Corvatsch - North face Map

This steep, North-facing route is very exposed, high risk and needs careful preparation and understanding of the weather conditions. It is also the home of Engadin Snow Contest.


From the Bergstation you will require to perform a short rappel and therefore require 20 metres of rope. From here, take off your skis and walk almost exactly North along the ridge towards the peak. From here enter the right hand couloir which faces North West. You will be straight in to the line and will have to use steep skiing techniques before keeping high and left to have the best route back down to the piste system. The couloir changes in width to around 4 metres at it's most narrow and over 40 degrees for short periods. The route opens up in to more forgiving terrain and from here you should point towards the Gondolda for the best route back to the Alp Margun piste.



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
