St. Moritz is an official Swiss Olympic Training Base and has gained the label “Swiss Olympic Training Base Gold”. At 1,856 metres above sea level, the centre is located at an ideal altitude for training.
Altitude training: top athletes worldwide swear by it. Endurance athletes, in particular, value St. Moritz’s high altitude at 1,856 metres above sea level. All who train here benefit from the dry and bracing alpine climate and the ideal weather conditions with an average of 322 days of sunshine a year. As a result, St. Moritz makes the perfect choice for training camps.
Alongside the top athletes who prepare for major competitions in the Engadin, other enthusiasts are also welcome to use the facilities – including amateurs as well as non-Olympic sportspeople from Switzerland and abroad. The training facilities are constantly upgraded to the highest standards. The region benefits from long experience: the first facilities for an altitude training centre in St. Moritz were set up as far back as 1967/68, with a view to preparing for the Olympic Games in Mexico, 2,000 metres above sea level.
St. Moritz Tourism (Sports & Events) is committed to continuously improving its High Altitude Training Base. We rely on your feedback in order to know where to begin. Please fill out our survey under: Feeback to the High Altitude Training Base
