Details

Description

From Zernez the ski run initially leads across the snow-covered plains above the Inn at the eastern end of the village. Shortly after the Chasuot farm, the valley narrows considerably and you enter the forest. The trail now runs directly along the Inn, and after a few small ascents and descents through the forest you again reach open terrain before arriving in Susch. In Susch you cross the village on foot for a few metres. After Susch you soon reach a small wooded area and a short ascent follows. The ski run continues mostly along the edge of the forest to Lavin and on over the beautiful fields near Planturen and Cuas. Shortly before you reach Giarsun the trail leads down to the Inn and after crossing the river on the other side of the valley back up to Giarsun, the end point of the ski run. If you wish, you can add the additional loop below Guarda train station as another highlight.
