This is a ski tour on the north-facing slopes of Val Nandro. Therefore, there is not much sunshine, which promises good snow conditions. The wide slopes offer much space for variants. The starting point of Radons is best accessible via the Savognin ski area. It can also be reached from Parsonz or Tigignas by hiking a good hour on the sledging run. Reaching Radons by ascending the ski runs of Savognin is not recommended.
