From the PostBus stop Ftan, cumün approx. 300 m in the direction of the western exit of the village, at Kinderland Sainas is the trail entrance. On initially rather flat terrain, you reach the car park at the level of the Hotel Paradies. After crossing the road, the actual "Loipa Dario Cologna" begins. The trail first leads into the forest for a short distance. Over several steps, the trail quickly gains altitude and reaches the Ftan High Alpine Institute. Once on the plateau, you can really enjoy the winter landscape in the picturesque surroundings.

The descents of the circular trail are equally entertaining and no less challenging. Even if the almost 100 metres in altitude seem daunting at first glance, the trail is a beautiful winter experience for skating and classic.

As a small loop, this trail is also available as a night trail. The light switch for the night trail is at the wooden hut near the car park (direction Ardez). After switching on, the light burns for one 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.
