Ride in complete comfort on board the mountain railways & cableways from Celerina or St. Moritz up to Piz Nair, St. Moritz’s local mountain at 3,059 metres above sea level. A short break at the Panorama Restaurant is definitely worthwhile, not just for the fantastic panoramic views of the 3,000 metre peaks all around you and the Bernina Group, but also to acclimatise; after all, the superlative single-trail fireworks are just about to begin! After an 800 m warm-up across the piste run, the trail begins on the right as it leads off to Lej da la Pêsch and the Suvretta Pass. From the Suvretta Pass the route is signposted as No. 671.

This is where the flowing section of the trail begins as it winds its way down for some 6 km through the magnificent mountain trough of the Val Suvretta. In Val Bever the trail continues along a well-maintained gravel track, but the waves along the way are still lots of fun! Restaurant Spinas is the perfect spot to chill out before continuing along the gravel track to Bever and the main road back to Celerina.
