To the Piz Upia

This tour counts as one of the easier ski tours in Val Mazia/Matschertal, but the ski mountaineers will be rewarded with a magnificent panorama anyway

The starting point of this tour is at the end of Val Mazia/Matschertal. From the Glieshöfe farmsteads (1,810 m), follow the alpine pasture trail until you reach Upiaalm (not open to the public) at 2,225 m. From there, go left up to the rocks in a slightly semi-circular direction. Then cross the gentle slopes up to Upia lake (2,552 m) and continue to the south in direction to Upia Peak and Hochalt. The steep slope, which is the most demanding part of the hike, requires keen attention and a high level of physical fitness until you reach the peak. Prepare yourself for some stunning scenery and a fast descent.

The descent follows the same route as the ascent.
