Extensive modernisation of the Diavolezza aerial cableway

I'll be traveling to St. Moritz in December. I've planned to visit Muottas Muragl and Diavolezza, which I got the info from this forum that they both got fantastic scencery.

However, I just found out Diavolezza cableway is under major renovation during that period (www.diavolezza.ch/en/diavolezza/umbau-umwelt/), may I ask what other mountains are good to visit?

The views from Corvatsch and Corviglia/Piz Nair above St. Moritz are equally spectacular.

Bad timing, I'd say, sorry. IMO the views from Piz Nair and Piz Corvatsch cannot really compete with Diavolezza's. In winter maybe a little more than in summer as it will (hopefully) be all white around you - in summer the glaciers seen from Diavolezza are simply breathtaking while there are almost no glaciers in view from Piz Nair (or very distant).

On a beautiful day I'd rather go up Piz Corvatsch than Piz Nair.

Or why not doing a hike or horse-drawn carriage/sleigh ride from Sils to Fex Valley or Pontresina to Roseg Valley? More fun IMO.

You got good alternatives already mentioned, consider also a hike into the Morteratsch valley, possibly in combination with a train ride on the Bernina line, as it's one of the stops. There is an easy and rewarding winter hike into the valley just to the foot of the glacier. Dont start too early in the morning, as you will be in the shadows then in December. Do the train trip first and go off at Morteratsch on your return.

It's 15 mins on public transport bus. Drops you right outside the cable car station.
