The Madrisa tour starts in Klosters-Dorf. From there, the gondola lift on Madrisa, the new Schaffürggli chairlift and the Madrisa ironing lift are used to reach around 2500m. From the Madrisa ski area, cross east to the Schlappinerjoch (2203m) and then drive north down into the Valzifenztal. Through this valley you can reach Gargellen (1420m) in Montafon (Austria). By chairlift (Schafbergbahn) and ski lift (crystal lift) you get back to a height of 2200m. A short descent northwards along the valley descent to Gargellen, is followed by a 45-minute ascent to St. Antönier-Joch. 

A wonderful descent through the Alpeltitälli to St. Antönien completes the Madrisa round trip. What is a dreamy 3-day tour in summer can be experienced effortlessly in one day in winter.

After a well-deserved break in one of the cosy restaurants in St. Antönien, post buses drive to Küblis. There you can take the Rhaetian Railway back to Klosters-Dorf.


Rundtour tickets available online here or directly at the valley station of the Madrisa mountain railways in Klosters.
