Even in summer on Corviglia, you’ll be biking on trails marked by sporting greatness. The Olympia flow trail is the oldest member of the "Corviglia Flow Trails" family and, for the most part leads across the 1948 Olympic Slope. It runs from the Corviglia top station to Chantarella (middle station) via Sass Runzöl and Alp Nova. When they take to the trail, bikers will ascend 480 metres in total through rocky terrain, ruggedly-romantic Alpine meadows and fragrant pine forests. But this flow trail is not just something to be tackled by proficient bikers - families will love it, too. Flow trail fans can use the Corviglia mountain transport systems to transport their bike from St. Moritz Dorf to Corviglia. The flow trail is perfect as a warm-up exercise before undertaking a more extensive tour or as a spectacular finish to one of the numerous mountain bike tours on the Corviglia.

 

HOME OF TRAILS

Incidentally: Danny MacAskill was very impressed about these flow trails in the "Home of Trails" video. His words: «The downhill trail was like an endless ride on a magic carpet»

Une jolie piste mais pas très bien conçue au niveau des enchaînements. Le paysage est magnifique. Et pour une piste classée "moyenne" elle a vraiment très peu de pente, il faut sans cesse relancer.
