Every mountain is a ski touring destination

The mountains of the Engadin are high, yet some of their slopes are usually gentle. That means you can scale almost every peak on touring skis. A single lifetime is definitely too short to ride all our mountains. We reveal which ski tours you really should not miss.

Under the spell of the Piz Palü

Some ski tours start right down in the village. Enthusiasts who like to save themselves a few vertical metres of ascent can take the funicular up to Muottas Muragl, or head up to the Julier Pass or Bernina Pass by bus, train or car. The Diavolezza, meanwhile, is the gateway to the “Ballroom of the Alps”: the high-altitude ascents of the Piz Palü (3,901 m) and the challenging Piz Bernina (4,049 m) enchant ski mountaineers from all over the world.

Snowy slopes, glorious views, thrilling descents

Anyone who has scaled a mountain on touring skis will recognise it ever after from far off. Discover the Engadin and its ski touring mountains yourself, too.

There is always wonderful snow somewhere

Our mountain guides know where conditions are good and safe. The Pontresina Mountaineering School offers one-day ski tours, avalanche awareness courses and freeride trips. Multi-day tours along Graubünden’s “Haute Route” are also popular, along with ski mountaineering ascents of the Piz Palü.

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.

The Swiss Council for Accident Prevention (BFU) has put the key rules of conduct in a useful PDF brochure.
