Perhaps it has long since ceased to be an insider tip that the Zuoz-Pizzet/Albanas ski area is ideal for families and for those who want to make their turns on the slope away from the hustle and bustle.
On the sun-drenched slopes of Zuoz's local mountain, Pizzet (2465 m), snow sports-loving families are in particularly good hands. The area is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced skiers and snowboarders. Five lifts take care of transport to the next downhill pleasure on perfectly groomed slopes. The special child-safe chairlift Chastlatsch allows even small children from 4 years of age to get safely up the mountain without adult accompaniment.
Special attractions are the Gian Plaiv Fun Slope, the timed slope, and the Snow Park.
Had your fill of skiing? Then how about a round of sledding? For this you only need to change your sports equipment because the 1.5-kilometer-long toboggan run is located in the family ski area of Zuoz. You can reach the start on foot or comfortably with the chairlift Chastlatsch. The fun starts right at the top station.
Don't have your own sled with you? No problem! You can rent a sled at the Rent Station Chastlatsch.
The Madulain-Zuoz Ice Path embodies the romantic image of ice skating in a snow-covered meadow landscape. It leads along the Inn River from Zuoz to Madulain on a length of about 2.5 kilometers. The trail is nestled perfectly into the sun-drenched landscape. Whether romantically hand in hand, pushing a baby carriage, or pulling the sled behind you - going up and down the path is great fun. And you will notice, after a few rounds, you can cross exercise off your to-do list for the day because the fun works on your legs too. Weather permitting, in January and February, there is also full moon skating - it doesn't get more romantic than that!
Also in the village center there is more fun on two skates. The Purtum Ice Rink is located next to the Swiss Snow Kids Village with its family-friendly restaurant. For all skating enthusiasts it is illuminated in the evenings in February.
It is unhurried, relaxing, and simply beautiful - winter hiking is a popular sport and in the Engadin you will find the best conditions to practice the activity.

If you want to go higher, you can go to the Alp Es-cha Dadour and sled from there back to Madulain. Fun for the whole family!
