This friendly skiing area is popular with those looking for less hustle and bustle and more active recreation in unique nature. The panoramic Aela ski lift at the gates of the village perfectly matches the idyll of picturesque Maloja, which forms a harmonious conclusion to the Engadin high valley. A sun-drenched insider tip for individualists, the decelerated and soul riders, who find relaxation here just as much as families with their kids. There is also fun on the snowtubing facility, where young and old alike can sling across the wide piste on oversized, brightly coloured inflatable tubes.
