A spectacle for all
Mountain bikers
Immediately after sunrise, mountain bikers head off at an unusually early hour to embark on the single trails around St. Moritz and thus get the absolute maximum out of the day. They fortify themselves with a substantial breakfast during the sunrise, so that they have plenty of stamina to negotiate the first descent.

For once, hikers can start off their tour at over 3,000 metres above sea level, with the morning sun still low in the sky. But before they do so, they can admire the magnificent sunrise while helping themselves to the delicious breakfast buffet. That is an experience that even many of the SAC mountain huts would find hard to beat.

You don't need to be a sports fanatic to enjoy the sunrise on the Piz Nair. The cable car takes you up to the peak early in the morning. While hikers and mountain bikers start making tracks, romantics can sit back and delight in the morning sun, and later take the cable car back down to the valley.
