One and Only in St. Moritz

It is a natural ice run toboggan track, built from scratch every year with snow which is then iced, as from the inception of the Run in the winter of 1884/85. It starts in St Moritz and winds its way down a narrow valley to what was the village of Cresta, but which now forms part of Celerina. It is approximately 3/4 mile (1,212 m) in length with a drop of 514 feet (157 m). The gradient varies from 1 in 2.8 to 1 in 8.7. The map of our Run gives you additional details.
Starting Points
There are two starting points, Top and Junction. Riders from Junction begin opposite the Clubhouse, about one-third down the Run from the top. Only experienced riders can qualify to ride from the top. The Run has 10 corners, all of which are named. The most infamous is Shuttlecock. If a rider is out of control, he risks going out at Shuttlecock, the most famous corner of the Run. Fallers at Shuttlecock automatically become members of the Shuttlecock Club and are entitled to wear a Shuttlecock tie. (www.cresta-run.com)
