This cross-country ski track is initially slightly uphill until you leave the village of Pontresina. Then there are no more climbs on the way to the Hotel Restaurant Morteratsch. Once you get there, it is well worth visiting the restaurant's sunny terrace to enjoy the wonderful panoramic view of the Bernina Group.

The connecting trail from Morteratsch railway station in the direction of the Morteratsch Glacier is also worth doing.
