Thanks to the cable car to the 'Eggli' (Fseilbahn Fanas) the Sassauna (2308 m above.M sea level) is easy to reach. From the mountain station of the cable car you climb over the Ochsenberg first in a pleasant incline, from about 2000 m above sea level .M increasingly steeper. It is possible to follow the SSW ridge, or climb further east in the flank, to the summit of Sassauna (2308 m above sea level.M.). Nevertheless, a challenging ski tour with steep terrain in the summit area on a magnificent panoramic mountain. Nowhere are the Rätikon peaks more beautiful trellis than seen from the Sassauna!

Descent to Fanas: From the summit along the ascent route to the cable car mountain station and on to the Maiensässhütten of Furner (1709 m above sea level.M.). Now over the beautiful southern slopes of Fatans down to the connecting road southwestwards to Casällas. On the snow-covered road traverse westwards to Pajös and now over the last slopes down to the village of Fanas. (Variant: It can also be done along the summer path a little under the cable car, in the lower part more rewarding, but in the upper part skiing less beautiful.)

Alternatively, there is the down to Schiers.

attention! On the descent to Fanas you cross from Casällas to Pardiel the Wildruhezone Forztobel-Casällas - from 1.2. - 15.4. Thank you for respecting the Nature!
