The approximately 2 km long circular trail in Zernez is ideal for leisurely cross-country skiing on the outskirts of the village of Zernez between the Spölbach stream and the edge of the forest. The Champatsch circuit starts at the wooden bridge in Prà da Punt, but can also be started at the sports and cross-country centre in the middle of Zernez and combined as desired with the night circuit, circular circuit and racing circuit.

Author’s recommendation

Refreshment options at the Center da Sport restaurant with direct access to the trails. Cross-country ski rental directly at the trail entrance.
