Ra Bujela Ferrata in Winter

Climbing the Ra Bujela ferrata in winter and the chance to admire the World Cup athletes racing from above is certainly a one-of-a-kind experience for mountain lovers!

On the occasion of the spectacular Cortina d’Ampezzo Ski World Cup, which will see the best athletes in the world racing on the fabulous Olimpia delle Tofane slope, you can climb the Ra Bujela ferrata with me and enjoy the spectacle from above. Every year, in January, Cortina d’Ampezzo hosts the Ski World Cup.

The Via Ferrata climbs the tower called Ra Bujela, just north of the most spectacular and famous section of the slope, Schuss delle Tofane. The starting point of the equipped route can be reached easily on the Piè Tofana – Rifugio Duca d’Aosta ski lift.

The first section is the most challenging, at a medium difficulty level. Once you get to the first bridge (easily visible from the start), it is much easier and more enjoyable.

In all, there are two walkways, 370 meters of cable, and just over 100 meters of altitude gain. In winter estimated completion times are around 2 hours. For technical details on the Ferrata try reading the article published here when the Ra Bujela Ferrata was opened.

Last winter I climbed Ra Bujela and I must say that it is even more interesting in winter than in summer, when the rock face can sometimes be packed with climbers.
Such an ultra-panoramic vantage point over the Ski World Cup is certainly a not-to-be-missed opportunity.
There’s no doubt that the Ra Bujela climb is more challenging in winter than in summer.

Contact me if you would like to climb Ra Bujela and see the races from above. It will be an unforgettable experience.
