The Val Müstair, home of cross-country skiing superstar Dario Cologna and his brother Gianluca, is located in the south-eastern corner of Graubünden and stretches between the Ofen Pass and the Italian Vinschgau. Thanks also to the popularity of the Cologna brothers, the area is increasingly becoming a cross-country skiing El Dorado. The challenging valley trail starts in Valchava. Near Fuldera, the track leads through the forest and then continues over the plain of Palüds. Always along the picturesque Rombach stream, it continues to Tschierv. The Tour de Ski, a cross-country skiing competition lasting several days, is a regular guest in Val Müstair. For the particularly hardy, the "Tour de Ski" trail at the end in Tschierv is the highlight of a perfect day of cross-country skiing. The trail here is particularly steep and demanding.
