Diavolezza

The Diavolezza (in the local variant of Italian, She-Devil) is a mountain in the area of Pontresina in Graubünden. It has a height of 2978 m and is located southeast of Munt Pers (3207 m).

The mountain can be reached by cable car from Val Bernina, the Bernina Pass valley. At the base station of the cable car on 2093 m there is a train station (on the Bernina line of the Rhaetian Railway (RhB)). At the summit, there is a restaurant with a panoramic terrace, as well as a hotel offering both hotel-class and bunk-style accommodations.

The Diavolezza is one of the ski areas of the Upper Engadin (from 1'896 m to 3'066 m). The skiing area is connected to that of Piz Lagalb, which lies on the opposite side of the valley. The two areas are usually marketed as one, called Diavolezza-Lagalb. The Diavolezza-Lagalb area is known for its difficult slopes, all red and black, as well as the good snow conditions lasting often as long as May. Especially popular is the difficult 10 km slope down the Morteratsch Glacier to the Morteratsch railway station (the slope on the glacier is marked and secured).

Each month at full moon, there is moonlight skiing in the evening.
