Hi Chris,

According to this schedule it's all doable. Whether it's too much depends on your personal ideas about what a travel day should look like. If you're fine with the arrival and departure times, there's nothing wrong with this journey. You can shorten it by leaving out the last Bernina Express stretch St. Moritz-Alp Grüm and back to Pontresina. Instead you can explore St. Moritz (as suggested by Alpenrose in your previous post)/Pontresina and their surroundings (e.g. the Morteratsch glacier) for a somewhat slower travel pace and more free time in the afternoon. Maybe you have time to do a longer Bernina Express leg another day? I don't know what the rest of your itinerary looks like.
