Small but nice – a fitting description of the cross-country ski trail on Chur’s home mountain, the Brambrüesch. The short loop trail over the plateau offers a cross-country skiing experience with a view of the Grisons mountain range.

You can reach the winter resort of Chur in just about 15 minutes from the centre of Switzerland’s oldest town. The Brambrüesch plateau is at an altitude of precisely 1000 metres above the canton’s capital. The view deep into the Rhine valley of Chur and the panorama of the Grisons mountain range will impress you here.

The mountain ridge stretching between Chur and the historically significant Dreibündenstein offers among other attractions a cross-country ski trail for any level of skill. The short trail is situated on the high plateau of Brambrüesch between the station of the gondola and the station of the ski lift. The scenery is idyllic with trees and forest glades with panorama into the Schanfigg valley with its pristine Walser villages and the mountain ranges around Arosa and Lenzerheide.
