 There are rivers that don't have as much flow as this trail, I would kill to ride that.

 Wow! Not thats what flow is all about..

 No need to kill. Just take a plane to Zürich, then the train to Chur and then the train to St. Moritz. Then the Chantarella funicular to the of the mountain aaand off you go.... Should be achievable in ~10 hrs if you live on the east coast USA.

 Well I know who my travel agent would be for the trip, hahaa. Damn dude, the way you spell it out you make it seem like it's just a simple trip to the supermarket. If I make it over there I'll look you up, hahaa. Stoked that you get to ride this though, it looks sooooo fun.

 Now everybody calm down and check for the price of a day ticket...

I rode there 1 or 2 summers ago and it was not yet worth it at all, extremely expensive, lots of waiting time for the shuttle, and very low indication (if any) of where the trails are. Now that looks better and I may give it another try next summer. Looks as flowy (less jumpy) than "Crank it up" which is so much fun. Alright it's decided, I'll give it another go!

Otherwise I'll stick to the map and all the cool trails I can find between Samedan and Poschiavo (Bernina Trail anyone? 1200 m downhill and then back to the pass with the train). That's a sweet area to ride: bikes are allowed on most of the trails, it doesn't rain a lot and the dirt drains water really well. Paradise? Well I'd move there if I could!!

 I was recently there (July). The track really flows nicely. Could use some more jumps and technical sections. The cost is really not high, given what kind of trail paradise you have in the vicinity. We even went up to Piz Nair: www.pinkbike.com/photo/8508674

Check out my other pics of this summer in Graubünden as well: trickn0l0gy.pinkbike.com/album/tricknologicfotos

 Suvretta Pass too and the trail down to Spinas or to St Moritz too is great. Off the Chantarella Alp Nova too is tremendous

 St. Moritz has endless backcountry singletrack in the surrounding mountains and this gem now provides an excellent bike-specific opportunity. The local builders have done a great job and let's hope there is more to come!

 It's the best bike park trail I've ridden in Schweiz. More here www.pinkbike.com/news/Switzerland-for-Dummies-Engadin-St-Moritz-Part-4-of-6.html

 Nope, it is surely nice, but it is way far from being the best. Go check out Davos and the Jakobshorn or some of the amazing trails around Crans-Montana.
  • + 1
 trick - notice where I said its just an opinion and also that its the best that I've ridden. Have not ridden Crans yet. I thought Jakobshorn was good but this was (again in my opinion) better

 Thx for the post Tyler! St. Moritz was a great place to build trail, and it's only going to get better. We've got more new trails in the works for next year!
