As the highest ski area in the Grisons, the Corvatsch has more than earned the title of sports mountain with its 120 kilometres of slopes, a snowpark, freeride area and secured snowshoe trails. Other highlights are powder snow until the end of April and the longest floodlit night downhill run in Switzerland.
Access to the ski area is via the middle station of the Surlej cable car to the top station of the Corvatsch. The Furtschellas cable car transports winter sports enthusiasts from Sils to the ski area. As well as perfectly prepared slopes, a variety of experiences await winter sports enthusiasts on the Corvatsch.
Every Friday, there is a “Snow Night”, where you are invited to enjoy night skiing on the longest illuminated slope in Switzerland. The 4.2-km-long run opens at 7:00 p.m.
Known as “freestyle heaven”, the impressive Corvatsch Park snowpark is equipped with a halfpipe, bag jump and obstacle downhill. The snowpark is one of the largest in the Alpine region and is the venue for international competitions.
King of the downhills from the Corvatsch is the “Hahnensee route” – the 9-km-long black slope with its unparalleled panorama leads right down to St. Moritz Bad.
Family- and beginner friendly
Families and beginners start in the Cristins family ski area located just at the bottom of the Corvatsch lift. Equipped with a magic carpet and a button lift, Cristins is the ideal beginners’ area with perfect nursery slopes. The Corvatsch-Pontresina Swiss Ski School offers lessons.
Right next to it, the Furtschellas ski area with its wide slopes offers ideal conditions for beginners and those who like to ski at a leisurely pace. Furtschellas is linked to the Corvatsch by the Curtinella six-seater chairlift. The “Lake Trail” on the Furtschellas is the perfect place for snowshoe hikers.
Eating on the Corvatsch & Furtschellas
The highest Whisky distillery in the world can be found in the ORMA on the Corvatsch at 3,303 m above sea level. There is also a wide range of mountain restaurants and huts dotted throughout the entire ski area:
It’s all about corn at the Restaurant 3,303 – the highest restaurant in the Grisons canton offers a variety of unusual polenta-based dishes. The self-service restaurant at the Murtèl middle station, on the other hand, tempts you with a sun terrace and playground, with crispy pizzas from the wood-fired oven. The Alpetta serves fine Alpine specialties and barbecued meat. A secret tip on Furtschellas is La Chüdera. Self-service and à la carte service meets sun terrace offering a stunning view over Lake Sils. Ustaria Rabgiusa in the middle of the ski area serves Valtellina specialties. Guests of the Kuhstall eat in cosy ambience in the former Alpine stable, and the Hahnensee Restaurant offers a small yet delicious menu in an idyllic location on the mountain. Après-ski fans can stop off at the Hossa Bar directly on the descent to Surlej.
