Cross-country skiing in St. MoritzMake your mark
The cross-country skiing network around St. Moritz covers over 220 kilometres. It includes Switzerland’s most famous trail: the Engadin Skimarathon route from Maloja to S-chanf.
This snowy Swiss paradise promises spectacular cross-country skiing conditions: a richly diverse landscape, exceptional track quality and fabulously reliable snow cover. If you’d prefer to take things easy, follow the direct route past the three lakes or enjoy Engadin’s longest gliding zone near Zuoz. More ambitious skiers can tackle the legendary marathon route, head to the picturesque neighbouring valleys or do laps of the racing circuit near St. Moritz, where you can continue training late into the evening on the night track. Meanwhile those keen to move up in the world set out from the Diavolezza valley station towards the Bernina pass, following the tracks of the world’s slowest fast train: the Bernina Express. Even further up on Alp Bondo, die-hard skiers can do their thing right through the spring: the glacier trail on the Bernina pass is groomed from mid-March.
Highlight of the winter: the Engadin Skimarathon
It all begins with the Women’s Race, one week before the main event. On a 17 km trail between Samedan and S-chanf, over 1,000 women take part in the Women’s Race on the first weekend in March to mark the beginning of the Engadin Skimarathon week. And every Friday before the Engadin Skimarathon, top cross-country skiers from around the world meet for the famous night sprint in St. Moritz Bad. During the actual Engadin Skimarathon, around 13,000 men and women tackle the 42 km trail between Maloja and S-chanf or the half-marathon from Maloja to Pontresina.
