Instead I traversed to the east following trail markers until reaching an apparent dirt road (under the snow). I turned south and descended to Casera del Medico and then back to the car. The Garmin had recorded only the first 9 seconds of the track. Then when I cranked the Mini it was dead. Luckily I'd parked on a slight down gradient so I let it slowly roll until it reached critical mass. That was close.
