Bike-El Dorado Engadin St.Moritz is prepared for the season
400 Kilometres of riding pleasure: The Engadine's signposted mountain bike routes will get you going - and thanks to two new flow trails, the fun-factor has been increased even further!
St. Moritz's home mountain Piz Nair is open to all capable mountain bikers. The summit, at 3000m above sea level, is easily reached with the Corviglia-Piz Nair aerial cable car. Truly breathtaking views and an endless variety of trails await bikers at the top. With 400 kilometres of mountain bike trails, Engadin St Moritz is one of THE mountain bike destinations in the Alps.
Upper Engadine mountain bikers are also offered two new attractive trails: The Flow Trail on Corviglia, and the Foppettas Flow Trail. Both flow trails are similar to fast flowing "Downhill Pump Tracks" which have been harmoniously incorporated into the landscape. When riding the flow trails, the "flow" and the fun factor are the primary objectives. The Flow Trail on Corviglia leads from Corviglia mountain station via Saas Runzöl and Alp Nova to Chantarella (middle station), providing a vertical descent of 481 metres. The Foppettas Flow Trail leads from Futschöls through the forest to Foppettas above Champfèr.
The new Flow Trails are not just for downhill mountain bike enthusiasts. They are fun for the whole family! The Corviglia Funicular operates through the season and is available to transport passionate Flow Trail mountain bikers and their bikes to Corviglia. The new Flow Trails serve as a great warm-up lap before a bike tour, or as a "grande finale" after one of the many mountain bike tours on Corviglia. Bike tour suggestions and GPS data can be found on our interactive mountain bike map:
Sunrise Event on Piz Nair
A very special mountain bike event featuring sunrise on Piz Nair will lure mountain bikers to the summit on the 27th July, 24th August, and 28th September 2014. Participants will meet in the early hours at the Chantarella Funicular Valley Station in St. Moritz, and ascend to Piz Nair for an early morning snack and to witness the sunrise from an altitude of 3000 metres. Then, either alone or with an expert local mountain bike guide, bikers will undertake their first descents shortly after dawn. After a few runs, a full breakfast will be served in the Piz Nair restaurant. After breakfast, it's back to the enjoyment and thrills of the trails of Piz Nair and Corviglia.
