Ski tour in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site with the option of an overnight stay in the winter room of the Sardona Hut SAC and long descent to Bargis. The Sardona Hut can only be visited under safe conditions. Because of the game resting areas in the Calfeisen valley and the hunting ban area Graue Hörner, the beautiful crossing to Weissenannen is not allowed.

From the Segnes hut (2108 m) to the north over the ridge up to Plaun Segnas Sura. All further gently ascending the wide valley up to Glatschiu dil Segnas and towards the Sardona Pass. The following descent is the least steep if you leave P. 2757 on the right and descend to about 2790 to the Sardona glacier. About in the middle of Sardona Glacier turn right (southeast) and descend either on the safe ridge or (looking for better snow) a little south of it in the valley to P. 2328. Head northeast to the hut. The steep slopes above the hut can be prone to avalanche.

From the Sardonapass you can also ski directly to E, on steep slopes to the Chäsboden and the Sardonahütte, provided that conditions are safe (30-35° to 600 Hm, ZS-). 

Details about the winter room: If not maintained, the winter room is open for self-catering. In winter the water is turned off. COVID-19: RESERVATION ALSO DURING UNATTENDED TIME OBLIGATORY!Info on the website of the hut/section 

 

The way back leads over the Sardona Glacier Route up to the Sardona Pass and along the ascent route to the Segenshütte or to the Trinserhorn in SÖ direction continuously ascending to the summit degree. After another 31 meters of altitude difference along the ridge, you reach the highest point of the ski tour at 3027 m.a.s.l.. For the descent through the western flank, perfect and safe conditions have to prevail. A great slope just over 40 degrees inclination promises a racy descent. From there you follow the ascent route to Segneshütte or take the rewarding descent to Bargis via Fuorcla Raschagluis. Alternatively, summit tours to the Piz Segnas and Piz Sardona are possible.
