At the Oberalp Pass, a short descent to Alp Milez awaits us first. Here we assemble the skins and follow the markings to the Maighelshütte, which we leave behind for the time being. It drags on until we can climb to the Maighels Glacier at the height of the Piz Alpetta. In regular bends we gain altitude, our destination, the Piz Borel, is right in front of us.  We head for the scharte on the far left and make ski depot. Now we cross the rocky and partly airy ridge to the summit. At the summit cross, great views await us to the north to the Oberalp Pass and to the south to the Ticino peaks. 

The descent over the snowy glacier is a dream, but unfortunately it passes far too quickly. And unfortunately, the valley floor is so flat that we have to mount the skins again. For this we have earned a Café Maighels in the Maighelshütte!  A special recipe of the house! As the last highlight of the day we climb the Piz Cavradi where more powder snow slopes await us down to Tschamut. From Chamut there is an hourly train in both directions.

Option 1: Ascent from Chamut

Option 2: Departure directly from Maighelshütte, without Piz Cavradi


Plan 2 day ski tour: 1st day Pazolastock-Maighelshütte, 2nd day Maighelshütte-Piz Borel


The restaurant Rheinquelle in Tschamut is closed (as of Dec. 2020)


Crampons are an advantage for the summit ridge between Piz Ravetsch and Piz Borel


From the Oberalp Pass we drive down to Alp Milez and follow the markings of the path to the Maighelshütte. But we always stay in the valley until we branch off at the height of the Piz Alpetta to the Maighels Glacier. In wide bends we reach the Scharte at the foot of the Piz Ravetsch. Here we make ski depot. We overcome the ridge to the summit and we go back the same way. Descent along the ascent track. The ascent to Piz Cavradi begins just behind the Maighelshütte. We cross the summit in an easterly direction and drive down the northern slopes to Chamut
