There is a tradition of Ice as well as snow sports in the Upper Engadine. You can try a pirouette on our hotel skating rink. Play a game of curling with friends, or chase the puck in the Ludains ice arena.
Imagine speeding headfirst down the ice track at the break-neck speed of 140 km per hour; your nose only just above the ice. Since the 1884/85 winter season, excited participants have felt the big surge of adrenaline on the legendary Cresta Run. For anyone who tries it, Cresta racing soon becomes an addiction. The adventure, tinged with danger, is what makes racing down the Cresta Run on a fast skeleton bobsled so alluring to enthusiasts.
Olympic Bob Run St. Moritz-Celerina
In the mood for some action? A ride down the bob run St. Moritz-Celerina equals a 75-second adrenaline surge. Anyone daring to thunder down the world’s only natural ice run as a passenger aboard a four-man bob with pilot and brakeman, will be put to the test at the dramatic “horseshoe” bend (if not before) but will receive a “diploma” after reaching the end in one piece.
Engadin St. Moritz offers a variety of long and short toboggan runs. The classic run is the Muottas Muragl. Another highlight is Switzerland’s famous snow roller coaster “Preda-Bergün”, which is only a 20-minute train ride away from St. Moritz.

There are arduous ascents to magnificent viewpoints, adventurous pass crossings and challenging single trails; but also comfortable valley tours and side valleys with wide paths for the family bike are waiting to be explored. And that’s not all. Bikers can take the mountain railway in Celerina and St. Moritz to popular points of departure for bike tours.
