The Madrisa round trip starts in Klosters-Dorf. From there, the gondola lift on Madrisa, the new Schaffürggli chairlift and the Madrisa lift are used to reach around 2500m. From the Madrisa ski area you cross eastwards to the Schlappinerjoch (2203m) and then drive north down into the Valzifenztal. Through this valley you reach Gargellen (1420m) in the Montafon (Austria). A chairlift (Schafbergbahn) and a ski lift (Kristallbahn) take you back to an altitude of 2200m. A short descent northwards along the valley run to Gargellen is followed by a 45-minute ascent to the St. Antönier-Joch. 

A wonderful descent through the Alpeltitälli to St. Antönien concludes the Madrisa round trip. What is a fantastic 3-day tour in summer can be experienced effortlessly in one day in winter.

After a well-deserved break in one of the cosy restaurants in St. Antönien, Postbuses drive to Küblis. There you can take the Rhaetian Railway back to Klosters-Dorf.


Round trip tickets available online here or directly at the valley station of the Madrisa mountain railways in Klosters.
