Just a few metres after the start you leave the ski area behind and soon find yourself in a magnificent winter landscape. The 3-kilometre-long trail leads mostly gently downhill and climbs just slightly at the very end. The leisurely hike takes about 1 hour.
If you want to hike for a little longer, turn right into the path from Marguns to the middle station Chantarella.
The winter hiking trails are open during the winter season, depending on snow conditions.
Note: The winter hiking trail is not a sledge run, the mountain railways do not transport sledges on Corviglia and Marguns. Exception: families are allowed to bring a sledge to pull their children along.
