Above and at the end of the village, you walk up the sledge run to Prazif (junction Via Engiadina, Alp Discholas). There you have beautiful panoramic vistas over the Lower Engadine mountain world. The perfect place to treat yourself to a snack before the descent begins.

Your sledge will take you rapidly back to Vnà.

Author’s recommendation

You can also extend the experience a little by following the lower winter hiking trail towards Ramosch until you reach Sursavuogn. There, at the turnoff, you continue directly up to Prazif, the start of the toboggan run.
