The mountain refuge, Re Magi, can be reached from Pian del Colle, by skiing through an area known as "la Parete dei Militi" (the Soldiers´ Wall) and past the refuge, Terzo Alpini. This is an area of outstanding beauty and, in particular, the area of la Parete dei Militi has echoes of the landscape of the Dolomites. Sometimes the cross-country runs leading to the Re Magi are closed due to avalanche risk.
