Located at the heart of the Engadin’s extensive network of cross-country ski trails, Celerina conquers the hearts of enthusiasts as soon as they arrive. Skiers of all tastes – whether classic- or skating-style, beginners or experts, children or adults – find trails of every level of difficulty along with superb conditions for an exhilarating day on the snow.
There is hardly a single cross-country ski enthusiast who does not rave about the superlative conditions in this sunny paradise! Of the 230 kilometres of beautifully prepared trails that lead through the lake-strewn Engadin valley, about 30 kilometres lie on Celerina’s doorstep: eight trails for classic- and skating-style skiing alike, including - at least - two official “dream trails”!

These short loops are prepared for both classic-style and skating-style skiing and have no gradients, so they are ideal for enthusiasts with a cardiac condition as well as for beginners.
