Hike, enjoy, let your thoughts wander

Winter hiking and snowshoeing on Muottas Muragl and Corviglia: enjoy the tranquillity and stunningly beautiful views.

The crunch of snow underfoot is the only sound far and wide. All around you, a dream dusted in glistening white. And the view – breathtaking! Below you, the Upper Engadin’s seemingly endless chain of lakes, above you, the snow-covered mountain peaks. This is winter hiking on Muottas Muragl. Winter could hardly be more beautiful.

Winter hikers will also find trails specifically for them on the ski mountain that is Corviglia. The trails will lead to enjoyable destinations, with stunning views along the way.



Winter hiking on Corviglia: Pure enjoyment

Corviglia - Marguns

Note:

  • Here you can see which winter hiking trails are open.
  • The winter hiking trail is not a sledge run, the mountain railways do not transport sledges on Corviglia and Marguns. Exception: families are allowed to bring a sledge to pull their children along.
  • As with all pedestrians who travel up to the ski area by mountain railway, we only sell return trips to winter hikers for legal reasons. The ticket price also includes the elaborate preparation, securing and maintenance of the paths.

Marguns - Chantarella

This one-hour winter hiking trail offers a beautiful view of the Upper Engadine and ends in a fairytale forest above St. Moritz.

Fit winter hikers can also make the trail from Chantarella up to Marguns, in which case the time is around 2 to 3 hours.

Note:

  • Here you can see which winter hiking trails are open.
  • Good footwear is a prerequisite for this path. The lower part through the forest is only a narrow path and more difficult to walk than the upper part. After a longer period without snowfall, the short steep passage between the antenna and the forest can be icy.

Chantarella - Salastrains - Chasellas/El Paradiso

From St. Moritz village to Chantarella you might just as well take the funicular. But then the sunny plateau of Salastrains comes into view. After the Heidi Cabin, one keeps the altitude and traverses comfortably over to the restaurant Chasellas and enjoys a fine meal.

The other possibility: You accept a few more white metres of altitude difference and walk from Salastrains through the tunnel under the World Cup runway to the Mountain Station Signal. From here it is only a stone's throw to the "Place to be": the stylishly relaxed "el paradiso" with its panorama terrace and alpine lifestyle cuisine.
