Fixed orienteering training course on Furtschellas.
From the beginning of July to the end of August there will be 15 orienteering stations on the Furtschellas. These are normal orienteering stations without fixed installation and without timekeeping. The training area is located more than 2000 metres above sea level, which makes it ideal for altitude training. It starts directly from the middle station of the Furtschellas cable car.

Price:

Orienteering maps can be purchased at the Furtschellas cable car valley station for CHF 5 each. People with a valid mountain railway ticket can buy orienteering maps for CHF 2.50.

In addition, the information points in Sils, Silvaplana, St. Moritz, Celerina and Samedan, as well as the Schuler Bücher Wega bookshop in St. Moritz sell orienteering maps.
