Olympia Bob Run

The world’s last remaining natural ice run in the Upper Engadine

The Olympia Bob Run St. Moritz – Celerina was opened in 1904. This makes the ice channel in the Upper Engadin the oldest bob track in the world and, at the same time, the world’s last remaining natural ice run. The other tracks in Europe, North America and Japan all have to be artificially iced over, since they are not located at such a climatically favourable altitude.

The tradition is that in the last week of November each year, the southern Tyrol track builders arrive to build the 1700-m-long ice channel from St. Moritz to Celerina, using 5000 m3 of snow and 4000 m3 of water.

Courageous guests get the chance to thunder down the ice track themselves, accompanied by professionals. The bob taxi rides can be booked at the Olympia Bob Run directly. Pre-booking is required.
