Small mountain, wide view.
You don't always have to be high up to get the overview, Piz Watles also offers a wide view.

The small and particularly family-friendly ski area of Watles is named after the unspectacular peak above the ski area. The peak itself may not be much more than an elevation in the north-facing ridge, but the view is well worth the climb. The starting point is the car park at the valley station of the cable car just above Prauml;majur. From here, the lift takes you quickly up to 2140m, where the actual winter hike to Piz Watles begins. From the mountain station, the well-signposted and levelled trail heads north past the ski slope and then the last few metres along the ridge to reach the summit in a few minutes. The descent follows the ascent path.
