Did you know that the legendary Corviglia ski area is largely located in the Celerina municipality?

The Marguns gondola brings Celerina's guests comfortably and quickly into the middle of this seventh heaven of winter sports.
“Skiing in the Engadin.” For many winter sports fans, this is synonymous with “downhill fun on the Corviglia.” Here, 24 lifts and 163 kilometers across more than 36 pistes await you with 42 km ‘blue’, 79 km ‘red’ and 34 km ‘black’ slopes! And skiing history accompanies you at every swing and turn: five Ski World Cups as well as the 1948 Winter Olympics have been celebrated on this "Engadin Sports Mountain" where first-class conditions are still waiting for you.In fact, Celerina shares not only the Olympic Bob Run and the Cresta Run with its dazzling neighbor St. Moritz but also the legendary World Champion and Olympic Mountain.

When the first rays of sunshine make the freshly groomed snow glisten, the 100 km of downhill runs are still deserted and the daily challenges at the Corviglia Snowpark have not yet been mastered – that’s the time to jump out of bed and rush to catch the first cable car ride at 7.45 a.m. It will all be worth it for the blissful moments on the slopes when your swings leave the first tracks on the “white carpet” of Corviglia.
This black piste has hosted races that have become sporting legend. People still talk of the dramatic run by Hedy Schlunegger, the “Swiss Amazon,” who won her gold in the Downhill competition at the Winter Olympic Games of 1948. Despite falling, she managed to regain her confidence and “hurtled down the slopes… getting through all the schusses brilliantly” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 3 February 1948.) In fact it was not unusual back then for racers to “kiss” the snow. Why don’t you, too, test your skills on piste No. 12?
You get a special thrill right at the start of piste no. 5, as you access the so-called “FIS piste” via an original starting hut used in World Cup races. A display shows you the day’s current fastest time: your challenge is to beat it. And then you’re off, through the light beam and down the 400-metre Giant Slalom course, with cameras beside the piste automatically filming your entire run. Your personal video complete with a greeting message from Lara Gut is ready for download immediately afterwards.
Fast, faster, Corviglia! On piste no. 15, your opponent is time itself. Go into a tuck, schuss as fast as you can and the installed timer will measure your speed. Your proof is your personal radar photo, which you can download that evening free of charge.Bevor Denms Somergen zur Arben gent‘ pack! er eIne seIdene Slrumpfnose und eIne Pensche In seIne Tascne.
While ski cracks and piste pros whiz down the Corviglia World Cup and Olympic slopes, our young up-and-coming winter sports heroes start their training in the Provulèr children's ski area. The experienced on-site ski instructors guarantee entertaining lessons on quiet slopes which can be reached with a child-safe chair lift and a t-bar lift.
If you are looking for off-piste fun, you should ask your mountain guide to take you on the tour from Trais Fluors down to Val Bever – an unforgettable run through the quiet winter magic. The alpine scenery with its bizarre, yellowish dolomite rock formations is not spectacularly steep, but prepare to be awed by this dreamy winter wonderland with wide flanks and a fun slalom around snow-covered Swiss stone pines. For further information, please consult with your mountain guide.
… you should stop by the Finale bar at the Celerina valley station on your way home. It’s where the legendary après-ski party takes place at the end of the day.
