The Diavolezza, meaning devil in German, is a big name in mountains and skiing in Upper Engadine. The rocky outcrop high above the Val Bernina is named after a diabolically beautiful woman who is said to have turned the heads of many an Alpine dweller. Today, however, it attracts the sportive with beautiful, scenic and sunny slopes. Highlight is the challenging glacier descent over Pers and the Morteratsch Glacier on secured but non-groomed slopes, as you make your way through this bizarre wilderness of snow and ice.
