Countless hiking options for casual and hardcore hikers alike and with slopes perfectly prepared for snow sports, available until the end of April, you won’t need much encouragement to get active on Corvatsch.
Corvatsch has numerous hiking trails and an impressive 120 kilometres of slopes. The mountain station here at 3,303 metres above sea level is the highest in the canton of Graubünden, and it’s also home to the highest whisky distillery in the world. In summer, you can enjoy the peace of the hiking trails, and in winter you can let off some steam at the Corvatsch Park and during the Snow Night. There are also various exciting events on offer, such as the Freestyle World Cup season final and the Spring Festival. In winter 2025, the Corvatsch Park will host the halfpipe and slopestyle events of the FIS Freestyle World Championships in Engadin.
Corvatsch in winter
For people who love snow sports, Corvatsch is a dream come true: because it is located in just the right spot, it has powder until the end of April. Every Friday night here is Snow Night: a night when you can ski on the longest illuminated slope in Switzerland.
Have you ever dreamed of spending the evening carving turns in the snow on a slope that has been prepared just for you? Well, you can have that experience by booking the Snow Night slope for your own private use or for your event – it’s available any evening apart from Fridays. Families and those who are looking for some peace and quiet will be right at home in Furtschellas with its great slopes and gorgeous views of the frozen Lake Sils. Although every single run on the 120 kilometres of slopes here is perfectly groomed, only one run has the honour of being called “the king of ski runs”: the Hahnensee run down to St. Moritz is one of Engadin’s most legendary runs. And if you’re looking for a bite to eat, Corvatsch/Furtschellas has various restaurants, all serving great food.
Enjoy a relaxed meal at the highest restaurant in Graubünden or in an alpine hut, relax on the sunny terraces and marvel at the views – there are so many great places to stop for a while on Corvatsch and in Furtschellas.
Two cable cars take you all the way up Corvatsch to 3,303 metres above sea level, where you can enjoy the incredible 360-degree panoramic views. At this altitude, it can get pretty windy. Thankfully, you can enjoy the panoramic views out of the wind from behind the windows in the cosy Restaurant 3303.
Connoisseurs of the finer things in life will love the Via Gastronomica trail and the guided tour of the ORMA Whisky distillery. The Via Gastronomica is an easy hike that takes you from the Furtschellas middle station down into Val Fex and to Sils, with plenty of opportunities to stop off at carefully selected restaurants along the way. The Water Trail featuring the six Lejins (that’s Romansh for “lakes”) will astound hikers both young and old. If you start out from the Murtèl middle station, you can quickly reach Fuorcla Surlej, which has magnificent panoramic mountain views. It’s very easy to extend this hike, for example by going into Val Roseg, to the Chamanna Coaz mountain hut or to the Hahnensee lake.
