Off piste ski guiding & touring
For good intermediates and experts, why not try some guided ski touring. Expert local guides will navigate you around the high mountain trails in safety taking you on an adventure around the spectacular peaks (called "piz" in the local Romansch language) of the Engadine and Graubünden valleys.
There are many possibilities starting from St Moritz with the tours tailored to suit the group's off-piste skiing ability and fitness. Some trips can be for several days and involve staying overnight in one of the mountain huts - an adventure not to be missed.
St Moritz to Davos ski tour - 6 days
This guided ski tour is one of the classics and known as the Albula. Starting at St Moritz, the route initially takes you towards the Suvretta pass and on to Chamanna Jenatsch. From there, you will encounter numerous glaciers such as Laviner, Grialetsch and Vallorgia before the final descent in to Davos via the Dischmatal valley.
This ski tour is virtually lift-less so a good level of fitness is required to scale the many peaks using skins, ropes and crampons in some cases - one of the best ski tours in the Alps.
Val Arlas ski tour - 1 day
If you are looking for some exceptional off-piste powder skiing and dont want to spend a night in a mountain hut, this guided ski tour is perfect. Starting from the top of the Diavolezza, you ski towards Sass Qued via Piz Trovat and then the Val Arlas bowl opens up before you.
This huge semi-circular bowl is steep and generally has excellent snow conditions where you can "surf" through the deep powder all the way down to Alp Bondo Sur. From here, you follow the the cross-country trails that take you to the Lagalb lift which is where you get the bus back to the Diavolezza.
