See the map for this beautiful ski marathon on the glaciers of Monte Rosa.
The organization of the classic race has decided to ostpone the start because of the very bad weather forecasts for this week-end. At the moment it is not yet decided when it will be possible to start. Hopefully the participants have to wait only for a couple of days. News on www.trofeomezzalama.org
See Carlos blog with very intersting pictures and information during his top tours and trekkings in the Spanish mountains and on Monte Rosa's Dufour Spitze 4643 meters peak.
The Zumsteinspitze (Punta Zumstein in Italian) (4,563 m) is a peak of the Monte Rosa massif in the Pennine Alps in Italy and Switzerland. It lies between the Dufourspitze (to which it is joined by the Grenzsattel) and the Signalkuppe (to which it is joined by the Colle Gnifetti).
The mountain is named after its first recorded ascentionist, Joseph Zumstein, a forest inspector from Valsesia, who climbed it with a large party on 1 August 1820. It was the first of the peaks of Monte Rosa to be climbed. The first winter ascent was by E. Allegra and guides on 30 March 1902.
