Nowhere are the Rätikon peaks more beautiful trellis than seen from the Sassauna! Long, varied descent over open slopes, through sparse forests and scattered farms to Fanas.
Thanks to the cable car to the 'Eggli' (Fanas cable car), the Sassauna (2308 m above 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 increasingly steeper. It is possible to follow the SSW ridge, or climb further east in the flank, to the summit of the Sassauna (2308 m above sea level). Nevertheless, a challenging ski tour with steep terrain in the summit area on a magnificent panoramic mountain. Nowhere are the Rätikon peaks more beautiful 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 mountain huts of Furner (1709 m above sea level). Now over the beautiful southern slopes of Fatans down to the connecting road southwest to Casällas. Traverse on the snow-covered road westwards to Pajös and now over the last slopes down to the village of Fanas. (Variant: It can also be skied along the summer trail a little under the cable car, in the lower part more rewarding, but in the upper part less beautiful skiing.)
Alternatively, there is the exit to Schiers.
Enjoy a fine "Plättli" in the mountain inn Sassauna near the mountain station.
