Corviglia – sports mountain in St. Moritz
The mountain for action and adventure where sports history was written
The Corviglia in St. Moritz is known above all to winter sports enthusiasts. In St. Moritz, winter tourism was invented more than 150 years ago. Today Corviglia is one of the most renowned ski areas in the world.
In summer the local mountain of St. Moritz with its mixture of flow trails and alpine trails is considered one of the most up-and-coming mountain bike areas in Europe. But also trail runners, hikers and families feel in good hands here.
The south-facing Corviglia and the many sunny days in the Engadine ensure a pleasant climate even in winter - and thanks to the high altitude with a great snow guarantee. Both in summer and winter, the view of the Upper Engadine lakes and the glaciated Bernina massif is simply breathtaking.
Who wants to get high will find his destination on the Piz Nair. At over 3000 m above sea level, varied ski slopes and mountain bike trails start through an impressive, wild mountain landscape. If you love the mountains, you must have been here at least once in your life.
St. Moritz – where winter tourism was born
1865 - Year of birth of winter tourism. The birthplace? St. Moritz! After sports like ice skating, curling or sledding, skiing soon came to the Engadine. In 1913 the Chantarella cable car was built from St. Moritz up the mountain - the rest is skiing history. In 1928 the first Olympic Games followed in St. Moritz and at the same time the opening of the Corvigliabahn. A lift exclusively for skiing - that was a first. This was followed by the founding of the first Swiss Ski School Association in St. Moritz. Today, the mountain in the Engadin is one of the top ski destinations in the world.
Mountain biking in the Engadin
In summer Corviglia is becoming increasingly popular with mountain bikers of all levels. In addition to varied tours, the mountain also offers three flow trails especially designed for mountain bikers. Not to forget: the breathtaking panoramic view of the Engadine. Those who want to save energy for the descent can use the mountain bike transport of the mountain railroads for the ascent. In 2021 another easy flow trail will be created between Corviglia and Marguns. Ideal for families and beginners.
By the way: if you stay at least two nights in a hotel in summer, the mountain railway transport is included in the price per night.
