There are rivers that don't have as much flow as this trail, I would kill to ride that.
(Nov 7, 2012 at 22:04)
Wow! Not thats what flow is all about..
(Nov 8, 2012 at 2:28)
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.

it really easy like that :-)
the distances in europe are not that far!
(Nov 7, 2012 at 23:04)
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!!
(Nov 8, 2012 at 2:30)
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:
Check out my other pics of this summer in Graubünden as well:

Suvretta Pass too and the trail down to Spinas or to St Moritz too is great. Off the Chantarella Alp Nova too is tremendous
(Nov 9, 2012 at 7:03)
and the official opening was this year....
(Nov 7, 2012 at 14:04)
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!

(Nov 8, 2012 at 7:15)
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!
(Nov 8, 2012 at 14:06)
Who are you? Do you have a company? Contact info through Darco? What are the other plans? Don't be shy
(Nov 12, 2012 at 9:19)
Hey Lee, I'm Shane Wilson with IMBA's Trail Solutions program. Feel free to message me for more info. You can also talk to Darco at Allegra Tourismus if you're looking for info about Graubunden Bike or the production of the video. And thanks for the complements about the trail too, nothing is ever good enough though!
(Nov 7, 2012 at 15:49)
It's the best bike park trail I've ridden in Schweiz. More here
(Nov 8, 2012 at 2:31)
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.
(Nov 8, 2012 at 14:06)
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
(Nov 9, 2012 at 1:34)
Yes, absolutely, no offense meant or taken. Just exchanging thoughts here...
(Nov 9, 2012 at 11:43)
Got it - thx for discussion. Written word is hard to express meaning sometimes
(Nov 7, 2012 at 12:48)
I've to try it next year! now it's full of snow....
(Nov 7, 2012 at 17:27)
Thredbo take note!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Nov 8, 2012 at 11:01)
Totally cool. I need to ride this while I'm here in Germany. I wonder if it's too much for the family...?
(Nov 9, 2012 at 1:36)
Nope, easy going trail and also lots of other opportunities around there to entertain the family.
(Nov 7, 2012 at 15:02)
Hi. What's the name of the song?
(Nov 9, 2012 at 1:16)

(Nov 8, 2012 at 16:21)

(Nov 7, 2012 at 22:16)
Same clip used twice at :32 and 1:41?
(Nov 8, 2012 at 7:37)

That looks incredible. Need one here!
(Nov 7, 2012 at 14:38)
Next stop: St. Moritz

(Nov 7, 2012 at 14:50)
(Nov 7, 2012 at 13:47)
