Take the chairlift at the valley station of Brigels (Brigels-Dorf) to get to the starting point of the Pradas winter hike "Crest Falla". You have to walk uphill for the first few meters to the starting point. If you're already in the mood for a hot drink or lunch, you can hike a little higher to the Burleun mountain restaurant in just a few minutes.

Once on the groomed alpine road, the actual descent tour towards Brigels begins. The views of the other side of the Surselva valley are so beautiful that you could easily miss the many turnoffs. It is best to take a quick look at this route at each intersection. But actually, the path always leads downhill and always towards Brigels. The end of the tour is at the Flembach near Sogn Martin and not at the valley station of the cable cars. However, you can get back to the valley station via the village road.

If you like it more sporty, you are welcome to take the route uphill.


Once you have arrived on the winter hiking trail, you have the opportunity to discover the various animal tracks in the deep snow. From hares to deer, various tracks are visible. Know which track belongs to which animal. If not, take the opportunity later when you arrive in the village to ask a local hunter or farmer.


In case of uncertain weather conditions, the tour should be avoided. Weather changes in the mountains are frequent. If a bad weather front or similar comes up during the hike, you should turn back in time. Even in dense fog we advise against the hike. 

Please note that the route is partly accompanied by the toboggan run. Do not let yourself be disturbed and keep strongly to the left or right of the path in such situations.


Catering with a hot drink, high and sturdy hiking boots or winter boots, warm clothing, sun protection, hiking poles are an advantage.
