First artificial trail at the site. Co-designed by Shane Wilson.

Engadin St. Moritz has an offer in store for mountain bikers that lets them follow (or indeed ride) in the tracks of great sporting history over the summer months, too, i.e. the Corviglia/Olympia Flow Trail. This trail, most of which follows the Olympic slope of 1948, is comparable to a flowing downhill pump-track; in winter 1948, it provided the setting for the Olympics. It runs from the Corviglia (mountain station) via Sass Runzöl and Alp Nova to Chantarella (middle station). It covers stony terrain – complete with 480 metres of difference in altitude – as well as ruggedly romantic alpine meadows and fragrant forests of Swiss pine. And yet the Olympia/Corviglia Flow Trail is by no means the exclusive preserve of downhill fanatics: it can also be enjoyed by the whole family of mountain bikers. Passionate Flow Trail riders also have the option of using the Corviglia cableway to transport their mountain bikes from St. Moritz Dorf to Corviglia. Pure fun and flow are guaranteed!

Requirements: The flow trails on the Corviglia are not suitable for complete beginners. Riders should have some experience of biking on uneven terrain. Generally speaking, your typical flow trail user will be in good physical condition, have complete control of his or her bike (i.e. be able to brake, switch gears and steer with purpose at all times), and show consideration for others. Bikers are also well aware that helmets need to be worn on all trails at all times.

Engadin St. Moritz bietet Mountainbikern ein Angebot, bei welchem man auch im Sommer auf den Spuren grosser Sporthistorie wandeln (oder eben fahren) kann: den Corviglia/Olympia Flow Trail. Dieser Trail, der zum grossen Teil über die Olympiapiste von 1948 führt, ist zu vergleichen mit einem flowigen Abfahrts-Pumptrack, und war im Winter 1948 Schauplatz der Olympischen Spiele. Er führt von Corviglia (Bergstation) über Sass Runzöl und Alp Nova nach Chantarella (Mittelstation). Es werden steiniges Gelände, wildromantische Alpenwiesen und duftende Arvenwälder - insgesamt 480 Höhenmeter - bewältigt. Dabei ist der Olympia/Corviglia Flow Trail keineswegs nur etwas für abfahrtsbegeisterte Mountainbiker; hier hat die ganze Mountainbiker-Familie ihren Spass. Passionierten Flow Trail-Fahrern steht die Corviglia-Bahn für den Mountainbike-Transport von St. Moritz Dorf bis Corviglia zur Verfügung. «Flow» und Fun pur sind garantiert!

Voraussetzung: Wer die Flow Trails auf Corviglia fahren will, soll kein absoluter Beginner sein, sondern bereits über ein wenig Erfahrung mit Biken auf unebenen Strecken verfügen. Der Flow-Trail-Nutzer verfügt generell über eine gute Kondition, hat sein Bike im Griff (kann gezielt bremsen, schalten und lenken) und nimmt auf andere Rücksicht. Zudem respektiert der Biker, dass auf allen Strecken absolute Helm-Pflicht herrscht.

 this trail is essentially an amazing downhill pump track that feels like it never ends! I will ride it again someday.

 Molto bello e curato adatto a tutti.
Semplice se preso con calma e invece molto veloce e divertente per chi ha una certa manetta.
In pratica è un pump track naturale!
Occhio alle mucche!!
