Ski touring

Val Arlas

She is regarded as one of the most beautiful ski tours of all. Starting from the Diavolezza top station, it leads you from the Diavolezza Firn past the Piz Trovat to Sass Queder. As soon as the hollow of Val Arlas opens, it is necessary to hold the height up until you reach the fourcla.  The semicircular hollow has slopes facing east, north and west – and, whatever the position of the sun, she offers a good line for powder experts, all the way to Alp Bondo Sur. From here, the cross-country ski trail shows the way back to the Lagalb connecting lift. Where the bus returns regulary to the valley station of Diavolezza.

Altitude difference: 837m
