Description

From Lavin train station, the path first descends into the village centre and follows the signs to Chamonna Linard at the western end of the village. Traversing under the Engadine road and the train tracks you reach the Crusch plain. The tour continues slightly uphill to the vantage point above the loading station at the Vereina tunnel. Every half hour or 20 minutes you can watch the busy loading and unloading of the car trains at this major Engadine traffic junction. The return journey is along the same route.

Geheimtipp

The name Lavin orginates from the Roman "labi" which means landslide or avalanche. This is obvious by looking up to the steep slopes and gullies of Piz Chapisun which rises to the north of the path. Today, the slopes are secured by state-of-the-art technology. If you look closely, you can see the avalanche towers that can trigger avalanches by remote control on the uppermost visible rocks above the path.

Sicherheitshinweis

The trail is groomed after each snowfall. Please note the condition reports in the winter sports report. The tour was assessed in favourable weather conditions, current snow and weather conditions must be noted before starting.
