Winter walking in St. Moritz

The crunch of fresh snow

The best way to experience nature is to explore it on foot. Winter walkers are spoilt for choice in the Engadin St. Moritz region, which is zigzagged with routes ranging from simple forest paths to trails suitable for prams.

When Engadin is blanketed with a thick layer of snow, the valley radiates an even deeper and cleaner sense of calm. You may not even notice how quiet it is until you break the silence with the satisfying crunch of fresh snow underfoot. There are up to 150 km of groomed winter walking trails through this fairytale landscape. The trails are well-signposted, so that only your meandering thoughts will get lost in this spectacular Alpine landscape.

Into neighbouring valleys and over frozen lakes
The central Engadin region from St. Moritz to Bever features a dense network of winter walking trails with countless route variations – from simple short walks, through to longer hikes through the snow. You’ll be in the heart of the action as you traverse the trails through the main valley or walk across Lake St. Moritz. While in the neighbouring valleys Val Roseg and Val Bever, a dreamlike landscape of pristine wilderness awaits.

Pleasant walking weather
The average winter temperature in Engadin is around -9 degrees Celsius. At night it can drop to slightly below -20 degrees, but thanks to the dry climate, it never feels colder than -6 degrees in regions with higher humidity. In February the average humidity level is 57%.
