Sils has a long tradition in operating a climatological measuring station. As early as 1863 a measuring station was put into operation and the systematic measurement of meteorological parameters was started. This makes the Sils series of measurements one of the longest in the entire Alpine region and is of great value for observing climate development. The stations were located at different places in the village. Currently, the Sils measuring station is located near the Champsegl schoolhouse.
