On Diavolezza/Lagalb and Corvatsch you will find heavenly conditions for freeriders - powder, cliffs, and endless slopes. It's not for nothing that the best freeriders in the world meet here every year to conquer the legendary Corvatsch north face!
Freeriding means skiing in its most primal form. It's like surfing on snow and the moment when your body releases countless happy hormones.
In addition to Diavolezza, the north slopes of Corvatsch also offer what you're looking for as a freerider. The terrain is challenging and the north face, which is up to 65 degrees steep, is the annual venue for the Engadinsnow Freeride Contest. While cracks will find rock-strewn slopes and gullies here, connoisseurs will opt for the wide deep snow slopes for more relaxed freeriding. Regardless of which type you belong to - safety first! Always be aware of avalanche conditions and never go off-piste without the necessary equipment.
In the Engadin, you can experience this untracked powder bliss especially in the deep snow areas of Diavolezza and Lagalb. Particularly spectacular: the tingling "1000-meter couloir" over Gianda Persa down to the Morteratsch glacier, a dream run of superlatives with rock kickers, cornice jumps, and seemingly endless deep snow slopes.
Pristine slopes, virgin powder: never forget that once you are away from secured routes ‒ even by just a few metres ‒ you are in untested terrain. When you ride these slopes, you are accepting not just the magnificent gift of unspoilt nature but also its enormous risks. Sound knowledge of avalanche dangers is indispensable, along with tested safety equipment and of course an advanced level of freeride skills.
Walking on and driving on alpine terrain requires good physical condition, serious preparation and technical knowledge in mountain sports. The inspection of the described routes is at your own risk.
