Passo Zube (2874m) and Canale Giachetti

Perfect route to approach steep skiing. From Champoluc with the lifts, you reach the Passo dei Salati (2980m), you go down the Gabiet track and to the left until you reach a valley. Put your skins for about 45 minutes, up to the Zube Pass (2874m). Next, you go down the opposite side and you reach the entrance of the coulior. The canal is narrow and steep (45°), then reach Vallone d’Olen. Then you reach the station of Pianalunga where, by the lifts, you will return to Champoluc.
