The 15 km long ski run is an extension of the Engadine Ski Marathon ski run from S-chanf to Zernez. It leads along the right side of the Inn mostly through the forest down to Zernez. Ascents/descents: 178 m/359 m.

Author’s recommendation

Take the train from Zernez to S-chanf and then enjoy the cross-country skiing back to Zernez, followed by a delicious piece of cake on the sun terrace of the Restorant Center da Sport.

Keine Wegweiser zum Startpunkt Bügls vorhanden. Fussmarsch etwa 15-20 Minute (1,3 km). Mittelschwere bis schwere Tour weil es viele kurze zum Teil steile Aufstiege hat und ein schmaler Weg ist.
