Ride in complete comfort on board the mountain railways & cableways from Celerina or Signal up to Piz Nair, St. Moritz’s local mountain at 3,059 metres above sea level. A short break at the Panorama Restaurant is definitely worthwhile, not just for the fantastic panoramic views of the 3,000 metre peaks all around you and the Bernina Group, but also to acclimatise; after all, the superlative single-trail fireworks are just about to begin!
After an 800 m warm-up across the piste run, head off onto the single trail to Fuorcla Schlattain and through Vals Schlattain down to Lej Alv. Next up is a flat portion to the short section that requires you to push your bike, 80 m below Chamanna Saluver. The next trail section to the mountain station of the 3 Fluors chairlift is completely ridable and covers a further 200 m in altitude difference. The subsequent traverse directly below the three rocky outcrops that give the mountain its name (3 Fluors = 3 flowers) leads to the Selin mountain flank with the stunning view of the Engadin high plateau and the Bernina valley. The next trail via Padella and Alp Muntatsch to Bever is almost impossible to describe: you just have to ride it! From Bever take the main road back to Samedan, Celerina or St. Moritz.
The upper section of the tour takes you through high-alpine terrain. It should not be attempted in thick fog or snow. Warm clothing, rain protection and gloves are essential basic equipment. Never bike alone!
The route time does not include the ride up by mountain railway and/or cableway.

Incidentally, Danny MacAskill and Claudio Caluori started their road trip through Graubünden on Piz Nair. See it in the "Home of Trails" video.
