From Pontresina, Diavolezza is easy to reach by car, bus or the Rhaetian Railway. At 3000 m a.s.l., Diavolezza affords splendid views of the highest mountain peaks of the Eastern Alps – including Piz Bernina.
Thanks to the altitude and its ideal location, the ski area of Diavolezza is open from October to early May, depending on snow conditions. The popular and exciting ski slope and freeride area does not leave any wish unfulfilled. Off-piste skiing requires expert knowledge and the necessary safety equipment, those who go off-piste do so at their own risk.
Guided off-piste skiing and ski tours:
The 10 km glacier descent run to Morteratsch is the place to go for experienced skiers and snowboarders as well as telemark skiers with stamina. The return journey is by Rhaetian Railway to the valley station of the Diavolezza cableway.
Glüna Plaina means "full moon" in Romansh. During high season, it is possible to enjoy night-time skiing once a month. The brightly illuminated mountain station and the gentle light of the moon point the way down the slopes of Diavolezza back to the valley.
This mountain restaurant is renowned for its good food and the exquisite view over the surrounding mountain ranges. Anyone wanting to spend the night on the mountain can choose between tidy rooms with between 1 and 4 beds or a simple dormitory. Visitors can relax particularly well after their day's exertions in Europe's highest jacuzzi.
A stone' throw from Diavolezza lies the ski area of Lagalb. The mountain is especially popular because of its challenging ski slopes and magnificent deep snow slopes. Freeriders can leave their tracks in the fresh powder or enjoy the superb alternative route to La Rösa.
The areas of Lagalb and Diavolezza are located right next to each other. A free Pendolino transports visitors from one mountain to the next. There is also a "pony" lift, which takes visitors directly to the valley station of Lagalb.
