Ride in complete comfort on board the mountain railways & cableways from St. Moritz 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 Val 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 Trais 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 (Trais Fluors = three 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 Samedan is almost impossible to describe: you just have to ride it! From Samedan take the main road back to Celerina or St. Moritz.

Kurze aber schöne Tour. Bei der Alp Muntatsch folgte ich dem Wanderweg nach Samedan (Pt. 2187).

Ich finde es eine absolute Frechheit, dass diese Tour noch auf der Website aufgeführt ist. Wir haben die Tour von Corviglia zum kleinen See etwas oberhalb begonnen, da der Start auf dem Piz Nair meiner Frau im Video zu exponiert aussah. Es beginnt mit einem harter aber schönen Aufstieg mit hohem Trailanteil und dann ca. 150hm Trail runter. Der Rest vom Trail wurde leider zerstört. Zuerst ist es ein absolut eingeebneter Weg ("Flowtrail" ohne Wellen, Steilwandkurven oder Sprüngen) und danach ein Kiesweg. Der einzige Wanderweg auf dem Weg hat ein neues Bikeverbot. Es lohnt sich daher absolut nicht mehr. Es ist eine absolute Frechheit, dass diese Tour noch auf der Website von St. Moitz aufgeführt ist. Aus meiner Sicht ist das vorsätzlicher Betrug um Tickets zu verkaufen. Die wissen ja, dass da kein Trail mehr ist und führen es als coolen Trail auf der Homepage. Auch im gedruckten Plan ist sie aufgeführt. Wir haben einen Ferientag und CHF 120 für die Tickets verloren. Landschaftlich ist es aber sehr schön.
