We're taking this circuitous route instead of the more direct route up from the St.Moritz railway station in order to avoid the popular skiing area, which is full of cable car and ski-lift facilities. Also, this route appears to be less steep.
This trail is designated by the Swiss Hiking Federation as a "mountain hiking trail". The advice given by the Swiss Hiking Federation for such a trail is as follows (quotation taken from the map):
"Users must be sure-footed, have a good head for heights, be in good physical condition and have mountain experience. Shoes must be solid and slip-resistant."
Cancellation: Adverse weather conditions can make a mountain hike very dangerous, and the weather forecast can be changing all the time. So a cancellation even at very short notice is possible.
