From Scuol, take the mountain railways to the Motta Naluns ski area and continue to the Mot da Ri mountain station (2582 m.a.s.l.). From the mountain station, traverse south-eastwards. The short ascent runs westwards to the Fuorcla Clünas hill (2724 m. a.s.l.) below the rock step, a ski depot is recommended. The short final ascent should be tackled on foot and leads over the north grade to Piz Clünas. (2793 m. a.s.l.) From the summit almost the entire Lower Engadine should be visible. Various downhill options back to the ski area or to Ftan. The corresponding wild rest zones must be observed.

Author’s recommendation

For advanced skiers, the descent into Val Tasna is recommended, but requires a safe avalanche situation and good visibility.
