This permanent route for ski tourers takes them from the Diavolezza valley station beside or off the piste right up to the top station, covering a vertical distance of about 890 metres. This ground-breaking project provides a safe and clearly marked way for ski tourers to train. These athletic visitors can hand in their bags at the valley station. When they reach their destination at the top of Diavolezza, their bags will be waiting for them at the ticket office at the Diavolezza top station.

The "Diavolezza Challenge" ski touring route can only be used with a valid ticket (valid ski pass or Diavolezza Challenge ticket).

Author’s recommendation

Enjoy a well-deserved break on the viewing platform or on the sun terrace of the Berghaus.
