Speed: 130 km/h. Centrifugal force: 4.5 G. Fun factor: 10 out of 10! The Olympia Bob Run from St. Moritz to Celerina is the world’s oldest bobsleigh run and the only natural ice track that still stages international races. In a history dating back 125 years, it has served as a venue for two Winter Olympics as well as 24 world championships. A guest ride on the Olympia Bob Run promises 75 seconds of pure adrenalin. As you thunder down the track in a four-person bob, accompanied by a professional pilot and brakeman, you experience all the forces and challenges – as well as the thrills – of this spine-tingling sport, especially when you hurtle round the legendary Horseshoe corner. Anyone over the age of 18 with a healthy heart and a sense of adventure can sign up for one of these high-speed guest rides; the price includes helmet hire, transport back to the start, personal certificate with pin and a glass of bubbly to celebrate.
Two of our cross-country ski trails have particularly delightful names: the “Obere Traumloipe” (“Upper Dream Trail”, no. 52) and the “Untere Traumloipe” (“Lower Dream Trail”, no. 53). They fully deserve them, too: the two trails, each graded black and measuring about 12 km, lead from Celerina into the idyllic Staz forest, a snowy landscape of fairy-tale charm. But take note: these are dream trails primarily for those who enjoy an energetic experience of cross-country skiing, with plenty of ups and downs. The Staz forest is also the setting for one of the more demanding stages of the Engadin Skimarathon, which links the trail network around Celerina and Pontresina with the magnificent routes along the Upper Engadin plateau and across its frozen lakes, thereby offering enthusiasts a virtually boundless choice of sensational routes.
Pssst, stop and listen … do you hear something? No? Wonderful, isn't it? Dreamlike snowshoe silence surrounds you, for example, on the Stazerwald Trail (3.5 km), which takes you across snow-covered moor clearings and through deep forest peace. The route leads from the cross-country skiing school in Celerina to the Pontresina cross-country skiing center at the train station
For many visitors, winter in the Engadin is synonymous with “endless snow sports fun”. And for this, Celerina makes an ideal base. The shortest and most direct access is via the gondola station down in the resort, straight up to the Marguns summit station. This is the gateway to the extensive Corviglia ski area, venue for legendary Winter Olympics and World Championship races, as well as the magnificent pistes and ski touring terrain around Trais Fluors.
Ice rink? Yes, we have one. Curling stones, curling brooms, Bavarian curling ice stocks? We have those, too. A dynamic team looking forward to an amusing and convivial sports session on the ice? That’s you and your friends. Voilà: the action can begin! Whatever you opt for – curling or Bavarian curling, an introductory lesson or an evening’s fun on the ice – you’ll need a good eye and a steady hand; expect a beautifully maintained rink, exciting games and plenty of laughs!
You can of course head up the Corviglia quickly enough on the Chantarella funicular from St. Moritz-Dorf – or you can walk over from the Celerina–Marguns gondola summit station along one of our two new winter walking paths for an experience of fairy-tale charm. These two trails, prepared regularly and walkable in normal hiking boots, lead away from the lively pistes and offer a delightfully peaceful experience of the winter wonderland. To reach them from Celerina, take the gondola up to Marguns; from here, either walk up to the Corviglia funicular summit station or head gently downhill to the Chantarella middle station in just an hour.
The church of San Gian with its two unequal towers is the landmark of our region. During a visit you will learn why after the lightning strike in 1682 its pointed helmet was not restored.
On four evenings in February, the ski slope at Tschainas Hang is transformed into a fast-paced toboggan run. Let the chairlift take you up comfortably and then enjoy the downhill run and then enjoy the descent with a wonderful view of Celerina and the surrounding villages. The illuminated slope, the powdery snow and the snow-covered landscape make the adventure heart beat faster.
It’s Wednesday evening and you’ve nothing lined up? Impossible in Celerina! Every Wednesday evening here, various musicians entertain the public at ever-changing locations. See you on Wednesday, then!
