“La Diagonela” is a cross-country skiing fun run in classic style. The field of participants comprises all kinds of people – professional athletes and people for whom sport is a hobby compete to win. The start and finish of the Diagonela is Zuoz. The 65 kilometre course which has to be mastered has everything the cross-country skier’s heart desires: it takes you past Celerina, La Punt Chamues, Madulain, Pontresina, Samedan, S-chanf and St. Moritz.
For those who find 65 kilometres a bit too far, the smaller version of the “La Diagonela”, “La Pachifica” (the relaxed race) is the better option. This starts in Pontresina, and finishes after 35 kilometres, also in Zuoz.
