Next to the lake there is a restaurant of the same name. In the summer time, the area can be reached by several hiking trails.[1] In the Winter skiers coming from the Piz Corvatsch can take the Giand'Alva skilift and ski down the almost 9km long ski run, also called Hahnensee, into St. Mortitz-Bad. Though the run can only be opened after significant snowfall has accumulated.
