Coaz Hutte

We shortened the hike to the Coaz Hutte by taking the Corvatsch lift from Surlej just above Silvaplana. We disembarked at the middle station, and hiked over to Fuorcla Surlej. This easy trail gave us great place to eat lunch at the pass overlooking the Tschierva glacier.

From here we continued our hike traversing up the valley to the hutte set on the rock face adjacent to the Rosig Glacier, high above the glacial feed lake.

All the hutte require you to were special shoes while inside. These are provide or you can bring your own slippers. The weather was perfect!

I had noticed on the web site that the hutte often served the regional specialty Pizzoccheri. This is a buckwheat noodle dish served with potatoes, spinach, onion and cheeze. It became one of my favorites after first tasting it on our prior trip.

It’s possible to buy the noddle in the US at a specialty food market.
