High-alpine skiing

From mid-October until late May the Diavolezza firn pistes offer outstanding conditions, with some of the long downhill runs taking you right down to the valley station.

Thanks to a ‘pony lift’ (beginner’s lift) you can also get a tow straight to the Lagalb, which the locals see as something of an insider’s tip – and snow fanatics as the most challenging mountain to ski. If there’s enough snow, why not venture out onto the longest glacier downhill run (10 km) in Switzerland, a dream for all snowsports enthusiasts: from the Berghaus Diavolezza down via the Pers and Morteratsch Glaciers to the sun terrace of the restaurant at the Morteratsch RhB railway station. Nothing’s more fascinating than riding this 45 minute downhill run through a wilderness of snow and ice!

For night hawks, there’s the [Glüna Plaina – full-moon skiing] on the Diavolezza. This moonlight run in the soft light of the Moon is simply fabulus, as they say in Romansh.
