Starting at the St. Moritz cross-country ski centre, this trail passes over the Lej Marsch before descending to the Lej da Champfèr and then over Lake Silvaplana to Sils. If you are still feeling fit, you can then make your way over the frozen Lake Sils and continue to Maloja. A fantastic winter hike amidst the icy Engadin lake scenery!
