What makes Engadine special isn't just its pristine nature, but also the world-class events and cultural highlights that take place in the region. Here's just a small selection of the biggest events happening this year in St. Moritz and the surrounding area.
Audi FIS Ski World Cup
Every year, the best athletes compete in the Super-G at the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup for women. The races in St. Moritz are a classic in the women's racing calendar and for good reason: Corviglia, with its ideal conditions, has already hosted the Alpine Ski World Championships five times (1934, 1948, 1974, 2003 and 2017).
A supporting program packed with DJs, live concerts, parties and award ceremonies round off the weekend. Spectators can already buy their tickets online.
Icy fun on the frozen Lake St. Moritz. Experience freedom on skates - on the circular track, the pond field hockey field or the ice rink. Those who prefer a quieter pace can enjoy the walking paths across the lake. Cross-country skiing enthusiasts can enjoy a 4-kilometer trail across the ice. In addition to the wide range of offers, the annual top events also take place amidst the impressive backdrop of the frozen lake.
Local restaurateurs take care of visitors' physical well-being at their take-away stands.
Bob: BMW IBSF Weltcup
The world's only natural ice bobsleigh run - the Olympic Bob Run - runs from St. Moritz to Celerina. Every year, the largest snow cult track in the world is created here within three weeks. The 1,722-metre-long ice channel features 14 bends and 130 vertical meters at speeds of up to 135 km/h. During the BMW IBSF Bobsleigh, Skeleton & Para Sport World Cup, women and men compete for every hundredth of a second in the 2-man and 4-man bobsleigh and skeleton. The ice sports experience can be followed every day.
Born in St. Moritz in 1985 and since then the most prestigious winter polo tournament on snow, the Cartier Trophy will once again be contested this year: in snow polo, two teams of four players compete against each other on horseback on the snow-covered playing field. In the heart of the snow-covered mountains, St. Moritz offers a unique venue for this sporting spectacle with a wealth of tradition, Engadine hospitality, entertainment and exquisite gastronomy.
White Turf St. Moritz
The first three Sundays in February are dominated by equestrian sport. At White Turf, galloping, trotting and world-exclusive skijoring races take place every half hour on the frozen Lake St. Moritz. The noble thoroughbred horses from all over Europe and international jockeys provide plenty of thrills on snow and ice. An attractive supporting program in the tent city right next to the race track delights visitors with fine cuisine, selected art and catchy live music.
Every winter, the International Concours of Elegance brings together top-class vintage cars, classic cars and racing cars in the Engadin winter landscape. The elegant vehicles are presented on the frozen lake. Admission to the exhibitions and the races is free of charge.
54. Engadin Skimarathon & 15. Halbmarathon
Every year, over 14,000 cross-country skiers are drawn to the Upper Engadin. The Engadin Skimarathon is part of the Worldloppet and Visma Ski Classics. Cross-country skiing enthusiasts from over 60 nations have been tackling the 42 km «Engadiner» for more than half a century. The route of the second-largest cross-country skiing event in the world starts in Maloja, runs via Pontresina and ends with the big marathon celebration at the finish in S-chanf. The starting signal for the cross-country skiing spectacle is given on Sunday morning.
