Sass Queder winter walk

Sass Queder winter walk

 open  partly open   closed 

The route of this trail is shown by means of red-and-white striped markings. It starts from the Berghaus Diavolezza, leads along the ski piste for a few metres, past the Piz Trovat with its summer via ferrata, and up to the top station of the glacier chairlift. The spectacular views, even more than the climb, take your breath away: reaching far into the Austrian Alps, they take in dramatic peaks such as the Piz Kesch and the Piz Linard.

Of the Italian summits, the most striking is the Ortler, while behind you, the famous Piz Palü and Piz Bernina rise up dramatically. Good walking boots are essential for this path, which is only prepared with shovels.
