Descripción:

The Silvretta-Samnaun Gruppe, mountain range located in the Central Eastern Alps, extends between the regions of the Vorarlberg, Tyrol (Austria) and the Engadine (Switzerland).

The highest peak, Piz Linard (3,410m) stands out over the 69 other three thousand summits found. However, the latter is not the most recognised in the region but the popular Piz Buin (3,312m). Quite easily accessible it is one of the main goals of our program.

This mountain range offers multiple options for any mountaineering skier despite his level. There is a wide range of mountain huts built at the end of the 19th century by the DAV (German Alpine Club) and the CAS (Swiss Alpine Club) that allow a good rest at the end of the stages in an excellent mountaineering atmosphere.
