The Olympia Bob Run St. Moritz - Celerina is not only the oldest bobsleigh track, but also the only natural ice bobsleigh track in the world.
Within three weeks, the track builders from the South of Tyrol create it each year anew. The team models the run by hand and thus without big machines. Snow and water are the only building materials – it is done totally without chemistry. For more than hundred years, this 1’722-meter-long ice sculpture excites athletes, fans, spectators and holiday visitors. All in the heart of purest nature.
The Winter Olympics of 1928 and 1948 and the Youth Olympic Games 2020 accorded a high reputation and worldwide standing to the Olympia Bob Run from St. Moritz to Celerina. At the edge of this historical bobsleigh track, you have the possibility to watch the athletes during trainings and competitions in the disciplines monobob, 2-man or 4-man bobsleigh, para sport, skeleton, luge, and bob run skating.
