Snowshoe hike from Pontresina to Alp Languard

We will meet at the mountain guide office in Pontresina. We start right from there and walk through the village to the top. After the last houses we put on our snowshoes. Along the Röntgenweg we zigzag up through the beautiful Swiss stone pine forest. With a bit of luck we will see one or the other animal, maybe we will even meet an ibex. As soon as we are above the wood limit, we will have a fantastic view of the Bernina massif. We climb even further and reach Alp Languard after about two hours. We eat our picnic and enjoy the panorama. The return descent takes us directly to Pontresina.
