125 Years St. Moritz Bobsleigh Club
Bobsleigh is part of St. Moritz’s DNA. The first trials with a "new sport", sledging with a bobsleigh, took place a few years before. The founding of the SMBC marked the birth of a fascinating winter sport as well as one of the most legendary sport clubs in the world. In order to fittingly celebrate the anniversary, the SMBC compiled a diverse programme for the 2022/23 winter season together with St. Moritz. From the beginning of November, the St. Moritz Design Gallery will have pictures depicting the 125-year history of the oldest bobsleigh club in the world on display in Parkhaus Serletta. And on 5 January 2023 – exactly 125 years after the world’s first bobsleigh race – the SMBC will hold a "historic race". Historic sledges and clothing from that time will take visitors back to the 19th century. Another highlight this winter is the opening of the Cresta Run and the St. Moritz Bobmuseum in the newly renovated Scala cinema on 5 January 2023.
With the IBSF bobsleigh, skeleton and parabob sport world championships, another major sporting event is due to be held from 22 January to 5 February 2023. No chemical substances at all are used, which also makes the Olympia Bob Run the most environmentally-friendly bobsleigh run in the world. For those who dare, there is also the opportunity to enjoy a thrilling ride thundering down the famous bobsleigh route as a guest along with a pilot and a brakeman.
Amusements on the Lake – 20 January until 28 February 2023
Look forward to attractions, activities, and events on the frozen Lake of St. Moritz: under the title "Amusements on the Lake", offers such as ice skating, Polo matches or golf ensure carefree hours under the St. Moritz sun.
On the ice: the core of the activities is a one-kilometre-long natural ice rink, a natural ice field for ice hockey and the Olympic natural ice rink for speed skating. Practical: skates can be rented directly on site.
Try Skijöring where a galloping horse pulls you across the frozen lake on skis while an experienced jockey guides the action from the saddle. Alternatively, the lake can be crossed while cross country skiing or on one of the many winter hiking trails. Furthermore, local restaurateurs provide varied catering.
