Piz Starlera (2734 m) über den alten Bergwerksweg
Piz Starlera (2734 m) thront hoch über Innerferrera. Kaum zu glauben, dass es dort oben schon vor 100 Jahren ein Bergwerk gab. In der sehr steilen SW Flanke auf etwa 2400 m wurde Eisen-Manganerz gewonnen, und zwar in den Jahren 1917-1920. Der T4 Arbeitsweg für die Minenarbeiter war schon grenzwertig, mit dem damaligen Schuhwerk,...

Usser Fürberg (2604 m) & Inner Fürberg (2627 m)
Die Fürberge südlich vom Klöntalersee sind eher unbekannt. Vor diesem Bericht gab es gerade mal fünf Hikr Berichte über Usser Fürberg, und neun Berichte über Inner Fürberg. Aber viele Bergsteiger gehen doch nahe vorbei auf dem Weg zum Vrenelisgärtli (127 Berichte). Ich bin um 7:15 in Klöntal Plätz mit dem Mountain...

Great hike to Piz Languard (3263 m) & Muot da la Pischa (3025 m). The weather was perfect with mild temperatures and hardly any wind. Great views to surrounding mountains, and I got to see a couple of ibex close up! First I took the chair lift from Pontresina up to Alp Languard, and then I started my hike at 8:45 AM. I...

Piz Arlos (2697 m) - bike & hike from Savognin
Piz Arlos (2697 m) is a mountain peak just south of Savognin. So far it had only two hikr reports, so it's not that popular I suppose. But according to the summit book, it had actually been visited five times this summer. The peak P.2863, which is nearly 2 km further south, did not have any entries in the summit book for this...

Parpeinahorn (2602 m) - hike & snowshoe hike from Mathon
This was a mixed hike and snowshoe hike. Start in Mathon at 8:30 AM. Lots of spring flowers on the way up to Dros. But above elevation 2100 m it is all snow covered, so that is where I got to use the snowshoes. I generally followed the ski route up to Parpeinahorn, and I did not meet any other hikers above Dros. The weather was...

Piz Piot (3052 m) and Piz Mäder (3000 m) are two mountain peaks which are quite far south of Bivio, but a day trip from Bivio is manageable when doing a bike & hike.
