A snowshoe trek on a marked trail high above the Engadin lake landscape is something you can only experience on the Corvatsch. On the Furtschellas, snowshoe trekkers have one marked trail.
The trail is marked with wooden posts (pink), and is therefore well suited to anyone who would like to experience snowshoe trekking in safety.
The Lake Trail has now been turned into a circular snowshoe walk in winter. It starts at the Furtschellas middle station and, after a steep climb to start with, goes over fairly flat terrain to the Ustaria Rabgiusa, where the large sunshine terrace will tempt you in to relax. After some well-deserved refreshment, you do another short climb before going back down to the Furtschellas middle station.

Enjoy some team spirit and fun with a ski race organized specially for you. The Swiss Ski School Corvatsch organizes ski races for companies, clubs and teams. These races for visitors always take place on the Grialetsch Furtschellas-Corvatsch slope. Everything is provided that a professional ski race needs: lists of starters, a giant slalom course, digital timing, rankings, a loudspeaker system, an award ceremony, a section for the real pros, a rescue service and much more. Whether you want an announcer, a drinks party, medals, a second race over a different course: practically anything is possible.
Breathtaking panoramic views of the Bernina range and the lakes of the Upper Engadin valley. The middle station Murtèl and the glacier of the Piz Corvatsch (3303 meters above the sea level) are at your disposal and the glacier is probably the highest startplace in Europe.
