Today we continue with the event presentation of season XI with Engadin La Diagonela. The 65-kilometer race takes place January 16th in the beautiful Engadin valley.
In the following days we will present all season XI Pro Tour events one by one.
The 65-kilometer La Diagonela is the largest cross-country ski race in classic technique in Switzerland. It partially follows the same beautiful course as the famous Engadin Ski Marathon. The event has three distinctive features; a stunning scenery, a uniquely nice atmosphere and high altitude. The course runs from Zuoz via La Punt and Celerina to the lake of St. Moritz, then over the lake of Staz to Pontresina, the Engadin airfield back to Zuoz.
The Engadin valley is famous for its extravagant scenery, sunny days and wonderful towns that give the area its distinct look and feel. Engadin truly stands for exquisite experiences where the past is as alive as the present, and the Swiss nature is simply spellbinding.
There are more than 220 km of groomed tracks in the area, which makes the valley a perfect place to spend some time before or after the event. There are also several breathtakingly beautiful glaciers that can be accessed by skiing.
