From the PostBus stop Ftan, cumün approx. 300m toward the western end of the village, the entrance to the cross-country ski run is located at the Kinderland Sainas. You will reach the car park at Hotel Paradies on initially rather flat terrain. After crossing the road, the actual "Loipa Dario Cologna" begins. The cross-country ski run leads into the forest for a short stretch. Over several steps the trail quickly gains height and reaches the HIF Swiss International School and Sports Academy. Once on the plateau, you can truly enjoy the winter landscape in picturesque surroundings. The downhill runs of the round track are just as entertaining and no less demanding. Even if the almost 100 metres in elevation seem daunting at first, the cross-country ski run is a great winter experience for lovers of skating and classic skiing. Also available as a night cross-country ski run (small loop): light switch for night cross-country ski run at the wooden cabin near the car park (direction Ardez).

After switching it on, the light burns for 1 hour and then switches off automatically.


The trail below the HIF Swiss International School and Sports Academy also serves as a training ski run for the talented young athletes of the HIF's sports class. Top athletes such as the brothers Dario and Ginaluca Cologna have trained here.


Attention: The trail may have icy spots on the descents. The trail is regularly groomed when conditions are good. Please note the condition reports in the winter sports report. The trail was assessed in favourable weather conditions, the current snow and weather conditions must be observed before starting.
