Monte Bò Valsesia.
___________________________________________________________ Finally! After a weekend full of bad weather, a beautiful sunny day. We are in the middle of March and today, felt air of spring. With the clear blue sky this morning, what better way to spend a beautiful day in the mountains, charming surroundings and the fun of a good skiing. So, me and my friends Mark S. and Nina, we decided to practice some this ski mountaineering.
Beware, the bad weather of recent days brought heavy snow to the hills, making it even once the snow cover unstable, moreover, now the sun's rays heat up a lot, to come during the hottest hours of the day, the avalanche danger increases. So the choice of the trip must be once more scrupulous.
relations are, and Bo Valsesia, is one of those mountains considered "Safe" under the appearance of avalanches. Besides the council, because the orographic position, which is located at the edge, is the boundary between the Biella Alps and those of Rosa, offers beautiful scenery overlooking the nearby Deer Valley and Val Sessera of the Biella Alps, and the Massif Monte Rosa dominates over the promontory.
little more than a thousand meters of altitude, not many, but the path is not of the shortest, the descent is also fattibilissima on another side, allowing a circular route that makes us see the whole valley.
Climb the direction of Alagna Valsesia, a few kilometers after the village of Scopello, we cross to the left, a bridge over the river Sesia in the direction of Rassa. Once in
Rassa, not go into town but we park the car in the first available parking spaces. After being equipped with the equipment, continue for a while with skis on their shoulders, the signs indicate the entrance of the path, which dates from steep side of the road. After the first hundred meters, the slope is attenuated, so we can safely wear skis.
Plane over the Alps in a dense forest of beech and fir trees become higher. The slopes in the undergrowth, are still prominent, but going up at some point the forest ends and you end up in a clearing that offers nothing short of beautiful landscapes. The slopes are reduced and now, heading south, you see the line that still seems so far away. Going to get on the edge of a broad ridge that leads us to the summit.
The descent could safely make the ascent, making sure the last stretch of woods that is very steep, but you should get off on the opposite side, plus you can visit the valley as a whole. After the glades of the upper part, it is inevitable to enter a dense forest, which takes us to the river Sorba, who pass by on a wooden bridge. Now we are on a trail that skirts with very pronounced slope, The Sorba river, which leads us to Rassa.
