50 Years of Engadin Skimarathon
It has already been 50 years since when on the 16th of March
1969, around 900 skiers made the first 42.195 kilometer trek
between Maloja and Zuoz. What began as a minor event for a
few active sport fans has in the meantime grown into the biggest
cross-country skiing event in Switzerland. In 2018 we will
be properly celebrating the 50th holding of the Engadin Skimarathon
with a special program and many additional attractions.
