Lifts in operation for the Summer Season 2013
On 8th June, with the opening of the St. Moritz Signal Cable car and the Muottas Muragl Funicular, the summer season of lift operation in the Upper Engadine began. With the offer "Mountain Railways Inclusive", hotel guests will again ride to the summits at no charge. A preview to a "Mountain Summer" full of highlights.
The Summer punctually arrived in the Upper Engadine for the opening of the lifts for the Summer season. From the 8th June, the Signal cable car has been carrying guests to St. Moritz's home mountain, Corviglia. On the same day, the Muottas Muragl Funicular commenced its operations for the season. Corvatsch opened on the 15th June, and the funiculars St. Moritz Dorf - Chantarella - Corviglia, and the Celerina - Marguns Gondola will open on the 22nd June. With the Diavolezza cable car, which has remained in operation since the winter without a spring closure, Engadine-St. Moritz offers a first class offer for summer in the mountains.
Mountain Railways Inclusive, Hiking Pass for Holiday apartment guests
The "Mountain Railways Inclusive" offer is available to guests who stay 2 nights or more in one of the 100 participating Upper Engadine hotels, and allows free use of the 13 operating mountain lifts and as well as some public transport within the valley. Guests in holiday apartments can benefit from the Hiking Pass for holiday apartment guests. These guests can obtain a specially priced 2 - 6 day ticket for the use of all open lifts in the Upper Engadine as well as a variety of public transportation in the valley.

Flow Trail on Corviglia
Last Summer, the Flow Trail opened on Corviglia with the prime object of providing effortless riding fun. On this "downhill roller coaster" for mountain bikers of every age and ability, excitement is provided by a variety of banked turns, Pumptracks and Camel humps. Once at the bottom, most like to go back up to the start again - either under their own power on the bike, or in the comfort of the funiculars from St. Moritz Dorf or Chantarella. Also available for mountain biker transport to the start of this biking adventure on Corviglia are the Signal cable car from St. Moritz Bad, and the Marguns Gondola. A additional offer being introduced this year will be the transport of mountain bikers to the top of Piz Nair by cable car. Bikers can take advantage of the Corviglia Bike Pass, which is available as an attractive daily or weekly pass. All mountain bike information is available at www.engadin.stmoritz.ch/bike.
New Attractions and Events on Muottas Muragl
Guests and locals are awaiting a variety of events which will take place on the mountain this Summer.
