The flow trails on Corviglia, the mountain overlooking St. Moritz, promise pure mountain bike joy. As you ride over the humps and dips and around the banked turns, you feel as though you are flowing down the mountain. No chance of anyone riding up: the trail is all yours.
As you dance with centrifugal forces and gravity on the flow trails, you feel you could be dreaming. No sharp bends here, no tricky rocks: just smooth dips and rollers and fluid banked corners, which promise an exhilarating ride that will put a huge smile on any rider’s face.
The WM flow trail starts a few metres from the funicular summit station at Corviglia. From here, the route twists and turns down to the valley: loop the 360-degree corner in style before pumping your way across the Alp Giop pastures to the Trutz mountain restaurant. “WM” in German stands for “Weltmeisterschaft”: world championships. As you glide down the trail, you are following one of the world’s most prestigious ski race courses. Ever since 1974, top skiers have battled for world championship titles and World Cup victories on these very slopes.
This flowing downhill pump track has been harmoniously integrated into the surrounding landscape. Flow and fun are the key factors of the Corviglia Flow Trail that runs from Corviglia (top station) via Sass Runzöl and Alp Nova down to Chantarella (middle station). But this flow trail is not just something to be tackled by proficient bikers - families will love it, too. All the more, because it is easily and comfortably accessible by the Corviglia mountain railways as well.
The banked corners and humps of the Foppettas Flow Trail provide a thrilling conclusion to a day out on the region’s trails. First of all, ride the cable car up to Signal and then follow the gravel trail via Alp Suvretta to Futschöls, starting point for the Foppettas Flow Trail. You could try to beat your personal best time or just relax for the last run of the day – either way, you are guaranteed a fun ride on the forest trail down to Champfèr.
Tip: For a double fix, start with the WM Flow Trail and then ride via El Paradiso and Alp Suvretta to reach the start of the Foppettas Flow Trail.
