Otherwise we can also choose between two alternative ways: the one going from the panoramic balcony of the Monte de la Resa and the other composed by the two descents towards Livigno along the eastern slope of the Dosso della Blesaccia. The first one follows the ski-lifts service dirt roads up to the Ristoro Costaccia and then it joins with the route n. 32 of this guidebook; the second one turns right just before the inn on the Way n. 159, crosses Plan de la Montanela and returns to the halfway station of Carosello 3000 and then to Livigno. In any case the views on the valley from Carosello 3000 lift and its descents are superb.You start from the car park in Plaza Placheda (1880 m _ sign Way n. 192) and immediately begin the long haul ahead on the dirt road, which passes past Tea del Pel (2000 m _ sign Way n. 157), gets to the halfway station of the cableway (2226 m) and at the end of a switchbacked climb reaches Carosello 3000 (2737 m). You begin the downhill ride always on the dirt road n. 163. You quickly reach the diversion at 2610 meters and take the single trail to the Cheseira da Fedaria (2210 m).
