As rockoyster has already advised, the funiculars and cable car to Piz Nair via Corviglia are closed for maintenance from 9 Apr-22 Jun 2018. Most other mountain transport in the area is also closed while you are there, as it is the off-season between the ski and hiking seasons, so they use this time to undertake maintenance.
However, there are two options you might like to consider, which will be operating on 23 April:
Surlej/Silvaplana–Murtèl–Corvatsch cable car - 50% discount with Swiss Travel Pass
www.corvatsch.ch/en/ti ckets/summer/prices/si ngle-tickets/
Cable car to Diavolezza glacier - no discount with Swiss Travel Pass
Look for the heading Single trips for pedestrians and double it for the return fare.
Both are outside St Moritz, but easy to get to on public transport. With your Swiss Travel Pass, transport from St Moritz to both cable car valley stations is free.
You can plan how to get there with the Swiss Timetable:
The stops you need are:
- Enter From St Moritz, To Corvatsch into timetable
- It will take 56 minutes from St Moritz railway station to the top of Corvatsch.
- You will travel first by bus to the stop Surlej, Corvatschbahn, then by cable car to Corvatsch, passing mid-station Murtèl on the way up.
- Enter From St Moritz, To Diavolezza into timetable
- It will take you just over an hour to get from St Moritz to the top of the Diavolezza.
- To start, you will travel by train from St Moritz along the Bernina Express route on a regional train to the station Bernina Diavolezza, which is a "Stop on request" stop.
- You will need to press a button near the door well before the station to get the train to stop, so do this after the train has left the station Bernina Suot, which is the station before Bernina Diavolezza.
- On your way back, there will be a button to press on the Bernina Diavolezza station platform to alert the next train to stop there.
- "Stop on request" is "Halt auf Verlangen" in German and "Fermada sün dumonda" in Romansch. (In that area, "Fermada sün dumonda" might be spelt slightly differently, as there are several varieties of Romansch.)
You can see some photos of the Diavolezza Glacier attached to my post of Jul 28, 2017 - 5:42 AM on the following page if you are interested:
