The Corviglia Flow Trails
Downhill fun on the tracks of sport history.
The name says it all: the three flow trails on Corviglia give bikers the perfect opportunity to really experience downhill flow. Provided you have some experience in cornering and apply the right braking techniques, flow trails are great fun – even for families with children. But don't be fooled, even experts will come away fully satisfied. That's because fast, tightly bunched berms and pump-track-like waves and hollows encourage bikers to jump and try different manoeuvres. And last but not least: great views are also part and parcel of the experience, making the flow trails a highlight for bikers of every skill level.
Thanks to the mountain cableways, bikers can get back up to the start of the trails quickly and with ease again after their downhill runs. After which there's only one thing to do again: go with the flow!
The Olympia Flow Trail
Even in summer on Corviglia, you'll be biking on trails marked by sporting greatness. The Olympia flow trail, also known as the Corviglia flow trail, for the most part leads across the 1948 Olympic Slope. It runs from the Corviglia top station to Chantarella (middle station) via Sass Runzöl and Alp Nova. When they take to the trail, bikers will ascend 480 metres in total through rocky terrain, ruggedly-romantic Alpine meadows and fragrant pine forests.

The WM Flow Trail
For the most part, the WM flow trail passes along the legendary racing slope on which three World Ski Championships have been held since 1974. Even today, the best female skiers in the world compete against one another here in World Cup races every winter. The trail route leads from the Corviglia top station towards the Trutz mountain shelter via the Giop Alp. A breathtaking panorama and numerous challenging bends – not least a tricky 360° bend – mark it out as quite special. The trail drops 280 metres in altitude in total.
The WM flow trail lends itself wonderfully to being combined with the Foppettas flow trail. With so many bends, this trail is worthy of a medal!

The Foppettas Flow Trail
The Foppettas flow trail through the forest above Champfèr is a fun combination of waves and bends. It's the perfect trail to top off the challenging Suvretta Pass trails or even extend the WM flow trail. It is also the first trail to be snow-free in spring and one that can be reached easily from the top station of the Signalbahn.
