelato.
Maximum altitude 2566m.
