Easy, mostly downhill winter hike from Ftan down to Scuol. The initially flat path along the sun offers views of the Lower Engadine Dolomites and Tarasp Castle opposite.

De l'arrêt CarPostal de Ftan, cumün, on traverse le village pour rejoindre le quartier voisin de Ftan Pitschen. À l'extrémité est du village, le chemin de randonnée d'hiver préparé longe le versant sud enneigé et ouvert en direction de l'est. Ici, la vue s'étend sur les dolomites de Basse-Engadine situées en face et sur le château de Tarasp qui trône fièrement sur la colline du château. Après avoir traversé le Val Corgnanca, le sentier longe la lisière d'une petite forêt (attention à la zone de protection de la faune - ne pas quitter les sentiers) avec vue sur l'Inn et les montagnes enneigées. Jusqu'ici, le chemin est majoritairement plat, avec par endroits de courts passages plus raides. Avant de traverser la piste de ski, il est possible soit de prendre le raccourci directement vers la station de départ en longeant un peu la piste et la route alpine, soit de prendre le chemin moins raide vers le vieux quartier de Scuol «Vi».
