I have been reading, but am frankly having difficulty figuring out possible hikes when I am unfamiliar with the names/ locations and don't have a basis to figure out which of the 28 hike suggestions in the Engadin St. Moritz guide would work for us.
We are a family, including teenagers. They are very fit; our main limitation is my knee which acts up on descents over about 3 km (3 km of descent, not the whole hike). We have done day hikes up to 14-15 km, but would prefer not quite that much, esp. since we will be hiking on consecutive days.
We will be there in very late June, with an afternoon and two full days. (Staying 3 nights in Pontresina, and so we will get the pass.) While we like hiking and that is the main reason for going, we also like time to explore towns/ villages. The rest of my family has never been on a funicular, so routes that involve those will probably be favored. From previous posts, it looks like the Muottas Muragl might be an option for the day we arrive (close to Pontresina, yes?), as long as we can stow our luggage at the hotel before we actually check in.
I am certainly willing to do research; I just need to be pointed in the right direction. Many thanks for any advice.
