6. Description, location and how to get there
Passionate, hot-cold, diabolic beauty
Named after a fabulous creature, the Diavolezza at the Morteratsch-Glacier offers visitors a mountain experience of its own kind. Not only passionate skiers during glacier or moon-light downhills can feel the fascinacting atmosphere of the Oberengadin, but also the many ski tourers will make this unique experience by having the „Ball room of the Alps“ inclusive Piz Palm and Piz Bernina in permanent sight. The „Berghaus Diavolezza“ is located on 3’000 Meter and can be reached easily via the cable car from the valley station at the Berninastrasse.
The „Berghaus“ has a long-standing history. From here, many years ago, some very brave climbers started their approaches for the first ascents of highest summits of the East Alpes. And it is said that many years before that, a beautiful red-haired devil had also lived up there.
THE DIAVOLEZZA CHALLENGE
For ambitioned ski tourers there will be a new great offer from this winter on: The «Diavolezza Challenge». This permanent SkiMo track will lead next and off-piste over 1.000 metres vertical climb from the valley station Diavolezza up to the mountain station. This pioneering project offers ski tourers for the first time a marked and secure training possibility.
Another service: athlets can leave their luggage at the valley station. While running, the luggage will be sent to the top of Diavolezza. And at arrival, it is then already waiting in the restaurant. This great service can be booked for CHF 22,-. The individual track time can be taken via the free-of-charge Corvatsch Diavolezza Lagalb App. All users of this App will automatically take part in a sweapstake to win attractive prizes. Additionally, this permanent Skitouring track is also open for trainings once a week in the evening.
