My husband and I will be flying into Zurich on Tuesday, March 8 arriving around 8:45 AM. After going through customs and collecting our baggage, we need to take the train(s) to Pontresina. We understand that there are two stops after the main train station. We will have luggage (all on wheels) and one ski bag. We purchased the Swiss Transfer Pass (1st class)which (I think) requires us to take the most direct route. What trains and stations would you recommend we take from the airport to Pontresina? Thanks.

Welcome to MySwissAlps Jenwoltjen!

You can take any connecting suggested by the timetable. You usually need to change train in the Zurich main station, Chur and Samedan. I'd recommend to skip connections with a bus included and stick to the train only options as that's more convenient with luggage. You can send your luggage ahead if you prefer to travel light.
