Cross-country skiing in Pontresina, the Engadine

Pontresina is something of a nirvana for cross-country skiers. No surprise there: Up to 220 kilometres of trails stretch around the Upper Engadine lakes and through the side valleys, enabling guests to train on the Engadine Ski Marathon route, to test their own limits on racing trails, or to complete an additional training session on the illuminated night trail Cuntschett at the cross-country skiing centre. During the season, it is illuminated daily from 17:00-21:00. Devoted cross-country skiing lovers extend their season into fall and spring on the Alp Bond, it takes you along the RhB tracks of the famous Bernina Express. At the end of November, the next cross-country season opens with the pre-season trail (a 3.3 km long, artificially snowed loop-trail: Cuntschett), temperature permitting.
