White Turf St. Moritz - International Horse Races on Snow since 1907

St.Moritz
In February, the frozen lake of St. Moritz becomes an international sporting hotspot. On the extensive race course, expert jockeys and their thoroughbreds compete in various races including the thrilling skijöring.

More than 30,000 people travel to the Engadin mountains each winter to enjoy the thrilling atmosphere at the horse races on frozen Lake St. Moritz. Over the course of three Sundays in February, international professional jockeys race their spirited horses at terrific speed across the snow, causing the air to buzz with excitement. Undisputed highlight is the skijöring, a spectacular form of racing found only in St. Moritz: competitors are on skis, pulled by riderless thoroughbreds at speeds of up to 50 km/h along the 2,700-metre course. The feat demands equal measures of courage, skill, strength and fitness. The large tent city, covering an area of 130,000 sq. m, offers attractions to guests of all ages including live music, gastronomic delicacies, shopping and a children´s play area. A colourful crowd of horse lovers, jockeys, trainers, owners, helpers, visitors, locals and celebrity guests ensures a glamorous atmosphere that has made the legendary event one of the highlights of the winter season.
