Chamanna Coaz Trail

Chamanna Coaz Trail

The hike from Corvatsch Mittelstation Murtèl across Fuorcla Surlej to Pontresina is one of the top hikes in St Moritz. As you can tell from the photos it was a perfect day. Since this was my first day in the mountains I forgot to apply sunscreen to all exposed skin, and not for the first time. I didn't go all the way to the Chamanna Coaz. I had a late start, because I first took the gondola to the Corvatsch Bergstation. From Hotel Roseg it is still a good hour and fifteen minutes to Pontresina. Unfortunately I found out too late that you can rent a mountain bike at Hotel Roseg. There are no signs at the hotel and it didn't occur to me to inquire. So that is two lessons learned.
