Ski touring & mountaineering

Ski tours & mountaineering

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.

All you need for your ice adventure

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. You want to conquer our mountains? mountain sports without adrenalin is Disneyland.
