Energy-conserving climbs, controlled downhills
At Skiservice Corvatsch, you can rent high-quality touring skis with skins. Touring skis are light yet robust. The weight savings help you conserve your energy on the way up, while special skins give you a more solid footing and make uphill progress easier. Despite their low weight, touring skis provide a stable, smooth run on the way back down, even on an unstable surface.
Here with us, you can also rent ski-touring boots to go with your touring skis. They are specially adapted to the bindings of touring skis and very lightweight. This enables easy forward progress, stable footing and a comfortable striding motion. Having reached your destination, you can close the boots and bindings so that you have a firm grip and central stance on the skis as you ski downhill.

Our team gives you outstanding tips to help you choose your route
The Engadin lends itself to ski touring better than perhaps anywhere else. Nestled amid countless peaks above 3’000 meters, you can conquer virtually all of the nearby mountains with touring skis and skins. You will need a significant degree of stamina for the ascent and some skiing expertise for the ride back down.
For rookies, there are shorter routes that are not quite as difficult; for example, the tours to the Piz Lagrev, Piz Surgonda and Piz Dal Sasc. While the ascents do include steeper, more strength-sapping passages, the tours as a whole are also possible for more casual ski tourers.
Even ambitious ski tourers will work up a sweat on the tour to the top of Piz Palü: At a total length of over 15 kilometers, the tour leads into high-alpine terrain and elevations of almost 4'000 meters. Your reward is incomparable scenery and a magical downhill ride, alternating between hard ice at the very top and loose powder farther down. A must for all winter endurance athletes.
For all tours away from the secured pistes, skiers must exercise extreme caution due to the risks posed by avalanches and crevasses, while suitable equipment is an absolute must. Our teams will be happy to give you valuable tips on how to prepare for your tour, along with contact information for experienced mountain guides and snow sports instructors who might be available to accompany you on your tours.
