Ski Disentis by Train

60 km of piste between 1227-2833m

Disentis, home to an ancient Benedictine monastery, is a largely Romansh-speaking community who call the town Mustér. The resort has a great range slopes with some impressive verticals, highly-regarded off-piste and a reasonable beginners area. It is a good resort for mixed ability parties as the pistes do offer reasonably good progression from novice to advanced intermediate, and the trails and off-piste provide plenty of scope for expert skiers and snowboarders. To access the higher runs beneath Péz Ault and the Dadens area you do need to use surface lifts, but on the whole you can navigate the resort using the cable car and modern chairlifts. The expansion of Andermatt now links the runs at Andermatt to Sedrun and, since the 2019/20 season, to Disentis too.

Ski Disentis by train

Disentis lies at the western terminus of Graubünden's narrow gauge Rhaetian Railway and the eastern terminus of the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn railway, the latter linking it with the ski areas at Andermatt and Sedrun and the resorts of the Valais. The scenic Rhaetian Railway journey from Chur takes you through the Rhine gorge, past Ilanz (for buses to Laax and Obersaxen), Tavanasa (for Breil/Brigels) and along the Upper Rhine, almost to its source, 20km away above Sedrun at Lake Toma.

Best of the Slopes at Disentis

The beautiful 12k run from Péz Ault down to S.Catrina has a vertical descent of 1600m, taking in red, blue and black sections and, optionally, an unprepared area. Despite the fairly steep sections on some of the red runs in the resort, the black valley run is pretty straightforward.

Getting to Disentis by Train

The best destination to access the downhill slopes by public transport in this ski area is Disentis. The Postbus provides a free connection to the ski area (direction Acletta), or you can turn left out of the station and walk uphill for about ten minutes to get to the valley station.
