From the top station of the Scuol-Motta Naluns gondola lift, turn left along the pink-coloured winter hiking signs. Shortly afterwards you begin your ascent towards the mountain restaurant Chamanna Naluns. The path winds steadily uphill, along the piste and the snow park, where you can admire the jumps in the fun park. Just before reaching Chamanna Naluns, a slope has to be crossed before you arrive at the mountain restaurant with its sun terrace. Take the same route to return to the top station.
