Story by Chris Patient from , Switzerland, submitted on 04/11/2011
Like Martin from the UK, I did not enjoy this pass from Samedan, despite the magnificent views of the mountains on the right. It was busy with heavy traffic and noisy with the neighboring train line. The road is not steep but it was windy and cold.The pass is best climbed from the other side albeit much harder.
My personal climb rating:
Story by Martin from , UK, submitted on 09/05/2007
I hit the Bernina on a bad day. There was a heavy headwind, the sky was overcast and it was very cold. As a result I am afraid I did not like this climb at all, my only memories are of being cold on the way up and disappointed at the top which you have to look hard to notice as the climb is so gentle at this point.
Story by Sven Mallezie from Eeklo, Belgium, submitted on 27/06/2007
This is a very light climb. Perfect to make it the first climb of a period of altitude training in Sankt Moritz. Sometimes theres heavy traffic on the road, as it connects the Engadin with Italy and Livigno. A great climb to do, and a great view into Italy and the Lago Bianco on top!
