In Romansh, Cuolm da Vi means “mountain with view”, and the excursion destination is exactly that: From one side of the peak at 2,203 metres above sea level, you can see Sedrun, with its ski area that extends as far up as the Oberalp Pass, as well as the Uri Alps. From the other, you can get a glimpse of far-away Chur, Switzerland's oldest city. Thanks to the gondola from Sedrun up Cuolm da Vi, which was completed in 2019, there is a connection in winter between the two ski areas Andermatt-Sedrun and Disentis. And in summer, you can save having to hike up. But if you're nevertheless thirsty: At the snack bar La Baracca, you can enjoy the view through panoramic windows or outdoors on a comfortable lounge chair.
