Skiing & Snowboarding

Powder thrills from dawn to dusk

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.

The famous north face

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.

With short ascents to the longest descents 

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.

Many regard this as the most beautiful of all ski tours.


First lines? Safety first!

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. All contents are compiled with the greatest possible care. The Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG and the authors assume no responsibility for the topicality, correctness and completeness of the information provided. Liability claims of any kind towards Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG and the authors are excluded.

Please follow these 3 tips on every trip:

  • Ideally stay on the freeride “itineraries” marked yellow on the piste map. These routes are secured before they are officially opened; if you venture away from one, you are entirely responsible for your own safety and must evaluate avalanche and accident danger yourself.
  • Only go freeriding away from the yellow “itineraries” if you have completed a course in avalanche awareness. Before every run, check the latest avalanche report www.slf.ch and make sure that you have a complete set of emergency rescue equipment with you. An avalanche transceiver, airbag, shovel and probe belong in every freeride backpack.
  • From danger level 3 minimum and above, please give the “powder kick” a miss and stay on the secured runs!

How to boost your chances enormously of a carefree day in powder snow? Easy! Book the company of a qualified mountain guide or ski instructor, who will not only show you the best runs but also guide you safely through the terrain.
