Try a new adventure with the SNOOC snowshoe sled in the heart of the Lavin forest, by hiking up with the snowshoe Snooc and then slide an amazing toboggan run
Distance 2.8 km
Highest point1,747 m
Lowest point1,454 m
From the train station the path leads in the direction of the church to the eastern end of the village. The railway line and Engadinerstrasse are underpassed at the underpass. Here begins the ascent over 300 meters of altitude difference to Charnadüras. At the first turn-off after the last farm in Lavin, follow the signs to the right to Charnadüras. Always following the path, you will pass through the forest over several hairpin bends. At the clearing at point 1609 the view opens up to Lavin and the Lower Engadine down towards Guarda and Ardez. After two more hairpin bends you leave the forest and reach the clearing of Charnadüras. At the point where the terrain becomes flatter and the prepared winter hiking trail ends, the descent begins on the same path as the ascent. Be especially careful of the 180-degree bends, as these are preceded by long descents. A special feature of this toboggan run is that you can practically drive all the way to the village and the way to the restaurants, hotels and the railway station is not far away.On the Schilttelweg there is also a barbecue area that can be used all year round. Here you have a great view and there is a hut to sit inside.
Remember to book your Snooc in advance at the resort
