Mountain biking on Corviglia
Let it flow: that’s the motto when it comes to this fashionable summer sports.
Corviglia is something of an insider’s tip among mountain bikers, given that it boasts unique flow trails that range from single trails to the Foppettas Flow Trail with integrated timber elements, offering everything the biker’s heart desires. The World Championship Flow Trail is a particular favourite: starting at the Corviglia mountain station it opens up breathtaking views which, on any one of the many sunny days in the Engadin, extend almost as far as Maloja. From Corviglia a 360 degree turn takes you to a downhill pump-track that has been harmoniously blended into the surrounding landscape. A highlight for early risers is the Piz Nair Sunrise offer when the railways & cableways start up before dawn so bike fanatics can reach the top of Piz Nair at 3057 metres in time for the sunrise. ‘Wow!’ is the only fitting response when the sun begins to appear from behind the mountain peaks and turns the night into day.
