Trail runner on the lake of Silvaplana

Winter trail running

While the Engadin summer provides trail runners with root-covered rugged mountain paths, the snowy season offers them a whole new running territory. Amid our high-alpine scenery, you will experience magnificent running sensations on snow, across snow, through snow and – when snow is falling – even under snow.

With the extensive network of immaculate winter trails marked by pink signposts and freshly prepared each day, you will probably spend some time deciding which trail to tackle next. So maybe our recommendations will help you choose?
