The Ski Resort

The ski resort of Diavolezza-Lagalb is located at the Swiss canton of Grisons. Gondolas get you to the top stations of the opposing mountains Diavolezza and Lagalb. From October through May, you get to ski a total of 32 kilometres of groomed slopes here. A connecting slope joins Diavolezza and Lagalb.

From Diavolezza's top station, red and black runs get you back to the valley. The runs round chair Gletschersesselbahn as well as the base run are also suited to families. Beginners and children can take their first steps on skis at the magic carpet in the base area.

Lagalp, on the other hand, is only suitable for experienced skiers and snowboarders. Switzerland's longest glacier run, taking you 10 kilometres to Morteratsch, is a special challenge. Furthermore, there are also opportunities for back-country skiing. Before you make your way from Lagalb to La Rösa, or from Diavolezza to Val Alras, you can go to the Freeride Checkpoint next to Diavolezza top station to inquire about the conditions.
