This winter hiking trail in the Corviglia ski area invites you to enjoy the snow-covered landscape away from the pistes.

The trail starts at the Marguns mountain station and can easily be reached from Celerina by cable car. It is also a perfect continuation of the winter hiking trail from the Corviglia mountain station to Marguns, ideally after a culinary stop at the Chadafö restaurant.

Just a few metres after the start, you leave the ski area behind and soon find yourself in a magnificent winter landscape with views down to the Inn Valley and towards the Bernina Pass. The 3.6-kilometre-long trail continues slightly downhill and leads directly to the middle station at Chantarella, from where you can reach St. Moritz by funicular in just a few minutes.

The winter hiking trail is 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.

Safety information

Good footwear is a prerequisite for this path. The lower part through the forest is only a narrow path and more difficult to walk than the upper part. After a longer period without snowfall, the short steep passage between the antenna and the forest can be icy.
