Leaving the mountain village of Vnà in northerly direction, the winter hiking trail leads along the edge of the forest through the snow-covered terraced landscape slightly up into Val Sinestra. From here you can enjoy views of the 2963 metre Piz Spadla on the opposite side of the valley and Piz Mottana to the north. After about 2.5 kilometres the path turns left and now runs slightly downhill through the snow-covered forest. After crossing the river La Brancla, the trail continues in westerly direction to Zuort, a gently ascending clearing in the midst of Val Sinestra.

The mountain restaurant and hotel "Hof Zuort" offers delicious regional dishes as well as overnight accommodation in one of its historic rooms. The return path is along the same route.
