Looking at Lej da Segl with Maloja at the western end of the lake. This is the headwaters of the En River. Over the pass takes you down into Italy.

Another view of the Standard ski run. It was pretty wide on top but it narrowed right down to about one cat width wide. Pretty darn icy in places also.

Stitch photo of the ski run. Not much to see but you do have to keep you speed up to make it up a small hill.


Europe trip day four - st. moritz day three 039

Europe trip day four - st. moritz day three 039

Looking down the Georgi ski run. Pretty flat with some uphill sections at the bottom. You certainly needed speed to make it up the hills. It did offer a nice alternative to the broad Corvatsch Glacier and the Standard run. However, off-piste was a bad idea with the thin cover.

Nice looking slope but I didn't want to wander out there because I just didn't know what was lurking under the snow.
