Three mountains, one landscape of fairy-tale mountain scenery

Seven months of skiing, five months of summer activities and one cable car service open 365 days a year – this is the fairy-tale mountain scenery of Corvatsch, Diavolezza and Lagalb. 

The Upper Engadin skiing and hiking areas of Corvatsch AG and its partner company Diavolezza Lagalb AG are situated around the 4,408-metre mountain Piz Bernina, the only peak above 4,000 metres in the canton of Graubünden. On the western side of Piz Bernina, mighty Piz Corvatsch looms majestically. Its mountain station is the highest in Graubünden at 3,303 metres above sea level. On the eastern side of Piz Bernina lie Diavolezza and Lagalb.

Our shared story

1 June 2017 – a mountain swap: Piz Nair for Diavolezza Lagalb

Around this time, the Lagalb skiing area, which belonged to Engadin St. Moritz Mountains AG, was due to be closed for financial reasons. There was an uproar from local and non-local Lagalb fans alike. After a period of uncertainty, a solution was found to keep Lagalb going. That solution was a mountain swap. 

The transport facilities and catering businesses of Luftseilbahn Corviglia-Piz Nair AG, founded in 1952, are located in the Corviglia skiing area. These were transferred to Engadin St. Moritz Mountains AG and in return, Luftseilbahn Corviglia-Piz Nair AG received the facilities and ancillary businesses that belonged to the Diavolezza and Lagalb area. At the same time, Luftseilbahn Corviglia-Piz Nair AG was renamed Diavolezza Lagalb AG. The current shareholders of Piz Nair AG became the owners and proprietors of Diavolezza Lagalb AG. This solution was in part made possible thanks to the Niarchos family, who owned the majority of shares in Luftseilbahn Corviglia-Piz Nair AG. Since then, Diavolezza Lagalb AG and Corvatsch AG have been partner companies.
