On Mountain Dining
The Berghaus Diavolezza serves treats from the she-devil's kitchen! Either out on the sunshine terrace, reclining on a deckchair, or in the restaurant, you can enjoy delicious speciality dishes accompanied by breathtaking views of the glacier.
In winter, the 10km long glacier descent on the Morteratsch Glacier is regarded as an absolute highlight. The Glüna Plaina – full-moon skiing – is also a must for adventurer.
Most Difficult Runs
When the full moon (“Glüna Plaina” in Romansh) lights up the landscape, the mountain restaurant Diavolezza calls for dinner with a follwoing moonlight descent across quiet slopes to the valley. Simply “fabulus”, say locals in Romansh, which means like a fable or fairy tale – and that means that you shouldn`t miss this experience.
