Since 2006, Pontresina has been something of a platform for artists. Featuring stone, rock, wood, water, snow, ice, light or air – a vast range of creations using the elements and local materials have seen the light of day. Indeed, from the early days, art trails/Vias d'Art Pontresina has been the focus of the Culture Commission’s programme. To date, there have been three winter and two summer exhibitions. The art trails/Vias d'Art Pontresina includes exhibitions in public spaces, which take place every three years. The art trails in the winter are internationally renowned as snow art competitions. The art trails in the summer, however, are designed as a platform for Grisons artists to exchange with artists from a guest canton.
