Two cross-country skiing events in one beautiful valley
49th Engadin Skimarathon - 12 March 2017
The Engadin Skimarathon is not only the most well-known sporting event in the country, but also a beloved meeting point for the world’s elite. The “Engadiner” is the largest cross-country skiing activity in Switzerland and the second largest worldwide. Furthermore the Engadin Skimarathon is member of World Loppet. Since the first holding in 1969, the international resonance and renown of the event have grown strongly. In 1977, the number of participants breached the ten thousands for the first time. Since then, the number of participants has rounded to 13,000 people per year from roughly 50 different countries.
3th La Diagonela - 21 January 2017
La Diagonela is an open classic-technique cross-country skiing event, which leads through the upper Engadin with its start and finish line in the village of Zuoz, covering an originally planned total distance of 65km. The event’s little sister is the less strenuous la Pachifica, covering 35km from Pontresina to Zuoz.
The Engadin’s classic race complements the well-loved and established Engadin Skimarathon, held annually in March. La Diagonela is scheduled just one week prior to the Marcialonga in Italy’s Val di Fiemme.
