The Upper Engadin is heaven for cross-country skiers, with its superb combination of spectacular landscapes, trails of outstanding quality, and, of course, the all-important guarantee of snow.
Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains enjoys a fantastic position at one of the main intersections of ski-trails in the high valley. Surrounded by 200 kilometres of cross-country trails, the hotel is the perfect place for seasoned skiers and novices alike to take to the slopes.
Head to the cross-country centre in the park to rent cross-country skis, book your lessons and get detailed trail maps and the most recent information about the trails and snow conditions.
Be sure to plan some after-dark skiing with the night-trail from 5.30pm until 9.00pm. Taking you directly alongside the hotel and beautifully illuminated all the way, it's a truly unforgettable experience.
From one of the longest loops in the Engadin near Zuoz to the Direttissima (the 'direct route') across the three lakes, there's a route to appeal to every skier. More ambitious skiers shouldn't miss the chance to train on the legendary route - the 42 most famous kilometres of trail in Switzerland - where they'll tackle the picturesque side valleys or enjoy a circuit on the racing route near St. Moritz.
