Nowhere are the Rätikon peaks more beautiful than seen from the Sassauna! A little difficult, but still challenging ski tour on the summit slopes with a long and beautiful descent to Schiers.
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 ascend further east in the flank. The steeper summit slopes form the key point of the tour and challenge before you are rewarded with a magnificent summit panorama on the summit of the Sassauna (2308 m above sea level).
Descent to Schiers: From the summit to approx. 2000 m above sea level along the ascent route, then keep right (eastwards) to the huts of Huoben (approx. 1720 m above sea level). Now southwards over partly open, partly wooded terrain quite steeply downhill and via Sponda or Spinis to Lasein (1076 m above sea level, road cleared up to here). Continue over the open slopes of Mount Mari towards Montagna and Schiers.
Alternative: departure to Fanas
Enjoy a fine "Plättli" or a Zmorgakafi in the mountain inn Sassauna near the mountain station.
