The backcountry skiing part of the Zero-3000 Extreme Race will start in  Malga Ciapela (1450 m), at the base of the Queen of the Dolomites, in front of one of the most cutting edge cable lifts in the world. The first kilometres will alternate between false rises with a few climbs. After passing Capanna Bill  the climb becomes steeper with two sheer, 35% walls up to passo Fedaia. From here, after a somewhat flat stretch that goes towards Fedaia lake, the route will once again start alternating between gruelling inclines and smoother stretches that pass near the last part of the cable car lift route. The last 450 metres will definitely be the hardest, the ones that will make the difference. The finish line will be placed at Punta Rocca (3265 m), where fans who want to catch all the live action of the final part of the race can enjoy the view from the highest scenic terrace in the Dolomites, which was inaugurated last July.
