On Saturday, January 21, it’s time for the sixth event of Ski Classics Season XIV, Engadin La Diagonela. The Swiss event is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2023.
The 55-kilometer Ski Classics Pro Tour race is the sixth event of Season XIV, takes place in the spectacular Engadin Valley, and is the largest cross-country ski race in classic technique in Switzerland.
Engadin La Diagonela has been an important part of the Ski Classics Pro Tour since its inception in Season IV. According to the organizers, the event has three main attractions: stunning scenery, high altitude, above 1.800 meters above sea level, and a unique atmosphere.
There are more than 220 kilometers of groomed tracks in the area, making the valley a perfect place to spend some time before or after the event. There are also several glaciers in the valley, offering a striking display of nature.
The Engadin valley is famous for its grand scenery, sunny days, and beautiful towns that give the area its distinct look and feel. Engadin truly stands for captivating experiences where the past is as alive as the present, and Swiss nature is simply stunning.
For the Engadin La Diagonela’s tenth anniversary, expect many battles on the high-altitude course as the Pro Tour skiers fight for glory in Season XIV’s sixth Ski Classics event.
