Very nice track.

In my understanding this is the official "ski safari" tour.

Some insights:

1) check that the Tschiertschen skilifts is open.

2) the whole tour is easy, for snowboardes your have some points where you need to walk a bit, but "no pain... no gain"... and this is really nice.

3) From Gürgaletsch direction Malakoff peak you need "off piste ski" "schnee schüe". Here is mandatory. PS: you need to walk for 40 min.

4) the Going down from the point between Gürgaletsch and Malakoff is not difficult but is close to 40%... this is the only point where there are some avalanche risks. But when I went I saw that a "bomb" was exploded.. and different people told me that this "ski safary" is a kind of "official and supervised freeride", see also next point.

5) In Parpan, buy the "ski safari tiket" this allow you to use all the lifts (lenzerheide, arosa & Tschiertschen).

Enjoy

you need 3h 30 min with schneeschuhe for the critical points.

Important Remark:

From the Gürgaletsch peak you can go down to Jochalp and then walk to parpan.
This walk is in outdooractive always mentioned as "SCHUTZGEBIET". In fact, this alert is a very old one.
