We will ski one of the most scenic sections of the Engadin race course and preview the infamous "mattress downhill." After skiing through the Engadin Marathon 21km course finish, we will continue past Pontresina and stop at Muottas Muragl funicular.

Travel to the top of Muottas Muragl for a view extending down the Engadin Valley, all the way to Maloja. Grab a bite for lunch, then rodel back down to the valley before skiing home to Samedan.

In the afternoon, relax at the hotel or in the mineral baths across the street.

As part of the race week festivities, the Engadin offers Night Sprints for elite skiers in St Moritz Bad at 7:00 pm. The festive atmosphere under the lights makes for an entertaining evening. There are food tents available to grab a bite at the sprints, or try one of the restaurants in St Moritz for dinner. This evening’s dinner is on your own. Your trip leaders are happy to make restaurant recommendations and reservations.

Return to our hotel at your leisure by train or bus after the races, a short 15 minute ride from St Moritz.
