A true Engadin classic, where you literally walk on water. Around 15 kilometers of freshly prepared cross-country ski trails are available from the Maloja Capolago stop and lead across the entire Upper Engadin lake district to St. Moritz. As you go over the lakes of Sils, Silvaplana and Champfèr, the wonderful expanse of our high valley surrounded by snow-covered mountain slopes and spoiled by the sun stretches before you. With its flat and straight tracks, this part of the Engadin Skimarathon invites classic technique lovers and skaters alike to glide along in a relaxed manner. (Can also be done in the opposite direction or as single partial stages.)

Author’s recommendation

Watch out for the wind direction; with Maloja wind it is much easier to ski from Maloja to St. Moritz.
