The Prätschalp cross-country ski trail

A real highlight: the Prätschalp cross-country ski trail, surrounded by the mountains of Arosa and with a magnificent view of the original Schanfigg valley.

After a leisurely start on the Maran cross-country ski trail over an extensive, treeless flat section, a short, steep descent towards Schafwald awaits. The trail then leads flat through the Seebachtobel. This is followed by a longer ascent towards Prätschalp.

The trail first passes close to the Langwieser viewpoint. Here you can admire Langwies with its famous viaduct, the Mattjisch Horn and the Sapün and Fondei neighbouring valleys. Shortly before Prätschalp, the highest point of the trail is reached at just under 1,970 metres. Here, the cross-country skiers enjoy a view over the Schanfigg valley with its rustic Walser houses.

It is well worth taking a break before descending to the lower Prätschsee. The Nischensee is fed by the Prätschalpbach stream and drains underground, with the outflow later flowing into the Plessur. From the lake it is less than two kilometres back to Hof Maran.
