Description

Stage six makes a straight up start from Sils-Maria through the forest. A long traverse looks down on the blue lake Silvaplana below and wraps beneath the point of Piz Corvatsch. The climb to Fuorcla Surlej gets steeper passing under the Murtèl lift infrastructure. From the busy pass, the trail angles toward Chamanna Coaz, but cuts toward Roseg after the first switchbacks. It’s a gradual downhill out of the idyllic Val Roseg along a popular path, and smooth running all the way into Pontresina.
