Many teams will use the Fiorio Bivi Hut en route to skiing Mont Dolent. This gives 2 equal days of around 1100m of ascent. Fit teams keen for a physical challenge (and avoiding a night in a sometimes crowded bivi hut!) can make the ascent in a day. A very early start is generally required to ensure the sunny slopes on the descent are in good spring conditions and not sludge snow later on!
